Meeting with AIAS – Vodafone, Unione Confcommercio – Communication Police

The evolution of media and social networks, the distributed information and the internet are a concrete help for business, but can represent a menace for confidential information and for the internal data concerning customers.
The risk leakage of uncontrolled leakage of information that can be confidential or even strategic for the business development, due to cybercrime actions made with traditional or new and sophisticated systems, can be fatal for the business survival. Companies hit by cybercrime have to compete on the market in unfavorable conditions, as their competitors already know which are their intentions and their customers profile. So, unexpected failures arise, and apparently inexplicable copies of products and/or ideas migrate to the competitors.
The aptitude to undervalue the risk, the behavior to consider security as a cost and not an investment and the distrust towards the technologic approach can give aid to the attack to the immaterial patrimony of little and medium size companies.

The meeting took place on April 18, in Milan.
