Analytica for intelligence and security studies and Affidaty S.p.A. are two Italian companies with different purposes and activities. The former focuses on implementing national and international debates on security and its various issues, while the latter is an Italian technology provider that created T.R.I.N.C.I.®, an open-source blockchain focused on the enterprise world that aims to facilitate value exchanges between individuals, companies, IoT systems, and the world of financial services.
However, there is a common interest between the two companies in many thematic areas, including cybersecurity, the development of new technologies, the Digital & ICT sector, and especially blockchain technology.
These reasons led to a stable collaboration between Analytica and Affidaty to offer the market a better value proposition and achieve mutual benefits while respecting the identities and values of both companies.
The first major pillars of this partnership have been defined, and they will be further structured and expanded during the three years of partnership.
One of the first activities will be the provision of a high-level training course in Cybersecurity and blockchain by Analytica. The course will include an integration course on Blockchain programming and T.R.I.N.C.I.®, the open-source framework by Affidaty S.p.A for building purpose blockchains, smart contracts, digital assets, and NFTs.
The course will be available through Hdemy, the e-learning platform developed by Affidaty, and can be followed online through pre-loaded lessons.
Analytica will analyze the main issues related to cybersecurity in light of the modern challenges of data and information security in the digital transition. The course will last about ten hours, only for the cybersecurity part, and will focus on interacting with students to develop not only classic learning but also critical reasoning on cybersecurity issues.
The course will have reduced fees for individuals linked to both companies and will be disseminated through their respective networks. The course will host 10 participants per provision and will be oriented towards young professionals, university students in the final phase of their studies, professionals in the sector, as well as related thematic areas.
Other areas of collaboration will be the management of human resources of excellence and the facilitation of membership. Both parties will endeavor to establish an observatory on European and national tenders, on which they will work on different phases of the projects, with the aim of generating economic and reputational advantages.
Both parties are convinced that they can contribute to the growth and improvement of the partner, as well as aware of the new opportunities that arise thanks to the added value of the counterpart. We recommend that all potential interested parties follow the two companies closely on their official channels to receive updates on the evolution and concretization of these proposals, as well as other joint projects that are useful for the development of added value in cybersecurity, technological innovation, and national security.
Dr. Denise Serangelo, President and Founder of Analytica:
“Finding companies and entities willing to take on the challenge of relating to a think tank that deals with security was not easy. The different nature and divergent objectives often proved to be insurmountable obstacles, but the Affidaty team was able to look at opportunities rather than differences by coordinating with our working group and creating a fundamental synergy in achieving the intended result: a partnership that looked to the future and innovation, aimed at young people and institutions, and promoting professionalism and high-level content.
Analytica looks upon this partnership with great satisfaction and pride and hopes that it can serve as a paradigm for many other organizations that wish to approach think tanks to develop new ideas and address new security issues that a rapidly changing world requires us to observe.
Dr. Niccolò Quattrini, Head of Institutional Relations and Policies at Affidaty S.p.A.:
“We are very pleased with the partnership established with Analytica. The training courses that will be offered in collaboration between our organizations through the Hdemy Blockchain aim to educate students, making them completely autonomous in harnessing the enormous potential of the T.R.I.N.C.I. 2.0 blockchain.
The main mission is to look beyond and prepare future developers for the new business scenarios that blockchain, as a disruptive and innovative technology, has begun to sow.
Currently, institutions are very sensitive to the topic and are supportive of educational projects that facilitate the digital transition and the evolution of new professional figures. Therefore, it is even more of a pleasure to get to work.”
