Italian Police, SIA Renew Cybercrime Prevention Agreement

A three year-old agreement between the Italian state police and SIA for preventing and countering cyber-attacks has been renewed in Rome.

The SIA Group is made up of six companies: the parent SIA, Italian companies Emmecom, Pi4Pay and TSP, South Africa’s Perago and SIA Central Europe in Hungary.

The renewed agreement, signed by the chief of police Alessandro Pansa and SIA’s chief executive Officer of SIA Massimo Arrighetti, has the aim of sharing procedures for intervention and exchange of information vital for preventing and countering of cyber-attacks by terrorists and criminals.

For the state police, this activity will be performed by the National Computer Crime Center for the Protection of Critical Infrastructures (CNAIPIC), run by the postal and communications police.

The original agreement, signed at the end of February 2011, implemented a decree from Italy’s Ministry of the Interior dated January 9 2008, which identified the critical IT infrastructures of national interest – the IT or electronic systems and services, managed by public bodies or private companies, which govern the sectors crucial for the country.

SIA commented: “The positive results achieved underline the importance of continuing the synergic cooperation between the postal and communications Police and SIA, aimed at the prevention and repression of cybercrime and inspired by the principle of participative security.”
