CSI Radar (Cyber Security International Radar) presented its agenda today, with more than 40 presentations and a high percentage of women experts: they represent almost 40% of the agenda. Many of them represent Latin American countries: Dominican Republic, Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Colombia.

CSI Radar, which will hold its first edition at the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones de Sevilla from June 12 to 16 in hybrid format, will be attended by multinationals and leading cybersecurity institutions.

Women, at the forefront of cybersecurity

CSI Radar is firmly committed to making women cybersecurity experts visible. Proof of this is the large number of female speakers that complete this agenda (almost 40%).

María Jesús Almazor, CEO of Cybersecurity and Cloud at Telefónica Tech, and one of the world’s top-rated female executives in the field of cybersecurity, will be in charge of opening the CSI Radar opening ceremony. She will talk about how cybersecurity in the enterprise environment is facing new paradigms such as Zero Trust, the demise of the security perimeter and cloud security.

According to Telefónica Tech, it is essential that companies, regardless of their size, can develop their business in a cyber-resilient way, through an appropriate cybersecurity strategy and accompanied by the best technology partners.

Isabel Tristán, IBM’s Director of Security Software, who has a career of more than a decade and a half in the North American company, will also participate. Tristán will talk about cybersecurity at the speed of business. According to IBM, today’s business landscape continues to be defined by change and uncertainty. Leading companies are using technology to create competitive advantage and thrive in the face of challenges such as inflation, supply chain disruption, tight labor markets, sustainability requirements and cybersecurity threats. They recognize that hybrid cloud and AI have become the most transformative technologies of our time, capable of addressing these immediate problems and preparing their businesses for the future by increasing speed and productivity, reducing costs, driving innovation and fueling growth.

Arancha Jimenez, Head of Cybersecurity Services and Products at Eviden, a leading business line in digitalization, cloud, big data and security at Atos, will also be a speaker. In his presentation he will talk, in a joint panel with AWS, about security in public Cloud platforms and how to make a secure journey to the cloud. For them, “the move to the cloud is an opportunity for organizations, but it implies a new threat scenario that must be properly managed”.

The National Police will have female representation at CSI Radar. Lucía López, Inspector of the Technological Crimes Group, will talk about the actions followed by the National Police in the fight against cybercrime, approaching cybersecurity from the perspective of the National Police as a body belonging to the State Security Forces and Corps.

Marta Valcarce, Senior Prosecutor for Minors in Seville, will address the most relevant cybercrimes that are currently occurring among minors, as well as the procedure used for their resolution. Eva Álvarez del Manzano, Head of Special Projects at Edefa Group, will be another of the keynote speakers at CSI Radar. With expertise in space station security and environment, Edefa Group leads online defense information for the Hispanic market and has collaborated with NATO in cybersecurity.

Associations in which women play a key role in cybersecurity will also have a relevant role in the first edition of CSI Radar. An example of this is Encarni Iglesias, President of ‘Stop Violencia de Género Digital‘. She will talk about the use of the Internet: The most used tool in today’s digital violence.

María Medina will also be another of the female speakers. The General Manager of Medina Media Events, organizer of the event, will present news about ‘The Observatory‘, the new platform that promises to be the ‘Netflix’ of new technologies and that offers the possibility of networking and access to specialized content, as well as the most important news about New Tech.
