Resumen 15ENISE


The 15th edition of the International Meeting on Information Security (15ENISE), organized by the National Institute of Cybersecurity (INCIBE), was held on October 19 and 20, which has reopened its doors combining a face-to-face program of conferences and exhibition space, with online activities. Our CEO Iago Fortes and Inés Lamas, our International Commercial Director for Inprosec, and our Managing Director Ibán Morillo and our Cybersecurity Consultant Alba Ramos for InprOTech have travelled to León.

The event was inaugurated by the Secretary of State for Digitalization and Artificial Intelligence, Carme Artigas. Also on this day, the general director of INCIBE, Rosa Díaz, presented the Institute’s Strategic Plan for the period 2021-2025, which highlights aspects such as the culture of cybersecurity, the promotion of industry and R&D&I, training, capacity building and talent.

The event was attended by more than 2,200 people in person and online. This year’s edition, under the slogan ‘New Visions’, has had 64 national and international speakers and the participation of more than 100 companies with face-to-face and virtual participation. We were able to attend several of the scheduled presentations.

Internationalization as an opportunity for Spanish Industry

Presented by David Barroso, CEO of Counter Craft

In this presentation, the CEO of Counter Craft, whose service has been contracted by NATO to hunt cybercriminals with a system called Cyber Deception that “tricks” the hacker by simulating that he has been successful in order to know his ‘modus operandi’.

He also talked about the opportunities and recommendations for internationalization within this sector, based on his own experience. And where the most interesting conclusions were:

  • The most important markets and with more opportunities for the sector: USA and Israel, although at the same time they are the most competitive.
  • First step to position oneself internationally: to be present in the USA or to have clients from there “generally in this sector if you don’t have clients from the USA you don’t exist“.
  • With regard to Europe, the most open markets are Germany and the Netherlands, with the French market being the most complex.

Emphasis was placed on the importance of being present, of being visible in the country of destination and of making yourself known to analysts. The importance of having a presence in the target country and hiring local people was also stressed.

The challenges of the CISO as a guarantee of Digital Transformation

Moderated by Roberto Baratta, ISMS Forum

And with the presence of:

  • Fanny Perez. Global CISO of Codere.
  • Olga Forné. CISO of Mediapró.
  • Óscar Sánchez. CISO of Puig.
  • Marian Blanque. CISO and DPO, Abertis Infraestructuras.

This round table was attended by people with whom we have worked closely, since almost all companies are SAP users to a greater or lesser extent.
The session highlighted the upcoming challenges that await us such as regulations and applicable legislation, migration to “the cloud” or Artificial Intelligence among other issues.
Importantly, all of them highlighted that there is greater involvement. Top and middle management are more aware and proof of this is the increase in the budget that all these companies will have by 2022.

New challenges for critical sectors in Industry 4.0

Moderated by José Valiente, Industrial Cybersecurity Center, CCI.

And with the presence of:

  • Manuel Casanova. General Manager of SICA, RNLI laboratory.

  • José Antonio Cascallana. Director of C4IN, CyberSecurity Innovation Center. Telefónica Cybersecurity & Cloud Tech.
  • Sergio Vidal. Commercial Director of Industrial Process Automation at Schneider Electric.

Where they talked about issues such as the challenges that companies must undertake to adopt Industry 4.0 with an assumable risk, also gave importance to the main cybersecurity risks that exist, highlighting the training and awareness that increasingly has more weight.

Other points were also highlighted, such as the growing complexity of attacks, and the serious consequences that a cyberattack can cause, ranging from large economic losses to human damage.


As every year we have attended the ENISE, it has been a very enriching experience which we hope to repeat next year.
