The CPXG, PuntoGal and Global Cyber Alliance organise a course on cybersecurity

A Coruña, 7 March , 2024 | The Professional Association of Journalists of Galicia, PuntoGal and the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) organize, with the support of the Official Association of Telecommunications Engineers of Galicia, and the Galician Cybersecurity Node, the webinar Towards a new way of talking about cybersecurity: names, numbers and routes, which will be attended by Carlos Seisdedos, Pablo López-Aguilar and Alejandro Fernández-Cernuda. The event will take place next Wednesday, March 20 from 10.00 a.m., through the CPXG’s online training platform, and registration is free of charge.

Cybersecurity news coverage has increased in recent years with a very high social impact. The press knew how to rise to the occasion, maturing its discourse and exercising a clear pedagogical work that managed to bring cybersecurity to the place it deserves among the priorities of citizens. Even so, observing the succession of news items, there is a pessimistic background. We only talk about incidents and problems, and little is said about solutions. There is a sense of helplessness, which has recently been exacerbated by the irruption of artificial intelligence into our lives.

To address this, the Professional Association of Journalists of Galicia, PuntoGal and the Global Cyber Alliance, with the support of the Official Association of Telecommunications Engineers of Galicia and the Galician Cybersecurity Node, are organizing a training day entitled Towards a new way of talking about cybersecurity: names, numbers and routes, which will offer a new perspective for the narration of cyber news.

The webinar will feature three expert speakers: Carlos Seisdedos, researcher and intelligence analyst in international security and cybersecurity and trainer of law enforcement in criminal analysis and cyber investigation; Pablo López-Aguilar, associate director of the security program at the Global Cyber Alliance, worked as a researcher at Pompeu Fabra University and technology director at the Anti-Phising Work group; and Alejandro Fernández-Cernuda, director of engagement for the Internet integrity program at the GCA with more than a decade of experience in cybersecurity. The event will be presented by journalist Valeria Pereiras, member of the Governing Board of the CPXG and will be developed according to the following program:

– 10.00: Presentation by Valeria Pereiras

– 10.20: Carlos Seisdedos: Reflections on the media coverage of cybersecurity.

– 10.40: Pablo López-Aguilar: Internet infrastructures and cybernetic risk.

– 11.00: Alejandro Fernández-Cernuda: The collaborative ecosystem that protects the Internet.

– 11.20: Debate: Keys to a narrative news?

The realization of this training session is part of the collaboration of the participating entities to improve the cybersecurity of journalists. Last year, this joint work materialized in the presentation of the translation into Galician of the toolkit developed by the Global Cyber Alliance to ensure the security of communications and data storage of journalists, which compiles utilities for easy and free use.

The course will be held through the online training platform of the Professional Association of Journalists of Galicia, with limited places, and is free for members and other interested persons. To register it is necessary to send, before Monday, March 18, an email to xornalistas@xornalistas.gal. Places will be reserved in strict order of registration. If you have any questions, please contact xornalistas@xornalistas.gal or call 981 935 670.
