Undersecretary Tripodi opens a seminar on cybersecurity in Bucharest: full agreement on the issue between Italy and Romania

By proxy of the Italian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, the Italian Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Maria Tripodi opened in Bucharest the seminar “Cybersecurity: a prerequisite for business excellence”, held at the Residence of the Italian Ambassador to Romania.

The event is part of a context of strengthened bilateral cooperation in the field of cybersecurity between the two countries, as witnessed by the recent signing – on the sidelines of the Intergovernmental Summit in Rome – of a memorandum of understanding between the Italian National Cybersecurity Agency and the Romanian counterpart agency, which provides for the exchange of information and analysis on cyber threats.

Undersecretary Tripodi’s speech was centered on the importance – as repeatedly emphasised also by Minister Tajani – of the issue in such a complex and delicate geo-political context, where the cyber space plays a crucial role in the security of states, companies, and therefore of all citizens.

“We are faced with technological progress that is now a reality; at the same time, it is necessary to adopt an effective management system for cyberspace and all related technologies,” Tripodi stressed. “Italy and Romania are on the same wavelength in adopting the measures envisaged in the OSCE framework, focused on the protection of communication infrastructures and the identification of vulnerabilities. Cybersecurity is a new field in which institutions and companies will be able to aim at new goals for the benefit of bilateral relations,” concluded the Undersecretary.
