The “Cybersecurity Barometer” is a survey that has reached its sixth edition and was originally conceived in 2017 by NetConsulting Cube in collaboration with Eucacs (European Center for Advanced Cybersecurity) and InTheCyber.

This survey focuses on the scope of cybersecurity in 2022 and creates a maturity model within which participating companies are anonymously assessed on their protective measures and technologies, as well as their processes and organizational structure (governance). It covers a wide range of aspects, both organizational and technological. The main topics covered are listed below:

  1. Cybersecurity Scenario in 2022: includes analysis of major risk factors, attack attempts and their consequences, and impacts from new work patterns.
  2. Governance and role of cybersecurity in companies: includes the presence of resilience plans, the strategic importance of cybersecurity, governance organization, and management of resources dedicated to cyber security.
  3. Defense and detection systems: refers to the presence of Security Operations Center (SOC), coverage and gaps in critical systems and areas, vulnerability assessment activities and penetration testing, cyber attack and vulnerability management, use of advanced analysis tools, cyber threat intelligence, and data protection.
  4. Challenges and priorities: this aspect considers areas where both technological and organizational actions are needed, as well as areas where investments are planned.
  5. Impacts of digital transformation on cybersecurity: includes aspects such as cloud computing, supply chain, OT (Operational Technology) and IoT (Internet of Things) and 5G technology.
  6. Expenditures and investments: focuses on the incidence and trend of expenditures, motivations driving investments, and collaboration with the National Cybersecurity Agency and vendors.

The “Cybersecurity Barometer” reached its fifth edition in 2021 and began in 2017 through a joint initiative of NetConsulting Cube, Eucacs (European Center for Advanced Cybersecurity) and InTheCyber Group. The main purpose of this project is to provide a comprehensive view of the policies, strategies, models and tools related to cybersecurity adopted by Italian companies and entities. This initiative is of particular importance in a context where the expansion and openness of corporate perimeters means that cyber risks and increasingly sophisticated and targeted threats are increasing.

In the 2021 edition, produced with input from leading companies such as Accenture, Cisco, Capgemini, Rsa, Tim, Google Cloud, and Tinexta Cyber, the Barometer provides an overview of the adoption of key measures related to organizational processes and defense and detection technologies. It also analyzes the planned priorities for investment and organizational measures in the 2021/2022 biennium.

The survey also focuses on the evolving cyber threat landscape and the impacts generated by the dynamics related to the Covid-19 emergence, the increasing prevalence of remote working, and the technologies behind digital transformation, such as cloud, supply chain, OT (Operational Technology), IoT (Internet of Things) and 5G.

As in previous editions, an industry maturity model was developed through which participating companies were evaluated on their practices related to cybersecurity technologies and processes to determine their readiness in security issues. The full report of survey results provides further details on these and other issues.

The “Cybersecurity Barometer” reached its fourth edition in 2020 and was conceived in 2017 through a collaboration between NetConsulting Cube, Eucacs (European Center for Advanced Cybersecurity) and InTheCyber. The primary goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive view of the policies, strategies, models and tools used for cybersecurity by Italian companies and entities.

This initiative is particularly relevant in a context where the expansion and opening of corporate perimeters has led to an increase in cyber risks and increasingly sophisticated and targeted threats.

In the current edition of the Barometer, developed with input from major companies such as Cisco, Rsa, SonicWall, Tim, and Google Cloud, the focus is on the evolving cyber threat landscape and priorities for investment and organizational measures. In particular, the survey examines the impacts resulting from the emergencies caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the increasing adoption of key technologies for digital transformation, such as cloud, supply chain platforms, OT (Operational Technology) and IoT (Internet of Things) environments, and 5G technology.

As in previous editions, a maturity model was developed in which each participating company was evaluated based on its practices related to cybersecurity technologies and processes in order to determine the sample’s level of security readiness. More details on these and other issues can be found in the Report presenting the survey results.

The “Cybersecurity Barometer” was conceived in 2017 by NetConsulting Cube, Eucacs (European Center for Advanced Cybersecurity) and InTheCyber with the main objective of providing a comprehensive view of cybersecurity-related policies, strategies, models and tools adopted by Italian companies. This initiative was initiated in response to the expansion of corporate perimeters, which exposes companies to increasing risks associated with increasingly sophisticated and targeted threats.

In the third edition of the Barometer, which was contributed by Rsa, the analysis was conducted through a questionnaire developed with the support and validation of an Advisory Board. The latter involved the chief security officers and an audit manager from five large Italian companies, as well as teams from Eucacs, NetConsulting Cube and InTheCyber.

The results obtained were used to place the surveyed companies within a Maturity Model, thus enabling a comparison of their degree of maturity in cybersecurity. This approach makes it possible to evaluate and compare the security practices adopted by each company in the panel.

Given the changing geopolitical environment and accelerating digital advancement, businesses and organizations are placing considerable emphasis on strategic planning and organizational security structure, as well as focusing on the adoption of recognition and protection solutions.

With this in mind, the Cybersecurity Barometer was established in 2017 with the aim of monitoring and presenting a comprehensive picture of the current situation of Italian companies regarding their policies, strategies, models and tools related to cyber protection. This initiative, designed by NetConsulting cube, Eucacs (European Center for Advanced Cybersecurity) and InTheCyber, aims to develop a Cybersecurity Maturity Model in which participating companies will be positioned to collect data.

The main themes of this report were identified in collaboration with an Advisory Board composed of Chief Security Officers (CSOs) and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) from leading companies in various industries. To date, the research involves 72 Italian companies, as well as government agencies at the local level and recognized public and private healthcare facilities, with the participation of Chief Security Officers (CSOs), Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and IT Managers.

The Cybersecurity Barometer 2017 turns out to be a relevant tool for understanding the national cybersecurity landscape. The recent Observatory led to the formulation of the Cybersecurity 4.0 Maturity Model. This model represents the current conditions of the companies involved, both in terms of their strategic management and the technological infrastructure at their disposal.
