More questions

Within the umbrella of Industry 4.0 or the Fourth Industrial Revolution, industrial firms are advancing in the field of digitalisation, but their vulnerability to cyberattacks has also become obvious. Given Gipuzkoa's industrial capacities, it is important to create cybersecure products through well-shielded production processes. Shielding and securing computer equipment are essential for the development and protection of advanced manufacturing. This area is one of the most strategically important for the province if Gipuzkoa is to continue to be a benchmark in the production of different products.
Gipuzkoa has a large number of cutting-edge firms specialising in cybersecurity, leading technology centres, and universities providing major academic coverage in this area. We are therefore in a position to promote a solid project, where knowledge and technology can be placed at the service of industrial competitiveness.
Our Project centres on:
  • Promoting generation and transfer of knowledge and technology.
  • Encouraging and incentivising the implementation of cybersecurity-related practices in business.
  • Offering prevention and intervention tools.
  • Promoting entrepreneurship and strengthening the cybersecurity industry.
Cybersecurity is a growing industry, given its business activity, its capacity to generate skilled employment and its future prospects. The project provides us with a great opportunity to develop highly-skilled professional careers and to shield information, and thus guarantee the competitive advantages of Gipuzkoa's industry.
