Indra, one of the leading technology and consulting companies in the world has been selected by the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) to join the network of companies that work with this agency exchanging intelligence on cybersecurity to reinforce its mutual situational awareness and detect, prevent and respond to any cyber-attack.
The industrial collaboration agreement was signed in October 2017 in the framework of the NATO Information Assurance Symposium (NIAS18), the largest NATO cybersecurity conference that took place in Mons, Belgium.
Indra has become the first Spanish company to form part of the NATO’s cyber coalition, working side by side with some of the world’s leading companies in the field of cybersecurity and cyberdefense.
General director, NCIA, Kevin J. Scheid said that, with this agreement, “we are strengthening international cybersecurity alliances and optimising NATO’s collective defence missions. Only by working together will we be able to cope with the host of digital threats that we face.”
Security director, Indra, Miguel Angel Acitores highlighted, “The pride that this milestone represents for Indra and the company’s desire to support the agency with all its knowledge and experience as a leading company in cybersecurity in Europe. At Indra, we are convinced that public-private cooperation in this area is essential. We need to optimise our cyber forces in the most efficient and consistent manner possible.”
The agreement highlights the leadership position and solid knowledge that the company maintains in this vital area for the security and defence of the countries and their economies. Indra develops its own cybersecurity solutions and has a network of advanced cybersecurity centres (i-CSOC) distributed all over the world to protect the networks and systems of its customers seamlessly.
