Information and Telecommunication are being used by the majority of the world’s population. This has lead people to better connected with one another, also it has better informed people around the world what is currently happening. This is all through technology and the massive advancements in it. But because of these advancements a concerning issue has arisen, the security of the information.
Developments in the international arena that stem in large part from rapid technological and commercial developments in information and communications technology (ICT) that have ushered in an "Information Age" (or a "Networking Age"). Although political and strategic factors have also had an impact, the information revolution has a number of security implications.
Italy believes that there are such security implications as; It has become increasingly harder to impose control on the media to which citizens are exposed to. The exploitation of advanced technologies to develop new doctrines, organisations and modes of war that allow conventional armed forces to be smaller, more lethal, operate at a higher tempo and to react more rapidly over long distances. Lastly the increase in internet crimes and information terrorism.
Italy emphasizes that the network age solutions will not be top down and not mediated through one single authority. Nor will solutions come primarily from governments. Rather, action needs to be taken on a variety of levels, by a variety of actors.
Italy has taken some steps to increase peace, firstly Italy has built new more trustworthy systems using new technologies and improved standards. Secondly passing and enforcing improved legislation on information crime - though with due regard for civil liberties and cultural differences. Lastly improving education and ethics of users of ICT in order to make information assurance a societal responsibility. By using these methods peace can come from technology.
