José Capote has experience in the telecommunications world since 2004, having worked in consulting companies, operators and technology manufacturers, in areas such as engineering and network planning, solution sales, marketing and business strategy, regulation and cybersecurity. Prior to his current position, José Capote was the Director of Marketing and Network Strategy of the Operator Business Unit at Huawei Spain.

Cybersecurity is an integral part of Huawei’s ICT solutions, implementing resilient end-to-end network security capabilities, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of digital services for users. Maintaining an adequate level of service in the face of threats is key to ICT solutions, safeguarding service continuity, reducing risks, and ensuring the value that digital transformation generates for enterprises. Over the past 30 years, Huawei has worked with operators to build more than 1,500 networks and has helped millions of enterprises digitize while keeping their networks secure.

The Impact of EU Regulations on the Cybersecurity Sector

Antonio Relvas, Director Cyber Security Strategy at ZTE, will speak on the impact of current and future EU regulations on telecom operators.

Relvas has over 20 years of experience in TMT (technology, media and telecommunications), with a consulting approach and a strong strategic and commercial point of view, working alongside CxO and senior management of leading companies and governments. Track record in advising, developing and implementing changes in the posture of global organizations with respect to GRC and Corporate Resilience: Risk, Cybersecurity, Information Security, Product Security, Business Continuity, Crisis Management and Digital Transformation.

For ZTE, security is a priority in all senses and they have an impact on it from the collection of materials and during the design, manufacturing and distribution process; both in the products and in all the equipment and elements that make up the networks they deploy.

For this company, cybersecurity problems affect everyone. That is why they have three cybersecurity centers in Europe: one in Belgium, one in Italy and recently one in Germany.

Their aim is to allow regulators, customers or any other interested party to perform any kind of verification, including access to their source code, in order to openly evaluate their products and remove any misgivings about those they bring to Europe.

And that is for both network elements and terminals; with a completely transparent and collaborative attitude, they want local authorities or customers to have every facility to perform any inspections they deem appropriate.

CSI Radar‘ (Cyber Security International Radar) is born with the aim of giving visibility to all leading companies and multinationals, as well as universities, institutions, manufacturers and experts who are working to improve cybersecurity in companies and public administrations in Spain and worldwide.

CSI Radar‘ will follow the pioneering line marked by Medina Media Events since 2015 with top-level international events on 5G technology (5G Forum), Ultra High Definition (4K HDR Summit) or Space and Underwater Tourism (SUTUS), which stand out for their agendas, speakers, their media projection, their audiovisual platform and the Networking of senior executives and attendees.
