Rome, Italy

Cyber Crime Conference

Sessions are either in English or Italian

2023 closes with alarming data about cybersecurity, all the main authorities in the field confirm the growing trends of cyber attacks and the dangers of a security posture that is often still too weak to reject them.

As a result, the debate on the subject is becoming increasingly heated, as demonstrated by the new regulations (from the UN Treaty on cybercrime to the European AIA) aimed at protecting personal data and Strategic Digital Infrastructures from new threats, as well as managing the central role assumed by Artificial Intelligence both in terms of attacks and defense tools.

Like every year, our B2B events will contribute to this debate by connecting the most relevant stakeholders with each other. Large industry and SMEs, representatives of institutions and experts from the academic world will meet again to share information, goals and good practices in the sector.

Spread over two days, the event will be opened by multi-voice panels and will continue with individual speeches by professionals, researchers and representatives of the IT Industry, who will explore the most current challenges. While at the exhibition area it will be possible to learn about and test the best security solutions on the market through one-to-one meetings and hands-on areas set up by the sponsoring companies.

An unmissable opportunity for anyone who wants to keep up with a evolving risk landscape, a place for discussion between a qualified audience and authoritative speakers where they can concretely explore the problems and solutions of security in the ICT field; All in a stimulating context and totally free of charge.

Compendium on Mainstreaming Cybersecurity in Development

Join us for the unveiling of the Compendium on Mainstreaming Cybersecurity in Development, a collaborative effort led by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sweden, the International Telecommunication Union, the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise, and Microsoft.

This compendium is a collaborative effort driven by a shared vision: to bridge the gap between the cyber resiliency capacity building communities and the development cooperation communities, with the objective of mainstreaming cybersecurity into the broader framework of development work, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The compendium builds on a series of workshops and engagements held across the globe, bringing together expertise from government, industry, and international organizations. By bringing together cyber resiliency capacity building actors and development practitioners in diverse settings, from Accra, Singapore, New York, Paris to Kyoto, we have gained valuable insights, identified new challenges, and discovered new opportunities for collaboration.
