Tunisia, Italy Sign MoU on Cybersecurity

ROME: Tunisia and Italy will cooperate on cybersecurity under a memorandum of understanding signed in Tunis on Thursday.

The MoU between Tunisia’s National Cybersecurity Agency and the Italian National Cybersecurity Agency aims “to establish continuous and strong cooperation in the field of cybersecurity, as well as in digital trust services,” Bruno Frattasi, general director of the Italian agency, told Arab News.

He signed the document with his Tunisian counterpart Yacine Djemaiel during a ceremony at the Ministry of Communication Technologies. Tunisian Minister of Communication Technologies Nizar Ben Neji attended the ceremony.

The MoU’s objective is to strengthen the exchange of experience and expertise between the two national institutions, and the development of specialized skills in the field of cybersecurity.

“The common challenges we face, and the transnational nature of cyber threats, pushed Italy and Tunisia to strengthen their cooperation in this important field,” said Frattasi.

“I believe that this agreement with Tunisia is strategic for Italy as it represents an important step to strengthen the security of cyberspace in the Mediterranean area.”
