Speretta (Leonardo): support from companies specialized in global security becomes essential
February 15, 2022
Referring specifically to the port sector, Giorgio Volta and Rodolfo Zunino of the Department of Naval, Electrical Engineering, electronics and telecommunications - DITEN university of the Genoa Studies, have highlighted that "the organization of a port is very articulated and rich in interactions between the companies present in the port area and - noted Volta - many critical infrastructures that in the same port area provide their services. If one of the actors was the victim of a cyber attack could cause an unintended domino effect, putting different structures in crisis. To counter such threats Digital therefore requires a good security governance strategy». "It is urgent - added Professor Zunino - an increase in the level of competence, attention and awareness. In this sense a structured training mission seems essential and multidisciplinary, able to offer an organic framework of skills not only technical but also organizational, governance and behavioural'.
"Cybersecurity - he underlined in his speech Orietta Campironi, chief information officer of the company owner Ignazio Messina & C. Spa - is increasingly a critical aspect, essential to preserve continuity and operational security, security of the ship, assets and people. The new operational scenarios, dictated by the emergency period pandemic, with the increasing use of remote work and new collaboration modes, require you to reshape the approach of defending workstations more and more virtual, in the awareness that cyber-crime renews continuously tactics, techniques and procedures with the intent to evade defenses and move without obstacles. The strategy and the approach to security requires a level of awareness and of even higher attention".
