The cybersecurity node was born with the mission of facilitating a cybersecure digitalization to the business fabric. To this end, the node directs its activity to the support of SMEs from awareness and diagnosis, action guide and technological consulting, to support in the search for partners and suppliers who can give an answer to the challenges identified, always with cybersecurity in mind.

The node is also aimed at those entities that already include cybersecurity in their value chain, providing services aimed at training and innovation, with the goal of promoting the sector.
