I TELL YOU ABOUT THE GROTESQUE ATMOSPHERE OF THE CYBERSECURITY HEARING
Umberto RAPETTO Luglio 7, 2021
I state that I did not expect anything different. I’m vaccinated not only for the Covid-19. For many years I have the Green Pass for institutional indifference to certain issues and so I faced this experience in the most serene knowledge that it would not have served anything at all.
What I said (or rather “read”, given the seven chronometric minutes that I have been generously granted) – despite the severity of the observations, the causticity of the words and the tone certainly not genuflected – has slipped away, Accomplice the small number of present that was matched with the telematic absenteeism of those who could participate remotely.
The impermeability of what should have been my interlocutors respected the script that I had – without much effort – imagined. The question, apparently vital to any unwitting, was at great distances even from the most trivial, legitimate and perhaps dutiful curiosity.
Anticipating the absence of reactions of the audience, the questions – those that anyone should ask and ask themselves – I listed in a ruthless gust whose only din should have aroused uncontrollable jolts.
Leaving aside the unpleasant lack of respect for the four respondents in the hearing, manifested spending all the time sipping like bored teen-agers on smartphones and tablets, the seven minutes were spent in the granite imperturbability. The rapid pace of the 420 seconds available did not even allow those who spoke to ask those who should have listened to pay a shred of attention.
It would have been interesting if the shots of the live streaming, instead of the subject “audited”, had taken the small group of parliamentarians to show how devoutly they were listening to laconic interventions.
But this time there was not the lesson of the unforgettable Professor Beauzout, victim of impertinent students, but perhaps a small window on the future and therefore it would be worth adopting a different attitude.
After me, the other three speakers welcomed the creation of the Agency, said they are ready to contribute to the success of the initiative and cybersecurity of the country, reported to have already available operating models already tested and even cryptographic products (but what were they?).
At a certain point in the “discussion” the conclave even went so far as to speak of “antivirus”, reaching the climax of cultural orgasm, and I have surrendered composularly to the evidence of the irreparability of the situation.
One of the others summoned to the hearing, with a great sense of subordination and in an impetus worthy of the best Giandomenico Fracchia before Gianni Agus, wanted to paraphrase Neil Armstrong asserting that that of the new organism to protect cybernetic security was “a big step…”.
I am convinced that that little foot movement has only led to a metaphorically trampling a poop. Hopefully, as they say, it brings luck…
Personally Armstrong I would have bothered Louis, that of “All the time in the world”. I would have done so only to say that we, unlike the refrain of that song, do not have all the time in the world to run for cover.
