This document presents an introduction to the events that occurred in Latin America and the Caribbean, where banks are compromised by cyber-attacks, the same case is also seen in Ecuador, where losses from these attacks would amount to $ 6 billion by 2021. Our goal is to provide an analysis that demonstrates the social impact that cybersecurity has in Latin America and the Caribbean and a way to measure cybersecurity to combat threats due to constant technological progress and the great privacy risks presented to the day with cyber systems. The deductive method was used, adopting and generating a set of activities to evaluate the Total Cybersecurity (TC) of the cyber systems and/or companies to have a control of the security that it has and the improvements that can be implemented to prevent or combat Possible cyber threats or vulnerabilities. It resulted in cyber-resilience activities and activities based on the main functions before, during and after a cyber-attack. These activities are evaluated by the frequency of use, allowing each activity to assign a value and in this way apply the formulas proposed and obtain the CT, achieving the percentage of cybersecurity that has been implemented and discovering the weaknesses of the systems that They must be strengthened. It was concluded that in certain countries of Latin America and the Caribbean they have very little interest in the development and expansion of cybersecurity in their lands, unlike the progress of cybersecurity in European countries.
