Piedmont wants to be a protagonist and have an impact on the subject of cybersecurity, in particular for the development of quantum technologies, increasingly important for the security of communications, by activating a network of skills and actions, also as a key contact for the National Cybersecurity Agency. This is the message launched at the conference ‘Cybersecurity 4.0 – The future of IT security is now’ promoted by the Region. “Cybersecurity is a fundamental issue, and we are increasingly aware of it at this moment, in which we see that the Ukrainian conflict is also taking place in cyberspace and therefore the protection of data and networks is equally crucial for the security of countries” , underlines the councilor for innovation Matteo Marnati, highlighting that “some of the best scientists, researchers and companies active in this field are working in Piedmont, an avant-garde work that will make us safer, even in such a delicate moment for democracy, and to make our businesses safer “. “Creating an ecosystem” is also essential according to Matteo Sonza Reorda, Deputy Rector of Research at the Polytechnic where, he recalls, “two years ago we activated a cybersecutity orientation with over 100 students enrolled and now a master on quantum and connection is about to start. with cybersecurity “. Also for Pietro Asinari, scientific director of Inrim, “putting skills into a system is the only way to have the concrete possibility of making an impact. Quantum cryptography is becoming increasingly popular and the increasingly effective use of these technologies is an indispensable step. “. Also at the meeting Luca Nicoletti, of the National Cybersecurity Agency, who recalled how “within a few weeks we will launch a new version of the national cybersecurity strategy” and Pascal Maillot, deputy head Unit Hpc and Quantum Technologies European Commission, who illustrated the European project EuroQci for the construction of an infrastructure for quantum communication.
“Digital autonomy and the security of communications is of fundamental importance – he underlined – and we see it also today with the Ukrainian crisis”.
