ElevenPaths, Telefónica’s Cybersecurity Unit, celebrates the VII Security Innovation Day, a national and international benchmark event on innovation and security, under the slogan Guards for Digital Lives. An event contextualized in the film Blade Runner and in the dystopian world that the film predicted for November 2019.

The event begins with the opening of Pedro Pablo Pérez, CEO of ElevenPaths and CEO of Telefónica’s Business Security Unit, in which he makes a fun summary, full of similarities with the Blade Runner movie, of what is going to be told throughout of the encounter.

They tell us how it has evolved from the old, manual operations centers without any automation, to the future ones. These are already integrated with digital services such as Big Data, Cloud, IoT and Digital Workplace, going through automation and Artificial Intelligence and creating the DOC (Digital Operations Center) of the future.

This DOC integrates both the automation and orchestration of services, as well as the management of threat detection and response, relevant information about them and advanced incident analysis, all this managed by Artificial Intelligence.

It’s time to talk about start ups and innovation centers, located in different parts of the country. Rames Sarwat (Director of Alliances, new products and Chief Security Ambassadors), and Paloma Castellano (Director of Wayra Madrid Telefónica) tell us how, Through open innovation, Telefónica is committed to technological start ups to create innovative projects.

Hdiv Security: Its activity consists of protecting web applications and APIs, being a complete solution that covers security errors and business logic failures in the SDLC (Systems Development Life Cycle).

CPI Consulting: This cybersecurity company is a specialist in the protection of Wi Fi networks, offering specialized solutions in the protection of Wi Fi and Bluetooth systems.

On the other hand, they highlighted the relevance of the recently opened innovation centers such as C4IN and Tegra, located in Spain and whose objective is both to create technology, disseminate and raise awareness of cybersecurity, and to attract specialized talent. In the coming months, a new center will be opened in Valencia, Soth (Security of Things). ElevenPaths plans to continue in the coming years with the opening of more centers both in Latam and in the rest of Europe.
