Cybersecurity: Unione europea e Italia. Prospettive a confronto


Information and communications technologies (ICT) are central to the key functions of modern society, representing the most important component of infrastructure. However, the increase in opportunities provided by ICT are paralleled by greater vulnerability. This volume addresses the question of cybersecurity, the new and growing need for security for economic and social development, by analyzing the initiatives undertaken in this field at the European Union level and in Italy. The EU and Italy are acquiring the minimum technical and normative instruments needed to manage cybersecurity: the EU by providing the guidelines for national initiatives, and Italy on the basis of the National Strategic Framework for Cyberspace Security and the relative National Plan for Cyberspace Protection and ICT Security.
