Finmeccanica - Selex ES and IMPACT to collaborate against cyber threats

Finmeccanica – Selex ES and the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT), a key partner of the United Nations’ International Telecommunications Union (ITU), have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on strategic initiatives that will boost international defences against cyber attacks.

The agreement will see Finmeccanica - Selex ES and ITU-IMPACT exchanging information regarding cyber threats and vulnerabilities, as well as engaging in joint capacity-building activities. The expected outcome from this partnership includes improved cyber security across ITU-IMPACT’s partner countries against cyber threats and malicious activities.

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.
