7th e-Crime & Cybersecurity Paris, 11th April 2018
"If I were to give one piece of advice it is this: decision-makers, cybersecurity is your business. You have to look at it and ask questions about the risks and the threats,”Guillaume Poupard, Director General, l’Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information (ANSSI)
2017 has been a tipping point in French cybersecurity. As elsewhere, ransomware attacks hit high-profile companies, such as Renault, Paribas and Air France.
The Bank of France has warned recently of an explosion of emails and telephone calls falsely attributed to the country's central bank, as criminals use phishing attacks including the Bank of France's name, logo, and also phone numbers and email addresses that are similar to its own.
And Guillaume Poupard, head of national cybersecurity agency ANSSI, has warned that the world is heading towards 'permanent cyber war’.
That’s the "F.U.D".
At the same time, CISOs face difficult, practical challenges. If organised criminals have access to nation-state level exploits, who is safe and what solutions make sense?
How can the current threat landscape be translated into a risk management framework – that is, how can security professionals assign probabilities of loss to cybercrime that allow boards to set budgets and risk appetites?
And how can companies combine human and cultural initiatives with technological solutions to create a holistic cybersecurity defence?
That’s the challenge.
The 7th e-Crime Cybersecurity France will cover these and other key subjects for its audience of professionals tasked with safeguarding digital assets and sensitive data. There will be real-life case studies, strategic talks and technical break-out sessions. It will provide an opportunity for local firms to compare domestic solutions with international best cyber-security practice while networking with industry peers, suppliers and law enforcement.
