Over the past few years, cyber attacks around the world have become highly sophisticated, higher-profile and increasingly widespread, with state organisations and international corporations falling victim. At a more subtly damaging level, there are potentially thousands of other cybercrime incidents which go unreported and unnoticed across businesses and organisations of all sizes. This partnership will allow Finmeccanica - Selex ES and ITU-IMPACT to pool their respective expertise, facilities and resources to address these threats across ITU Member States and help protect national critical infrastructures.
