XII STIC Conference CCN-CERT
Within the National Cryptology Centre (CCN), an organisation attached to the National Intelligence Centre (CNI), we are fully aware of the mission entrusted to us and of the need to transmit it to Spanish society. And among these functions is that of contributing to the improvement of Spanish cybersecurity, being the national alert and response centre that cooperates and helps to respond quickly and efficiently to cyber-attacks and to actively confront cyber-threats.
In this task of creating a strong culture of cybersecurity, the CCN undertakes a large number of information and awareness actions, in order to provide all the actors involved with the tools and knowledge necessary to protect their information, systems and services. And of all of them, the STIC CCN-CERT Conference, whose twelfth edition we are now presenting, has become the main cybersecurity event held in Spain, not only because of the great success of the event (it is expected to surpass more than 1,700 attendees in 2017), but also because of the quality of the topics covered and the experience and knowledge of the speakers.
This time, the slogan chosen for this XII STIC CCN-CERT Conference is “Cybersecurity, for an effective response and deterrence”, convinced, as we are, of the necessary paradigm shift in the protection of cyberspace. Convinced as we are of the need to advance towards the paradigm of resilience, accepting a residual risk, where the capacities for monitoring and surveillance are increasingly important, together with an effective response at all levels of the State (citizens, companies and the public sector).
Convinced as we are of the need for a response focused on detection, traceability and the taking of criminal action against cyber-criminals, so that measures can be developed that are credible and dissuasive against attackers.
And all this, within the framework of a growing cooperation between the public and private sectors, promoting the intelligence community and building an atmosphere of mutual trust.
This is the only way to strengthen cybersecurity in all its areas and to deter the attacker from his intentions.
