We are the meeting point for cybersecurity in the Basque Country.
What is BCSC?
In order to achieve our objectives, we lead and support a multitude of initiatives that contribute to raising the level of maturity of cybersecurity in the Basque society. The centre’s work can be grouped into 3 main blocks.
We take the form of a response team to cybersecurity incidents and offer prevention and response services.
In order to face future challenges, it is necessary to possess tools that empower companies and professionals.
Promoting our ecosystem
With a view to attracting investment and talent, we collaborate with Basque companies and contribute to the development of their businesses.
The Basque Cybersecurity Centre is made up of:
Basque Government Departments
• Economic Development, Sustainability and the Environment.
• Public Governance and Self-Government.
• Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics.
At the international, state and local levels we align with:
At the local level, we align ourselves with the Basque network of science, technology and innovation, and with key public actors of the Basque Government (EJIE, Ertzaintza, Department of Education, Izenpe, AVPD, etc.) as well as with numerous professional, business and citizen associations operating in the Basque Country. At the state and international level, we collaborate with other organisations focused on providing joint and coordinated response to cyberthreats, and others focused on attracting investment and promoting the Basque cybersecurity ecosystem.
Institutional strategic plan 2025
We are developing a technological project of excellence to position the Basque Country as an international benchmark in the field of industrial cybersecurity.

Global Epic Soft Landing Program
A unique opportunity to work, for a trial period, in the marketplace of one of the 13 security ecosystems for co-creating and adopting world-changing solutions.
International collaboration for innovation in cybersecurity
We participate in international initiatives that serve to drive cybersecurity innovation globally, strengthen existing cybersecurity ecosystems, drive the development of the cybersecurity value chain in the EU, and help foster business investment in cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity Smart Regions
At BCSC, we are part of the “Cybersecurity Smart Regions” partnership, which aims to develop interregional cooperation to create synergies between regions specialising in cybersecurity, facilitate the development of the EU cybersecurity value chain and address challenges hindering the commercialisation of new and existing products and services in Europe. The strengthening of cyberlocal ecosystems in Europe plays a fundamental role in structuring the European sector.
EDIH, Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) in Europe
DIHs are a one-stop shop where industrial companies, especially SMEs, start-ups and mid-cap companies, can get help to improve their business, production processes, products and services through digital technology. The European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH) will play a central role in the Digital Europe Program (DEP) to stimulate the broad uptake of Artificial Intelligence (AI), High Performance Computing (HPC) and Cybersecurity as well as other digital technology by industry (in particular SMEs and mid-caps) in Europe. BCSC is closely following this new initiative through our presence in the different ECSO working groups.
