The government of the Balearic Islands has signed an agreement with the Spanish National Intelligence Center according to which the two institutions will work together to strengthen cybersecurity.

On July 5, the Councilor for European Funds, University and Culture of the Government of the Balearic Islands, Miquel Company, and the director of the Spanish National Intelligence Center (CNI), Esperanza Casteleiro, signed an agreement by which the two institutions will collaborate to strengthen the mechanisms and protocols in place for cybersecurity in the Autonomous Community, in accordance with the guidelines established by the European Union.

The CNI will facilitate the implementation of the most suitable tools and technology at all times. For all these actions, the National Cryptology Center, which is part of the CNI, will be at the disposal of the Government in order to carry out reviews or visits to the facilities as and when required.

The agreement, in force for a period of four years, does not bring any economic benefit to the majority of the parties and the initiatives are financed by European funding mechanisms.

“Sharing all relevant incident information, response mechanisms and training is key to improving cybersecurity at regional, national and European levels,” the company said.
