Privacy and cyber security: the new challenges for Public Administrations

The reference scenario

Public administrations are undergoing a process of transformation and innovation of the services offered to citizens and businesses, especially through the use of digital technologies, with the aim of increasing efficiency, decreasing distances between public bodies and users and facilitating access to services.

However, when talking about digital and IoT systems and, more generally, web platforms, we cannot fail to consider the related cyber threats. Recent hacker attacks on public bodies, including courts, universities and public entities, show that there is still a long way to go to ensure adequate levels of IT infrastructure security.

With the coming of digitalization, the key assets to protect are sensitive citizen data, and their management and storage. It is therefore necessary to invest in the preparation and training of staff entrusted with data management, and the development and maintenance of IT systems.

For the many services offered to citizens, web platforms (INPS etc) become attractive preys for cyber criminals, and must be properly protected against any attacks aimed at slowing down or interrupting the delivery of services offered (DDoS, ransomware).

Sensitive data - this time in their "physical" form - must also be appropriately protected to prevent theft and unauthorized removal. An effective system of access control and perimeter protection of buildings is therefore essential. It is also necessary to protect buildings and public places, such as squares or parks, against vandalism.

Lastly, with the Coronavirus emergency, managing access to public buildings has become a fundamental issue, as it must guarantee the customers’ and employees’ safety, whilst preventing the formation of queues and gatherings.

It is estimated that 67% of Public Administration websites are at risk of hacker attacks, with steadily increasing rates of DDoS attacks, spear phishing and account compromise campaigns.

Axitea for PA: we protect sensitive data

For the PA’s security needs, Axitea offers a wide range of services, to protect physical and logical assets.

Customer sensitive data security is ensured by monitoring and protection services for computer networks, workstations (PCs, servers), e-mail traffic and - in this period that has seen a large increase in WFH - secure remote connections via VPN.

Axitea also offers anti-DDoS (Denial of Service) services to ensure optimal functionality of web portals and prevent interruptions and slowdowns in the provision of online services. In the unfortunate event of a data breach, through the Log Retention service, it is possible to retrace the critical events that occurred in the network, and verify the causes and effects of cyber attacks and/or faults.

Lastly, our consulting services, provided through a team of specialized consultants, verify and implement sensitive data management systems compliant with the latest privacy / GDPR regulations, including the provision of high quality training courses and awareness-raising programs on multiple topics (GDPR Privacy, Cyber Security, training for working from home, ...).

Physical security solutions

Axitea is present with its services in the main purchasing portals of Public Administrations, such as MEPA

The access control and perimeter protection systems prevent unauthorized access and theft of goods, data and sensitive documents; for business and public space security purposes, Axitea designs and installs advanced video surveillance and license plate reading systems, as well as maintenance services on existing security systems.

Lastly, body temperature measurement systems allow access to public buildings, in full compliance with safety protocols (temperature below 37.5° and presence of PPE), avoiding the creation of outbreaks and discomfort.
