Cyber ​​security, the most important threats of 2023

The CEO of HWG Sababa, which as we reported on Tech Business are two cybersecurity companies recently merged into a single Italian excellence, explained to us what the most serious threats are in 2023. According to the Cyber ​​Defense Index 2022/2023 of MIT Technology Review, Italy is in eleventh place globally for policy commitment in the regulation in cybersecurity. But it still lags behind other countries.

The promotion of one culture of awareness and the training on cybersecurity are key elements for an effective and protective cybersecurity strategy for yourself and your organizations.


Aceti explains that one of the problems remains the shortage of talents in this sector. We need to invest not only in companies’ internal training but also in offering more university courses dedicated to cybersecurity. Furthermore, the problem of cyber crime is often underestimated, exacerbated by poor investment in research e development.
