Palermo, in Confcommercio the debate on digital transformation as the key to the rebirth of the South

Digitalisation: Italy ranks 18th among the 27 EU members, according to DESI, the European Commission’s assessment tool that measures progress in the field of digitalisation of the economy and society in the Old Continent. This result is affected by the lack of basic digital skills among citizens and companies: only 60% of Italian SMEs have reached a basic level of digital intensity.

Yet digital transformation continues to be the only way to improve the economic and social fabric, especially in the South of the country, as underlined by the event “Digital Transformation in the company, for a change of pace between protections and opportunities”, which will be held in Palermo on 18 June at 10.30 am at the Confcommercio headquarters, in the Sala Consiglio in Via E.Amari, 11.

The event organized and promoted by Global Thinking Foundation will see the participation of institutions, the business world and professionals. «Digital security and therefore cyber security is a crucial issue in corporate governance and is also linked to a concept of shared social responsibility. In fact, companies are also responsible towards their workers and should protect them from cyber attacks and cyber violence. This will be a topic that we will explore in depth on the basis of the data and experiences collected in the area and at a European level, certain of a debate that will be profitable for all entrepreneurs and male and female workers”, declared Claudia Segre, President of the Global Thinking Foundation , who will moderate the event.
