I rischi informatici sono in aumento, anche a causa del difficile contesto geopolitico. Il nuovo regolamento sulla resilienza digitale definisce requisiti uniformi e dinamici di sicurezza per le imprese del settore finanziario. Per una vera rivoluzione, però, ci vorrà tempo.
Il conflitto in Ucraina rende inadeguate le ambizioni di autonomia dell'UE in materia di semiconduttori. Per il futuro meglio puntare su più cooperazione con gli USA.
Unnamed hackers recently targeted servers linked to a Hawaiian submarine cable — and the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), thankfully, “disrupted” it. The specific target, DHS said, was the servers of a telecommunications company “associated with” an undersea cable that carried internet traffic and other data to Hawaii and the surrounding region. International law enforcement cooperation enabled the US and its partners to arrest those responsible.
Sanctions to Russia forbidding the import of dual-use technology have highlighted the importance of reliable supply chains and strategic autonomy in high-tech sectors. The quest for this digital sovereignty has led the EU to recently announce a Strategic Compass to better coordinate its capacity building in the physical and digital spheres. Brussels has also launched the European Chips Act to become a leading player in the semiconductor industry. Are these initiatives enough to better position the European Union in the global technological competition?
Digital sovereignty is a leitmotif in the political agenda worldwide. States around the world are making technological supremacy and innovation the cornerstones of their diplomatic, security, and economic efforts. This trend is even more true in the wake of the Ukraine war. Sanctions on Russia, impeding the import of dual-use technology, have highlighted the importance of reliable supply chains and strategic autonomy in high-tech sectors.
The year 2022 will be remembered for many things: the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the year that both NATO and the EU published their security strategies. For the European Union, the Strategic Compass represents the willingness of 27 countries with different strategic cultures to better coordinate, invest in capacity building, and partner with international organisations such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the United Nations knowing that a secure environment is crucial for European security.
È stata appena pubblicata la nuova Strategia Nazionale per la Cybersicurezza. Un documento che tiene conto del mutato contesto geopolitico e prova a rendere il Paese più autonomo.
Cybert hreats – like ransomware or other types of malwares – are evolving, pervasive, and ubiquitous. They endanger both individuals and organizations across several communities worldwide. They run through addresses networks, information systems, and services, which represent the backbone of contemporary digital societies and the premises for their industrial, economic, and social development.
One outcome of the meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Biden in Geneva last June was the decision to engage in consultations on cyber security. This came as a surprise as Washington has long accused Moscow of meddling, including by cyber means in the 2016 US presidential elections which Moscow has flatly denied.
Cybercrime has created a serious threat landscape over the past few years. Cyber-attacks concern all areas across the internet and ICT infrastructure as attackers’ techniques have reached new heights.
Cyberspace has a gradually expanding structure that connects new devices, systems, and users every new second. This causes threats from cyberspace to change constantly, making it impossible to combat them without cooperation.
Italy is at the heart of the “wider Mediterranean” region, which comprises all countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea as well as Gulf partners. Italy is also multilateralist at heart, a mindset that comes from our history and geographical location, which we mainstream in every field of our work. Inclusiveness is a general principle that we embrace, and it holds especially true in domains where interconnections and interdependencies are defining features, as in the cyberspace.
