  • Earthquakes in Italy, 2016, An impact summary (PDF, 1.02mb)

    On 24 August 2016, a magnitude 6.2 earthquake hit the Apennines
    Mountains in central Italy, devastating the small towns of Amatrice,
    Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto. At the time of writing, 293 lives were
    lost. This is the latest in a series of heavy earthquakes to hit Italy in recent years. The country is particularly exposed to earthquake risk as it is located where continental plates collide and building stock is vulnerable. Yet just over 1% of residential buildings are insured against earthquakes. How can Italy and its residents better prepare for future events?

  • Terremoto in Italia, 2016, Un riepilogo d’impatto (PDF, 5.84mb)

    20 May 2017

    Il 24 agosto 2016, un terremoto di magnitudo 6,2 ha colpito gli Appennini nel centro Italia devastando le cittadine di Amatrice, Accumoli e Pescara del Tronto. Il 26 ottobre, due scosse di assestamento di magnitudo 5,5 e 6,1 hanno colpito Visso, a nord di Amatrice. Il 30 ottobre, una scossa di magnitudo 6,6 ha colpito Norcia, un comune fra Amatrice e Visso. Quest’ultimo è stato il terremoto di maggiore intensità a colpire l’Italia dal 1980 ed il tremore è stato avvertito in quasi tutto il Paese. Nel complesso, ci sono state 299 vittime. Questa è stata l’ultima di una serie di terremoti disastrosi verificatisi in Italia negli ultimi anni. Il Paese è particolarmente soggetto al rischio sismico in quanto e situato in una zona in cui le placche continentali entrano in collisione ed il patrimonio edilizio è vulnerabile. Eppure, poco più dell’1% degli edifici residenziali è assicurato contro i terremoti. Come possono l’Italia ed i suoi abitanti prepararsi ad affrontare meglio gli eventi futuri?

As a result, the issue of cyber protection is rising up the corporate agenda, at both large and small
    companies.

  • Cyber liability: Data breach in Europe (PDF, 3.59mb)

    08 March 2017

    This publication written by Elena Jelmini Cellerini and Christian Lang looks at the consequences of a data breach in Europe
    and compares the situations in Europe and the US with regard to the
    major features of such an event. It provides a snapshot of where the
    discussion stands at the beginning of 2017, about one and a half years
    before the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
    will come into force. Watching the case law developing, in particular in
    the UK which has taken some landmark decisions in this area, is also
    an indicator for where Europe seems to be heading. The UK intends to
    implement the GDPR in spite of Brexit.
