Leonardo and Partners to Supply Security Services to Italian Public Offices

The Consortium of companies led by Leonardo - Finmeccanica, through Consip has won the tender for the supply of digital security services to the Italian Public Offices. The total value of the tender is EUR 600 million. The work-share for Leonardo, agent for the consortium of companies including IBM Italia and Fastweb, amounts to approximately EUR 250 million. Leonardo will play a central role in all phases of the project, considering that security is key to transactions with the Public Offices in guaranteeing data integrity and authenticity. The contract refers to Lot 2 of the framework agreement, sub-divided into 4 Lots, relative to cloud computing services, security, the creation of portals and online services and application cooperation for Public Administrations (PA). The supply of Lot 2 refers to "Digital identity and application security services", divided into two areas of activity. Specifically, one area refers to services for the prevention and management of IT accidents and the analysis of the vulnerabilities of hardware and software components of PA IT systems, applicable in centralized and shared cloud environments as well as single administrations. A second area refers to a broad series of services and tools supporting PA digital identity management, including electronic signature and stamps for validating, storing and guaranteeing conformity and legal validity of electronic documents and from digital copy. The services can be issued centrally or at the headquarters of the administrations providing them based on the type of service and the choices of the various PAs; the agreement is an important step towards standardizing and harmonizing digital security in PA, an essential condition for offering uniform security levels and improving citizen data protection.

Iliad In Exclusive Talks Over Wind, 3 Italia Assets

VimpelCom Ltd. (NasdaqGS:VIP) and CK Hutchison CK Hutchison Holdings Limited (SEHK:1) have entered into exclusive talks with Iliad SA (ENXTPA:ILD) over the possibility of acquiring Italian frequencies and infrastructure assets and setting up a fourth mobile operator in the country, according to two unnamed sources cited by Reuters. Previous reports have indicated that Wind and 3 Italia S.p.A., have offered to sell assets including 8,000 network sites, frequencies and a roaming deal in a bid to convince EC regulators to approve their proposed merger. The European Commission will now decide whether Iliad can compete effectively with the other three network operators, including Telecom Italia S.p.A. (BIT:TIT). Fastweb Spa has also confirmed its interest in the assets and has reportedly raised its mobile coverage proposal to 100% of Italy’s territory by 2020 in a bid to persuade regulators. The EC’s anti-trust authority is due to issue its decision on the merger on September 8, 2016, but one of the sources said Hutchison and VimpelCom may be told of its decision by the end of the week.
