“I am a great supporter of a future that brings together the best of both worlds”, presence and smart working. This is the mix proposed by Vittorio Colao, Minister for Technological Innovation and Digital Transition, speaking at the Trento Economy Festival, questioned about the future of work, between a return to the past in presence or a future in smart working. Colao thinks of “a mixed form, We must enable the legal and also cultural framework that will take the best of face-to-face work and smart working. In this sense we are also stimulating companies, universities, public enterprises to put together the best of two worlds “. “We are going towards a mixed work model, without the anguish of going to work very early or not being able to manage the family. But we must not forget the need and the importance of socializing and mentoring towards young people”, he explains. Colao. “Certain things we will not do anymore. I confess that I went to Hong Kong for a dinner and if I think about the footprint of that dinner … A nonsense that we will not do anymore.” Public administration is not in safe conditions. Here no one is safe and we cannot go on like this, we need more secure clouds so that the sensitive data of citizens and the less sensitive ones are kept safe “. “We need to go to the cloud with the creation of the National Strategic Pole,” he says. And “the coach state expects all companies to give their proposals by June to create a secure and redundant national hub whose encryption access keys are in public control and where we can have the advantages of being safe with our own. We will also classify commercial data and cloud layers which, if used, will need to be certified. A safe world on both the commercial and non-commercial side, “he adds.
