Back in the 1970s-80s were the peak of the computer wars in cybernetic space, which affects our lives, our economy, even international relations and war, deeply, often without our thinking about it. By virtue of “national cybernetics security", the Italian State has decided to protect its critical (public and private) operators.

Last November 13th the Italian Parliament finally approved Law Decree No. 105/2019, which significantly extends the scope of application of the Italian “golden powers” regulations, amending Law Decree No. 21/2012.

The Decree extends the Italian Government's golden powers to high-tech intensive industries in order to allow the Government to verify whether any danger is posed to national security or public order related to the vulnerability of networks, systems or services.
