C1b3rWall Academy 2021 is coming to a close with Module 16 “Cybersecurity and Data Science”. In this last part we are joined by Carlos Loureiro from the National Police, Juan Antonio González Ramos from the University of Salamanca, Manuel López, Pablo Plaza and Juan Manuel Corchado from the BISITE Group.

The last module of the C1b3rWall Academy revolves around data. Juan Antonio González Ramos describes the policies that are required to protect an organisation’s data and the keys to a good data security protocol. Meanwhile, Carlos Loureiro will show us how to use the Global Terrorist Database to predict variables in relation to a terrorist activity and its planning.

Manuel López and Pablo Plaza will present DeepSIEM, a platform for cybersecurity management based on artificial intelligence.         

Artificial intelligence and cybersecurity to fight terrorism

Juan Manuel Corchado, director of the BISITE Group and president of the AIR Institute, also participates in module 16, as part of which he will teach us how to use techniques and tools to identify profiles related to radicalisation and terrorism based on projects developed within the group.

BISITE works on a variety of projects whose basis is generally Artificial Intelligence applied across diverse fields. To strengthen the cluster, the IoT Digital Innovation Hub and DIGIS3 have been launched, developing the collaborative infrastructure with other research groups, universities and companies through the AIR Institute, a renowned research centre that is complementary to the cluster.

BISITE, in addition to research, tries to promote scientific dissemination and facilitate the training of experts through programmes such as the current C1b3rWall Academy in collaboration with the National Police, as well as various master’s degrees.

We have completed an excellent programme that will be followed by a new Congress to be held in Ávila from 21 to 23 June. We are sure it will be a great event.
