To fight the threat of cyber terrorism, industrial espionage, cyber blackmail
The best response in an increasingly worrying scenario – characterized by an ongoing increase in cyber terrorism, industrial espionage and cyber attacks by international groups engaged in Cyber Crime – can result only from initiatives aimed at strengthening cooperation between institutions, organizations and operators that manage critical infrastructures on the one hand and technology players on the other. The ultimate goal should be to guarantee that critical national infrastructures are secure as well as to preserve the resilience of organizations operating in industries that are essential to Italy’s economic growth.
The “Cybersecurity Summit 2016” organized by The Innovation Group in Rome aims at illustrating and discussing the new regulations on which the European Institutions have recently reached an agreement (EU General Data Protection Regulation, NIS Directive – Network and Information Security), the Safe Harbor “case” and current regulations governing the international transfer of personal data, and the latest European Cybersecurity strategies. Italian best practices will be presented with reference to the implementation of defensive measures in the Public Sector, the evolution of SOCs and CERTs and the protection of critical infrastructures and industrial facilities (Industrial Internet).
Thanks to the presence of major Italian and international experts, the event is also a unique occasion for exchanging experiences and networking, discussing emerging trends in the security arena, identifying necessary countermeasures, designing and developing innovative Security Governance and Cyber Risk Management solutions.
