Sviluppi internazionali nel campo cibernetico

Per la crescente proliferazione di tecnologie dell’informazione e della comunicazione (ICT) e la crescente opportunità di scambio in tempo reale e senza confini, le questioni legate alla sicurezza cibernetica affliggono milioni di persone in tutto il mondo, imprese e governi di ogni nazione e tutti i continenti. cyber imm

Pertanto, da diversi anni il tema costituisce oggetto di analisi di molti paesi. Come abbiamo avuto modo di vedere, la regolamentazione dello spazio cibernetico è di per sé molto complessa e necessita che gli Stati lavorino di concerto e con il settore privato.

Nella newsletter di gennaio 2017 vorrei soffermarmi con voi sulle iniziative intraprese a livello internazionale per cercare di affrontare la minaccia cibernetica

 

Missioni all’estero, arriva la legge

Natalino Ronzitti – AffarInternazionali

Il 31 dicembre è entrata in vigore la Legge quadro sulle missioni militari all’estero di cui alla L. 21 luglio 2016 n. 145. Tale L. era stata prontamente pubblicata in Gazzetta Ufficiale fin dal 1̊ agosto; tuttavia ne era stata rimandata l’attuazione a fine anno, tranne la disposizione che riguarda l’integrazione del Copasir, ma solo per la legislatura in corso.

Dopo vari tentativi andati a vuoto, l’Italia si è dotata finalmente di una legge organica per l’invio di contingenti militari all’estero. È stata così eliminata una lacuna. Infatti il nostro ordinamento prevede solo la disciplina della “guerra”, cioè delle forme più macroscopiche di violenza.

10 Most Popular NATO Stories of 2016

BY JORGE BENITEZ, DIRECTOR OF NATOSOURCE

20170105_nato_stoltenberg2016 was full of major developments in European security. Moscow’s campaign against the Western democracies went beyond the DNC hack and interference in the US elections. Russia’s influence operations were also active across Europe, drawing particular concern in Germany and Sweden. NATO’s readiness problem remains a critical vulnerability, particularly among its maritime capabilities. The Alliance also faces a major geo-strategic challenge reinforcing its easternmost members through the Suwalki Gap. The creation of a new intelligence chief in NATO and another embarrassing spy case highlight the growing importance of intelligence issues to alliance members. The following ten stories reveal which issues our readers found most intriguing in 2016….CONTINUA A LEGGERE

Norway, an Exemplar of NATO Burden-Sharing What the Alliance Can Learn From Oslo

stoltenbBy Sigurd NeubauerFOREIGN AFFAIRS

Throughout his unorthodox presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly criticized Washington’s European allies for failing to adequately contribute to NATO. Although the president-elect’s statements raised hackles in the United States and Europe, he did bring up important questions about whether the U.S.-established international order—with its global security guarantees—had disproportionally benefitted allies in Europe and Asia, all on the United States’ dime.

As a founding member of NATO, Norway is not one of those free riders Trump implicated. Norway has certainly benefitted from U.S. security guarantees and has, in the process, transformed itself from an impoverished nation, at the end of World War II, to one of the world’s richest today. But over the past few decades, Norway has prioritized its strategic relationship with Washington and now stands out as one of its most reliable allies.

For one, Norway has played a leadership role within NATO by providing stability and predictability to the North Atlantic, a vast region that also serves as a gateway for Russian nuclear submarines and warships capable of reaching the United Kingdom and continental Europe. Oslo has simultaneously established itself as a leader within NATO when it comes to burden-sharing; and yes, it also pays 50 percent of all costs related to U.S. tanks, armored vehicles, and other defense equipment stored in Norway as part of the Marine Corps Prepositioning Program–Norway agreement, which was reached in 2005 …continua a leggere

The incoming Trump administration faces serious counterterrorism challenges, which Bruce Hoffman argues in our cover article are as significant as any faced since the period around 9/11 with a strengthening global al-Qa`ida network posing the most serious long-term threat. With Islamic State- and al-Qa`ida-aligned groups present in more countries than ever before, Hoffman argues that a reconciliation at some point between the groups is not impossible, and with a large cohort of foreign fighters trained in Syria and Iraq available to them in the future, he stresses the United States urgently needs to reboot its counterterrorism strategy.
