Facts, names, rumors and next steps (not only for Copasir)
What will be the next steps in terms of Intelligence and cybersecurity
This is what the experts are asking themselves after the torpedoing of the head of Dis, Contiano Gennaro Vecchione, replaced by Palazzo Chigi with ambassador Elisabetta Belloni.
At the same time, the Draghi government confirmed both the heads of Aisi and that of the Aise.
The observers of the sector are scrutinizing the words and moves of the undersecretary to the prime minister, Franco Gabrielli, who is in charge of services and security at the behest of Prime Minister Draghi.
What is the model that Gabrielli has in mind for the security agency, which has supplanted the idea of ​​Vecchione and Conte of a foundation within the Dis for cyber security
There are those who believe that there is an Israeli-style perspective: “New Israeli intelligence-gathering methods see ‘dramatic improvement’ in results”.
It will be seen.
In the meantime, the experts are also pointing their attention to Copasir, not only for the decision to clarify and regulate relations between 007 and politicians in the wake of the Renzi-Mancini case: the question of the presidency is at a standstill.
In parliamentary circles there are those who observe a potential mediation, which would also be blessed by the Democratic Party: to foresee a leading position in another body in the sector for the League to leave the Copasir seat.
It is believed that that national cybersecurity coordination center could be a ground for smoothing out the tensions between the Brothers of Italy (to whom the Copasir presidency is based, according to constitutionalists and jurists also from the left, such as Valerio Onida and Luciano Violante) and Lega (who it would thus compensate for the exit from the presidency of Copasir now the prerogative of the Northern League player Raffaele Volpi who should now theoretically control – as the Corriere della Sera has maliciously pointed out – the activities for the safety of a ministry, such as that of Economic Development, headed by Giancarlo Giorgetti, of the same party and of the same current of the Carroccio, remarked Giovanni Bianconi of the newspaper RCS).
With regard to cybersecurity, there are still the latest implementing decrees of the National Security Perimeter (Law 105/2019): to complete the defenses, the decrees on the screening of technologies and on the laboratories that control the tech equipment are needed.
Furthermore, as Roberto Baldoni, Deputy Director of the Department for Security Information (Dis), explicitly told ITASEC, in May and awaiting the decree on notifications and security measures, in June the one to identify the categories of technological products to be subjected to preventive screening and in August, finally, the provision to accredit the laboratories that will have to carry out these checks.
The last piece is represented by the controls on the technologies: check the safety of what you install before it is in its place. The direction will be entrusted to the National Assessment and Certification Center (Cvcn) al Mise (Ministry of Economic Development headed by Giancarlo Giorgetti), which however has yet to complete the process to recruit 70 technicians after a call launched at the beginning of 2020.
Some control centers will be structured in the ministries of defense and the interior, however the plan is to accredit also – and it is also emphasized – external laboratories, setting the quality standards to entrust them with these delicate tasks. The overall “governance” of all this is an extremely delicate matter.
There is to consider – the sector analysts remark – the date of June 23, 2021: starting from this day there will be 6 months of tests to establish whether the system of rules that Italy has adopted to protect itself from cyber threats will hold up or not and how to intervene.
As you can see, there is a lot of meat on the fire. Hopefully you won’t burn too much.
