The cybersecurity program


The objective of the investment is to strengthen the national digital ecosystem by enhancing cyber threat monitoring and management services. Thus, capabilities to monitor, prevent and respond to cyber risks and events will be significantly strengthened through a national cyber services network, appropriately integrated with key public and private partners.

The National Cybersecurity Agency (ACN), together with the Dipartimento per la Trasformazione Digitale (DTD), will steer the enforcement of the investment by fostering synergies and interconnection across the Public Administration, the industry and the technology service providers.
