Cybersecurity, virtuous relationship between public and private sector required11/18/2018 by
Valerio Pastore, Boole Server's founder and CTO, has outlined the relationship between cybersecurity and government.
The growing number of cyberattacks on Italian government agencies is worrying. The fact that the data of citizens are increasingly digitized is forcing government agencies to open up to the Internet, exposing them to new risks, which become very real when one does not invest in IT security and on updating the systems in use.
The current risk, however, is failing to complete the digitization process due to the fear of cyberattacks.
The solution is investing more in training the personnel who develop and manage the various IT systems, as well as raising awareness among end users.
"With great powers comes great responsibility": Since government agencies manage sensitive data of citizens, they cannot fail to store them properly.
