October 18, 2023 | 7:35 p.m.
Just a few days ago, the royal society, the historic neighbors of the lions, notified their partners of worrying news: they had suffered a cyber attack. But beyond mere news, it leads us to reflect. What does a cyber attack really mean in our current society? Are we really safe?
A cyber attack, multiple victims
Online security has become one of the main concerns in today's world. Data such as names, surnames, addresses and, most delicately, banking information, may be exposed. In the case of La Real Sociedad, the leak of this data has affected subscribers, shareholders and members of RS Fan and RS Laguna.
The real risk: impersonation and loss of control
Sounds like a plot straight out of a science fiction movie, right? But no, it is a reality. Imagine that someone could impersonate your identity or have access to your finances. Disturbing, right? The Royal Society has warned its partners about the possibility of identity impersonation and loss of control of your personal data.
Actions and responses to the attack
Faced with such a challenging scenario, the club has not remained idly by. From the first moment, all protocols were activated to contain the attack, securing its systems and guaranteeing their correct functioning. Furthermore, the incident has already been reported to the relevant authorities, including the Data Protection Agency. An action that shows us the club's seriousness and commitment to safeguarding the integrity of its members.
The message after the crisis
The txuriurdin team has proven to be more than a football club, it is a community. And as such, he seeks to protect his own. Therefore, the recommendation to be alert to suspicious communications and verify banking transactions are prudent actions that seek to avoid further problems.
What does this experience leave us?
Cyberattacks, unfortunately, are an increasingly common threat. In a hyperconnected world, digital security is a priority. Institutions, companies and people must be alert and adopt preventive measures. However, this event reminds us of something essential: the union and solidarity. In the face of adversity, it is essential to act quickly, transparently and responsibly.
Botton line, the recent cyberattack on La Real Sociedad shows us the vulnerability in the digital age, but also highlights the capacity for reaction and commitment of organizations to protect their community. It is a wake-up call for everyone: in the information age, protecting our data is protecting our identity.
