Marco Ciappelli has a Doctorate in Political Science with a Specialization in Sociology of Communication from the University of Florence Cesare Alfieri. His career started in advertising in the mid-90s. He has since been consulting on branding and marketing strategies for companies of all sizes and various industries. With clear sociological and psychological repercussions on our way of life and inevitable connection with information security and data privacy, he realized a platform to allow and drive conversations outside the realm of traditional tech to tech talk was needed. His goal with ITSPmagazine is to educate by telling meaningful stories at the intersection of technology, cybersecurity, and society; and, when possible, to positively impact people’s lives and society as a whole.
