  • Now in its 5th edition, this year's event will take place online and will focus on how digital transformation and safety will play key roles in Europe’s recovery plan. The programme will also look at the need to strengthen technological sovereignty across Europe
  • Alessandro Profumo, CEO of Leonardo: “The Covid-19 crisis has further demonstrated the importance of new technologies to society. The digital transition must remain a top priority for Italy and Europe, where the implementation of the EU digital and data strategy is more important than ever. The security and defence industry has a significant role to play in the development of these technologies, which must embed security at their cores in order to ensure resilience and operational continuity”


CybertechLive Europe 2020, the international cyber security exhibition organised in collaboration with Leonardo, is ready to re-start. With the event’s usual two days of debates, conferences and face-to-face meetings postponed until to 2021, this year Cybertech Europe will take place on September 16th in a streamlined digital format, virtually bringing together thousands of participants and speakers from the worlds of government and industry. Key guests include Paola Pisano, Italy’s Minister for technological innovation and digitization, Alessandro Profumo, CEO of Leonardo, and Tommaso Profeta, the new Managing Director of Leonardo’s Cyber Security Division; Margaritis Schinas, Vice President of the European Commission and Roberto Baldoni, Deputy Director General of the Italian Security Intelligence Department (DIS).

The major topics being covered at the event will be digital transformation as a key part of the European recovery plan and the challenges and priorities of an industrial security strategy that aims to ensure cyber/digital resilience in the “new post-pandemic normal”. The programme will also focus on the need to strengthen technological sovereignty across Europe and the impetus for closer collaboration between governments and the security and cybersecurity industry. 

Alessandro Profumo, CEO of Leonardo, commented: “The Covid-19 crisis has further demonstrated the importance of new technologies to society. The digital transition must remain a top priority for Italy and Europe, where the implementation of the EU digital and data strategy is more important than ever. The security and defence industry has a significant role to play in the development of these technologies, which must embed security at their core in order to ensure resilience and operational continuity”.
