Co-founder, Creative Director, ITSPmagazine
Marco Ciappelli is the co-founder and Creative Director at ITSPmagazine. Upon completing his PhD in Political Science with a Specialization in Sociology of Communication at the University of Florence Cesare Alfieri, Marco started working in branding, marketing and advertising. Since his move to Los Angeles in 2000, he has been consulting for online brands across a wide variety of industries.
With the advent and evolution of Social Media, Online Marketing, IoT the jobs became much more exciting, and interesting – not only for the new marketing opportunities that it created, but also for the strong, direct impact that technology started to have on individuals, business and society; the sociological and psychological repercussions on our way of life, and the inevitable connection with information security and data privacy.
Marco thought that a platform to allow and drive conversations outside the realm of the traditional tech to tech talk was needed.
His goal with ITSPmagazine is to tell meaningful stories at the intersection of technology, cybersecurity, and society; and when possible, to have a positive impact on people’s life and our society as a whole.
