The digital transition

Processes of digitalisation and interconnection

In an increasingly digitalised and interconnected world, ensuring data security and digital product safety is an absolute priority for all companies.

2020

Since 2020, the Cybersecurity scenario has changed profoundly. Smart working and remote access to company systems together with the proliferation of platforms and online services have accelerated the digitisation process of companies, which are not always ready to welcome change. As a result of this acceleration, computer security protocols have also often been strained with an exponential increase in their vulnerabilities. The resulting attacks and the repercussions on the global ecosystem have demonstrated the inadequacy of most existing solutions and therefore the need to increase cyber defences using every means available today.

The Power
of Crowd

Collective ingenuity is the added and lasting value of Crowd

Countering the risks associated with digital transformation by centralising security controls is contrary to the very logic by which the digital ecosystem evolves. The only effective alternative is to adopt a logical and operational model that harnesses the creativity and expertise of individuals to recognise more vulnerabilities, so as to identify related risks and improve the security of the whole system.

A mental and operational approach

Entrusting the search for computer system vulnerabilities to a collective of professionals, through an open Bug Bounty Campaign, means adopting a more challenging and innovative approach that sees in entrusting a network of professionals ready to talk to each other and to companies the key to understanding the latest computer threats, otherwise hardly accessible to individuals.

The potential of the Crowd

Initially exploited to test software, crowdsourcing is proving to be an effective weapon against cybercrime as well as a perspective and a way of engaging in a world that has changed dramatically with the ever-increasing spread of digital tools at our disposal. Not just a simple support for a transition, therefore, but a flexible resource that allows the scope of testing assignments to be extended beyond the simple technical assessment of a single problem to the general assessment of the vulnerabilities of an entire system.
