Major challenges for US and Chinese multinationals.

Cybersecurity, a technology to help others

CSI Radar will also include “the most vulnerable” through, for example, Carlos San Juan, promoter of the campaign “I’m old, not an idiot“, who will share his vision of this technology as a tool to help the elderly. Also Aitor Fernández, Co-Founder and President of the Spanish Association of Connected Autonomous Vehicles (AEVAC), who is also blind, will give his point of view on the risks that any driver can have, who is vulnerable to autonomous driving.

Talking about cybersecurity is also talking about the State Security Forces, in charge of protecting citizens and combating cybercrime, since anyone can be vulnerable to these attacks.

In ‘CSI Radar’, the International Cybersecurity Radar (June 12-16, Seville), members of the Joint Cyberspace Command of the Defence Staff, ENISA (the European Cybersecurity Agency), the Civil Guard, the National Police and the Local Police of Seville will participate to tell us how cybersecurity works in these organizations and how they help citizens.
