Roberto Mignemi, CEO of Cybertech, launches his proposal for a CyberSecurity Bonus to encourage companies to invest in security. Cybersecurity education and consciousness about the major risks are essential values that should be transfered to companies through a specific reward system.
“All cybersecurity projects should be awarded with a tax credit, as in place for construction. I believe that this type of governmental support could generate a fast increase of our country’s security level. Cybersecurity wouldn’t be perceived anymore as an additional cost, but as an enabling and strategic factor for digitalization, with direct access to the resources deployed by the Recovery Fund ». This represents a crucial step and unrepeatable opportunity for the relaunch of the entire country – according to Mignemi.
DO COMPANIES NEED TO CHANGE PRIORITIES AND STRATEGIES IN ORDER TO DEFEND THE BUSINESS FROM NEW CYBER ATTACKS? “At the moment the most strategic activity is to monitor and to respond to eventual attacks.” – said Roberto Mignemi, CEO of Cybertech, in the interview with Data Manager.
“Managed Security Services are essential especially for companies that don’t have advanced defense systems in place. We created a”tailor-made” Managed Security Services offering in order to satisfy all f our clients, depending on the number of events that need to be managed. This approach makes our Managed Security Services offering accessible to all companies. Building up on themonitoring services, offered in collaboration with the Engineering Group, our offering includes a series of closely related services: vulnerability assessment,SIEM,incident response and our SOC (Security Operation Center) for a 24/7 perimeter monitoring.”
How to change the approach? The first step is to work together with the client in order to map the actual company security status and the surface that is exposed to threats.
“We are not talking about setting up projects worth millions, the ones that solve everything at once, instead we recommend a reference framework adaptable to changes with defined priorities and countermeasures and actionable resolution or mitigation program in case of detected vulnerabilities. This is the approach – suggests Mignemi – that everyone should adopt in order to manage security issues, because it is impossible to do so without being aware of the risks involved. The risk analysis allows us to focus on the areas at greater risk, making it easier to define a remediation and monitoring plan. Rational and systemic management of security should be a starting point in order to foresee and then implement further actions in medium and long term. Often, however, this structured approach isn’t yet very clear to most companies.” – observes Mignemi.
“Most companies tend to addopt the “reactive” method, trying to solve the single problem while ignoring many other vulnerabilities. Sensitivity and understanding of the security issues vary depending on the market maturity and on the type of company. The banking industry is well aware of the security matters for at least twenty years.” – explains Mignemi.
«The situation is yet different for SMBs, where the problem is rarely addressed effectively. While the Industrial world is slowly becoming more aware of its vulnerabilities and of the disastrous consequences of a an eventual stop in production. We created a “tailor made” Managed Security Services offering to satisfy the needs of our clients, indipendently of their degree of maturity or the type of industry.»

During the health emergency, the efforts and resources are being concentrated in the fight against Coronavirus. At the same time, an increase of cyber-attacks targeting the world of health were reported globally, and the victims happen to be the hospitals, Ministries of Health, University Clinics and research laboratories that manage big amount of sensitive data, icrucial in the battle we are fighting against the invisible enemy.
Italy hasn’t been spared from cyber-attacks and, for this reason, Cybertech, with a deep knowledge of the key processes in the healthcare industry and of the biggest vulnerabilities, decided to support the Healthcare structures that have been strenuously engaged for 2 months in the struggle that has upset the entire country, by offering pro bono cybersecurity services to raise the level of security and reduce the exposure to outside threats.
During the last two days, on September 24th and 25th, we were one ofthe sponsors of the biggest international cyber event in the world that took place in Rome at the spectacular Convention Center “La Nuvola”.
It was the perfect setting to share our vision and to represent the italian cybersecurity excellence in front of thousands of attendees, 117 speakers, nearly 100 companies, startups and organizations from over 50 countries.
L’intervista alCEO Cybertech, Roberto Mignemi pubblicata da Digital360.
Le minacce informatiche sono sempre più sofisticate e pericolose. Gestirne la complessità, per le aziende, è quindi diventato praticamente impossibile.
In questo scenario di evoluzione della cyber security in cui le aziende puntano sempre di più verso un outsourcing della sicurezza, demandando a società con i giusti skill e le giuste competenze la protezione del proprio perimetro virtuale, il presidio di un SOC esterno diventa di fatto inevitabile: questa soluzione, infatti, garantisce professionalità e livelli di sicurezza molto elevati. La complessità delle minacce, inoltre, può essere gestita con servizi ad hoc calibrati sulle esigenze dei singoli clienti.
Strumenti tecnologici all’avanguardia come l’intelligenza artificiale e il machine learning possono inoltre fare la differenza nel contrasto alle cyber minacce. Nel tempo, infatti, si è passati dal gestire e monitorare le minacce al prevenirle. Oggi si va verso il predirle e questo comporta l’utilizzo di sistemi di machine learning che permettono di anticipare e capire che potrebbe arrivare la minaccia.
Il commento di Roberto Mignemi, CEO di Cybertech: “Ormai i tempi degli attacchi informatici sono sempre più veloci e c’è bisogno di questi strumenti per anticiparli, uniti comunque all’intelligenza umana che permette di fare quel fine tuning fondamentale per discriminare se questi possibili allarmi sono delle reali minacce o no”.
