The Basque Cybersecurity Centre (BCSC) is the leading organisation in the field of cybersecurity for Basque citizens, businesses and public bodies. One of its main aims is to encourage the adoption of cybersecurity measures in industry, particularly in strategic sectors of the Basque economy. This intends to increase the maturity level of these sectors; therefore protecting them against cyber threats and providing them with a competitive advantage.
Moreover, with the adoption of the aforementioned measures, the BCSC aims to turn the Basque Country into an international model for the application of cybersecurity technologies in our business fabric, and be acknowledged as a meeting point for local cybersecurity suppliers and demanders, as well as leading public-private partnership initiatives at local and inter-regional levels.
Furthermore, the BCSC has become the leading public Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) regarding any incident affecting Basque society and is connected to several public and private CSIRT networks around the world: the BCSC is a member of CSIRT.es, as well as of TF-CSIRT and of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams global forum (FIRST), which is the largest global forum for Computer in Security Incident Response Team Centres.
The Basque Cybersecurity Centre has been born as an area within “SPRI – Basque Agency for Business Development” (https://www.spri.eus/en), a public institution ran by the Basque Government, and more specifically managed by the Department of Economic Development and Infrastructures. The BCSC is an across-the-board initiative which has involved four Basque Government departments since it was established: the aforementioned Economic and Infrastructure Development, the Department of Security, the Department of Education and the Department of Public Governance and Self-Government; in addition to four organisations in the Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network, namely: Tecnalia, Ikerlan, Vicomtech and the Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics. Its activities include research projects, entrepreneurial initiatives and co-ordinated collaboration with other relevant players at Spanish and international levels.
In this context, it is worth highlighting the role played by the BCSC as the representative of the Regions in the Partnership Board of the European cybersecurity Organisation (ECSO, https://www.ecs-org.eu), as well as being a member of the Ecosystems Partnership in Innovation and Cybersecurity, also known as Global EPIC (https://globalepic.org).
