Siemens has expanded the cybersecurity ‘hub’ it has in Madrid thanks to the support of 50 new employees in the last two years. With this investment, the company has passed the centenary of experts in risk management and software in the cloud, as reported in a statement.
From the ‘hub’ in Madrid, inaugurated in 2019, Siemens monitors the cybersecurity of the group’s infrastructures and customers around the world, contributing to the company’s international protection network, which has similar centers in China, the United States, Portugal and Germany.
The Madrid establishment has experts specialized in risk management, operations, solutions and cybersecurity strategies who work on the development of technologies and systems for the prevention, protection and detection of cyberthreats.
Siemens seeks to boost its cybersecurity presence
Thus, Siemens systems help to detect any threat throughout the life cycle of its products and services in order to react quickly to attacks, guaranteeing the highest levels of efficiency that protect the operations of its activity.
The company’s Global Cyber Defense Manager, Karen Gaines, also operates from Madrid. She works with an international team of more than 160 professionals and also leads the global Business Development team to boost Siemens’ cybersecurity presence in the market. . Likewise, to expand its presence in Spain, the company collaborates with the National Institute of Cybersecurity (Incibe) and has created a laboratory in León that acts as a test bench to develop security tools, procedures and controls.
In accordance with the reinforcement of cybersecurity promoted by companies such as Siemens, last year the National Cybersecurity Plan was found in Spain, with 130 initiatives and 1,000 million euros in endowment that seek to intensify planning capabilities, response detection and Spanish companies in cyberspace.
