The new US National Cyber Strategy points to Russia, China, North Korea and Iran as the main international actors responsible for launching malicious cyber and information warfare campaigns against Western’s interests and democratic processes. Washington made clear its intention of scaling the response to the magnitude of the threat, while actively pursuing the goal of an open, secure and global Internet.
What are the implicit risks to international security in regard to ongoing cyberspace conflicts? Can Russia, China, North Korea and Iran actually be considered a new Axis? How is Italy preparing to defend itself in this new security context?
The event will coincide with the release of the report Confronting an "Axis of Cyber"? available online from October 24th.
The Conference is the annual event of the Centre on Cybersecurity promoted by ISPI and Leonardo.
Fabio Rugge - Are we really confronting an Axis of Cyber?
Giorgio Mosca - Leonardo and the role of the EU in the cyberspace
Francesco Talò - Is Italy ready to face growing threats in cyberspace?
Tim Maurer - Midterms 2018: what should we expect from Russian hackers this time?

The opinions expressed in this Conference will be strictly personal and do not reflect the position of the Italian Senate.
