The Alba cybersecurity project, promoted by the Ricardo Valle Innovation Institute Foundation (Innova IRV), together with the University of Málaga and the Digital Agency of Andalusia, was presented today at the 4th ESPDEF-CERT Cyber Defence Conference, which is currently being held in Madrid.
The project was part of the inaugural conference given by Javier Candau, head of the department at CCN-CERT of the National Cryptologic Centre, under the title ‘A cyberescudo for Spain. CCN-CERT activity.’
The Alba project, developed by the cybersecurity area of Innova IRV, chaired by Bernardo Quintero, Google security engineer and founder of VirusTotal, is working on the creation of a public access DNS service with filtering for any system with Internet access that guarantees a Digital Shield for Spanish organisations.
This is a service that blocks connections to malicious content (scams, phishing, malware, etc.) and protects all types of devices connected to the Internet (computers, mobiles, corporate and home networks, IoT, cloud, etc.) through the launch of a PMV.
Through Innova IRV’s cybersecurity area, companies, start-ups and research centres work together to implement platforms that contribute to the protection of digital environments, as well as the development of state-of-the-art services for the identification and analysis of vulnerabilities, anti-fraud response, malware detection on devices and the analysis of cybersecurity trends.
