The Event

ITALIASEC – Securing Italy from Cyber Threats

15th -16th May 2018Rome, Italy

Over recent years, cyber attacks have constituted a worrying concern for companies, institutions and governmental bodies. Reports show that the amount of malware vulnerabilities in Italy is considerably higher than the world average and cybercrime has increased by 30% last year. This has made Information Security a top priority for professionals striving to protect Italian most critical infrastructures which, if compromised, could post a serious threat to economy and safety.
The growing frequency and sophistication of these cyber-threats has prompted a huge increase in both funding and attention paid to cyber-security. This, however, is not enough and there is immense need to put in place robust cyber security policies increasing the resilience and security of Italian ICT assets and designing an effective risk management process.
Security and prevention may be expensive but protecting our data is priceless.
ItaliaSec Summit represents the first event in the region for senior security thought leaders designed to help trigger productive discussion and promote best practices with the aim to put together robust policies and standards that will shape a securer future for the country.
