Vodafone, Italian police renew cybercrime agreement

Friday 30 January 2015 | 09:37 CET | News
Vodafone Italia has renewed its cooperation agreement with the Italian state police aimed at preventing and combating cyber attacks on the operator's critical services. Under the terms of the new deal, the institutions will work together to exchange information, with monitoring activity carried out by the CNAIPIC, Italy's cybercrime unit responsible for protecting the country's critical IT infrastructure. The new initiative builds on the initial cooperation agreement signed on 20 January 2010, which had a positive effect on preventing cyber crimes against Vodafone Italia, said the operator.
