(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 10 – “Critical infrastructures represent one of the most sensitive elements of our society and the most exposed to possible cyber attacks”, warns Rick Driggers, Critical Infrastructure Cyber Lead of Accenture Federal Services, on the first day of CyberTechEurope 2022. “This – he explains – because the operators who manage these infrastructures are late in developing a culture of safety, which has happened much more quickly in other sectors. Today it is absolutely indispensable for companies operating on the strategic infrastructures of countries adopt a proactive policy towards IT security. A convergence between physical and digital security systems is necessary in order to guarantee constant supervision and effective protection, given that any attack could have high costs and interruptions to the supply of essential goods for communities such as supply lines and l electricity, gas and oil pipelines, water pipes, etc. “
Security, he adds, “is now a supranational issue and for this reason, in the area of cybersecurity, Accenture has implemented an ecosystem that implies the full collaboration and joint efforts of the various Accenture Cyber Fusion Centers present in Italy and in worldwide, OT / ICS areas, as well as Accenture Security’s research, development, testing and evaluation facilities “(ANSA).
