The "GLAC Index," created by GLAC Consulting, is Luna's best defense toward cyber attacks. It is calculated with its own algorithm as a method of assessing the level of security of a place or entity. Luna said, "The GLAC Index measures and analyzes the conditions of a vulnerable community and compares the variables and factors that affect the behavior of the entity subject to study. The contribution of this Index could contribute to the prevention and combat violence and cybercrime.
"One of the factors that GLAC Consulting considers is the potential for cyber attacks. As this threat increases with time, it becomes more and more timely for companies to assure their employees and customers that they have systems in place to prevent cyber disaster. GLAC Consulting's mission is to educate and to assist these companies in and entities to develop these programs."
Genaro García Luna is not only the director of GLAC Consulting, but he is also the creator of the AFI during the presidency of Vicente Fox (2000-2006) and former Secretary of Public Safety during the administration of Felipe Calderón (2006-2012). Due to all of his experiences in the realm of security, Genaro García Luna saw the need for a tool that would allow the government to analyze the country as a whole or an entity within it with the greatest number of variables that may affect its security and, with regards to the private sector, have detailed information that would contribute to making decisions regarding potential investments.
