¿Cuáles han sido las tareas y ocupaciones en las que se ha centrado desde su nombramiento en marzo?
Aunque ya traté de explicarlo, se trata de fortalecer la presencia de España en organizaciones y foros donde se tratan las Amenazas Híbridas y la Ciberseguridad. En este sentido,en la UE se trata, en síntesis, de coordinar y presentar la posición española en el HWG de Ciber con la puesta en marcha del Cybersecurity Package asi como enb el Grupo de Amigos de la Presidencia para las Amenazas Híbridas. Además de la Ue, está nuestra presencia en el Centro de Amenazas Híbridas de Helsinki, de cuyo Comité Ejecutivo soy miembro. Nuestra presencia en OSCE en el Grupo de Ciber, en las discusiones en NU, el dfortalecimiento de la cooperación internacional en ciber con la conclusión de acuerdos en la materia.....

Interviene usted en tareas de definicion de actuaciones sobre la gestion global de ciberdelitos a nivel Ue, Otan, etc?
Desde el MAEC intervenimos, como decía, en la definición de la política europea de ciberseguridad y en la fijación de marcos comunes de actuación tanto en UE como en OTAN
To: Julia Alicia Olmo y Romero
España tiene, según sus palabras, un gran prestigio internacional en estos temas, pero ¿qué se puede hacer para contar con más representación española, con mayor distribución y responsabilidad en organizaciones a nivel internacional?
Se trata sin duda de una cuestión de gran calado y es cierto que quizá nuestro alto nivel técnico y profesional así como la calidad de nuestras instituciones no se corresponde con una adecuada presencia internacional. No obstante hemos avanzado en los últimos años, pero hay que continuar en ese esfuerzo. Aunque sin duda se trata de una tarea que afecta a varios departamentos ministeriales, desde el MAEC se viene haciendo un trabajo importante en este sentido y, de hecho, existe una unidad dedicada a ello y especialistas que trabajan tanto en los servicios centrales como en nuestras representaciones en el exterior para intentar mejorar nuestra presencia.
