Abstract

An analysis was carried out of several cyber-attack methods that use Social Networks and Media as their main resource, as well as their different countermeasures to mitigate the vulnerability and risk of information loss. The main objective is to propose a Model for the Management of Cybersecurity, which can be adopted by public organizations in Ecuador. The deductive method and exploratory research were used to analysis the information of the referenced articles, and also the different data published by the written and spoken press. This research resulted in a cybersecurity Management Model for analyzing the impact of cyberattacks and appropriate measures to mitigate their effect through a risk matrix. It was concluded that the model presented is a viable alternative for maintaining and improving cybersecurity and facing threats and cyberattacks, as well as the control of existing risk in the institution, that compromise information security and integrity.
