Back in 2020 , during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak , CCN-CERT needed to act immediately to further enhance the security position of its national health infrastructure . The head of the cybersecurity department at CCN contacted the Trillion operations team after its global offer of support to help protect digital identities within health services . In a matter of hours , the team at CCN was given access to Trillion , every health organisation across Spain was configured in the platform and breached credentials data was being fed back into the CERT .
Protecting a whole public administration
After a period of successful operation across the health sector , CCN-CERT decided that a wider scope for Trillion would provide even greater visibility of digital identities , such as account usernames and passwords , that may have been leaked from third parties and shared for exploitation by criminals .
