A part of the Advanced Computing and e-Science group's research team from the Institute of Physics of Cantabria (IFCA, CSIC-UC) is currently participating in the XV STIC CCN-CERT Conference organized by the National Cryptological Center (CCN), dependent on the CNI, to know the new technologies in cybersecurity field.
In this edition, which takes place from November 30 to December 3 in Madrid, the motto has been "360º Cybersecurity. Identity and data control". Over a total of more than 70 presentations and 24 talks, face-to-face and videoconference, which bring together professionals in the field, public administrations, companies and universities. The main objective of the event, according to its organizers, is "to share experiences and create a culture of cybersecurity that reaches all areas of society".
For IFCA's Advanced Computing and e-Science group, the importance of security in their work areas, such as the institute's Data Processing Center (DPC), is clear when it comes to protecting their systems from possible threats and continuous updating and training in this field are essential.
A security that has been supported by the recent obtaining of the ISO/IEC 27001 standard, on which the Computing group has been working and has been recognized by AENOR. With the implementation of this certificate, the purpose of the IFCA is to improve the information security management, minimizing risks and preserving the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the information; and thus obtaining a greater impact in the calls for computer projects at a national, European and international level.
