The increasing number of cyber attacks against businesses, especially in Friuli Venezia Giulia, has led to the organization of Confindustria’s national roadshow titled “Cybersecurity for businesses in the FVG region: strategic context and development opportunities.” According to Michele Nencioni, General Director of Confindustria Udine, Italian SMEs still demonstrate limited awareness of cyber risks.
The Clusit report has revealed a significant increase in attacks in Italy, with a 40% increase in the first six months of 2023 compared to 2022. This figure is nearly four times higher than the global average. Cybersecurity has become a critical issue, with 9.6% of global attacks occurring in our country in the first half of 2023.
Matteo Lucchetti, Director of the Cyber 4.0 Competence Center, emphasized the importance of the connection between digital transition and cybersecurity. He highlighted how the human element represents a critical risk, with over 80% of attacks exploiting vulnerabilities created by employees or suppliers through social engineering.
The Cyber 4.0 Competence Center, acting as the implementing body for the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), offers concrete solutions and funding to assess the cyber posture of companies, mitigate risks, and improve data security. Certiblok, as a blockchain-based management system, offers an innovative and secure approach, protecting businesses from viruses and server attacks.
