We just came back from the 1st Italian Conference on CyberSecurity (ITASEC 2017) where we presented Julia’s results on OWASP Benchmark during the demo sessions. The event, organized for the first time in Venice, gathered under one roof more than 500 attendees mixing together industry, academia, and public institutions. A unique opportunity to discuss cybersecurity in the Italian community! Around 80 people attended our session, and we got a lot of interesting questions and follow ups.
During the conference, several panels and keynote talks introduced the main open topics in the field of cybersecurity. Cyberwarfare, the need of security experts, the actions taken by Italian police to prevent cybercrime are few of the many topics covered during the 3 days in Venice. In addition, the technical and demo sessions provided an exhaustive overview of the state-of-the-art. Last but not least, an amazing dinner at Hotel Monaco, a fantastic venue nearby San Marco square. Looking forward to ITASEC 18 in Milan!
