FIRST BILBAO. Technical Colloquia

Space is limited

20, 21 November

Workshop 1 I Location: Room-4 I Language: English

10 talks offered by experts

The Basque Cybersecurity Center, as member of FIRST – the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams, is organising the FIRST Bilbao Technical Colloquia, a discussion forum for members of FIRST and guests to share information about vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and all other problems that affect the operation of incident response and security teams.

The format chosen by the Basque Cybersecurity Center for this Technical Colloquia is 10 open sessions led by security experts that will work through technical subjects in highly interactive small groups of participants. Participation in these workshops, directed by members of FIRST and people with a technical background, is limited to 100 participants.


Coming soon: the FIRST BILBAO program!


Industrial Cybersecurity

Space is limited

Wednesday 20 November
10:30 - 18:00

Workshop 2 I Location: Room-5 I Language: Spanish

Workshop on Cybersecurity Diagnosis in an Industrial Automation Environment 


The workshop is based on a case study in order to acquire detailed knowledge on the state of cybersecurity in an industrial facility by identifying weak points and understanding the cyber risks that the facility is facing; and a proposal of actions to improve cybersecurity. The workshop is structured to apply a cybersecurity diagnosis to an industrial environment.

Topics addressed in the workshop:

  • Industrial automation technologies and risk scenarios.

  • Industrial use cases.

  • Characteristics of the diagnosis.

  • Methodology and interviews.

  • Systems diagnosis.

  • Physical security diagnosis.

  • Third-party diagnosis.

  • Diagnosis report and presentation.

Technology Classrooms

Space is limited. Language: Spanish

Thursday 21 November

09:00 - 11:30.

Classroom 1 I location: Room-4



IoT concepts, such as the edge/fog computing paradigm for the collection, analysis and management of real-time data, as well as the main keys for the design and use of Big Data architecture and other technological foundations that help its implementation, such as DevOps and Cloud. These technologies will be presented in the context of different industrial applications (production, tracking, predictive maintenance, energy management…).

09:00 - 11:30.

Classroom 2 I Location: Room-5



How a digital replica of physical assets allows the use of information on how devices function in different scenarios throughout their life cycles, for the development, improvement and optimisation of products and processes, operation as well as maintenance of these assets. Applications of this concept will be shown in different sectors and industrial fields.

12:00 - 13:30.

Classroom 1 I Location: Room-4



The unique characteristics of 5G technologies will be presented to other generations, describing and exploring different industrial use cases that take advantage of these specific characteristics.

12:00 - 13:30.

Classroom 2 I Location: Room-5



Additive manufacturing includes multiple work-oriented technologies with different types of materials for various use cases. Experts in these different technologies will present the latest developments and provide examples of projects applied to different industrial sectors.


Visual Intelligence Workshops

Wednesday 20 November & Thursday 21 November

Location: Room-3

In conjunction with the GAIA Association and alongside the plenary sessions, practical workshops will be held that show the capabilities of gamification technologies in different phases of an industry:

  • Virtual Reality,

  • Augmented Reality,

  • Simulation,...

Workshop participants (space is limited) can experiment with apps that are already operational in companies and analyse the use of gamification technologies for their organisation.
