Defense, the first public-private agreement with the Italian Navy on cyber

The Navy has made available to a dozen private engineers two floors of the S. Alessandro barracks on Via Nomentana in Rome. The technicians are employees recently hired by Deas (Defense and systems analysis) spa, a company specializing in the cyber sector. The armed force makes its logistics available, the company provides services and support: a case of a “transfer contract”. One of the first, this time, in the cyber sector. In the S. Alessandro barracks there is the Navy Telecommunications and Information Center. High operational intensity, many information flows reserved and classified.

The development of resilience

The “National cyber strategy” – Palazzo Chigi document signed at the end of May by Prime Minister Mario Draghi – among the priority profiles provides “the constant exchange of public-private and public-public information is essential, also through the introduction of communication channels protected and an integrated risk management system “. The public-private hub inaugurated yesterday at the Navy, with the Undersecretary of Defense Giorgio Mulè present, is a case of synergy. Not only a public-private exchange but also a process of acceleration of the systems of protection against attacks. In the background, an increasingly less theoretical perspective on Defense, dictated by needs: knowing how to respond to attacks with as many attacks on digital threats.

Young, specialized, enthusiastic about working for the state

Sources of the Deas tell the ad hoc selection made for the engagement with the Navy which developed lightning fast with a large influx of curriculum from all over Italy: engineers, physicists, data scientist, graduates and often specialized, in the middle class of birth in 1995. “We were struck, in particular, by the great enthusiasm, not so obvious, of wanting to work for the State and thus give a special meaning to their work” they explain to Deas. Beyond classified procedures, the young specialists will provide a broad picture of Deas’ typical cyber services: “Data loss prevention, vulnerability test, analisys & investigation»As you can read on their website (www.deas.it)

The challenge for the Italian Navy

In the two floors of the S. Alessandro barracks granted to Deas, therefore, the “Lvs-laboratory for safety assessment” was built, one of the few in Italy accredited by the OCSI-IT security certification body and the only one so far hosted in a context military. Between cyber and artificial intelligence, a multi-directional challenge, the immediate one, the establishment of security processes against cyber risks. Development of analytical skills, assessment of the intensity and implications of attacks, staff training. The broadest bet, however, lies in the mutual ability to contaminate each other between civilian and uniformed personnel. Interactions not so easy: especially in certain sectors the military world is closed, if not waterproof and reluctant to get involved even for necessary reasons of prudence. But everything changes with cyber. The fences must jump.

Mulè: “Public-private integration is a strong point”

The Undersecretary of Defense, who spoke at the inauguration together with the sole administrator of Deas Stefania Ranzato, underlined how “the State, the government and the Defense demonstrate that they are able to protect themselves in the best possible way by combining the best military and civilian energies . In this barracks of the Navy the union between the public and private sectors is effectively created ». Mulé notes as «cyber security is an issue of absolute importance for Italy. Security understood as the country’s ability to protect its fundamental infrastructures ». According to the undersecretary, the combination conceived at the S. Alessandro barracks is a model that «ensures the capabilities necessary for the armed forces to protect themselves and project in the near future the possibility of training and certifying those who need to protect themselves. And it is the state that has to protect itself. “
