Cyber Security

Cyber space is increasingly a point of strategic competition at all levels. Its low-cost accessibility and pervasive nature make it a breeding ground for thefts of sensitive information and cybercrime. The main threat originating in virtual space targets the security of industrial potential in the form of scientific, technological and company know-how, with inevitable repercussions on the social and economic health of countries.


Safeguarding security from cyber threats involves finding the right balance between business priorities, risk management, incident handling and productivity requirements via “managed security services”.


Leonardo provides managed security services via its Security Operation Centre (SOC) in Chieti. The Chieti facility also added a CSIRT (Computer Security Incident Response Team) in 2015, expanding the expertise and intervention range.

With the SOC/CSIRT structure, the Chieti facility of the Security and Information Systems division of Leonardo became one of the most advanced MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider) centres of excellence at European and international level, both in terms of service variety and number of customers served.


The unit has numerous security experts and certified ethical hackers specialised in Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Test activities, which cover the entire life cycle of the attack, starting from the threat prediction stage to the remediation stage, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
