Real environments for testing, operation simulation and cybersecurity training


Cybersecurity is a fundamental aspect for organisations and is becoming increasingly relevant as companies move forward in their digitisation process. 

The Basque Digital Innovation Hub’s Cybersecurity focus area provides companies with an authentic environment for testing, simulation and training. This focus area is coordinated by the Basque CyberSecurity Centre (BCSC) and consists of five interconnected laboratories spread throughout the region. The laboratories, owned by prominent stakeholders in the Basque Science, Technology and Innovation Network, are used to foster entrepreneurship and innovation, with the capability to carry out cybersecurity projects in various fields, such as smart-grid, automotive, blockchain, AI, secure industry and product evaluation, among others.
