11th annual e-Crime & Cybersecurity France Congress

11th e-Crime & Cybersecurity France Congress
22nd March 2022, Paris

Under attack: how France is fighting back against cybercrime
Will plans to increase budgets and launch a new cyber centre help the private sector defend itself?

Cyber-attacks in France increased fourfold in 2020 and have continued in 2021. As Armed Forces minister Florence Parly, says: "If there is indeed a space where malevolence never sleeps, not even with one eye, a space where each of us can become the target, the vector, or even the amplifier of its threat, it is indeed cyber-space."

As if to emphasise those words, in the middle of last year, French President Emmanuel Macron changed his phone and phone number in light of allegations that Pegasus spyware might have targeted him, triggering an emergency meeting on cybersecurity at the Élysée Palace.

This followed a series of attacks on French hospitals which prompted Macron to call them “a crisis within a crisis” and to commit €1 billion to strengthen the cyber-security of sensitive systems. He also announced the creation of a new cyber defence centre and later added a commitment to spend an additional €500 million on security, including cybersecurity.

Attacks have continued to hit key French sites and businesses, with breaches at the French government’s ‘France-Visas’ website, which contains the personal data of visa applicants hoping to visit or emigrate to France, and also the Asian businesses of French insurer AXA.

Attackers have ranged from “mafia groups” operating in eastern Europe, to Russian and Chinese-linked threat actors.

Can government, solution providers and private companies collaborate to solve this problem?

The government has adopted both an offensive and defensive stance and has also invested heavily in collaboration. Later this year, a new cybersecurity centre in Paris’s financial district comes online. Owned by 60 different entities operating in cybersecurity, it will host 1,500 researchers and people working for private companies and the government.

Part of the centre’s goal is to triple the annual sales of French cybersecurity companies to €€25 billion in 2025 from €7.3 billion in 2019, and double the number of jobs in the sector by 2025. But it is also designed to deliver advanced protection for both public and private sectors.

In the meantime though, what can CISOs do about the burgeoning threatscape?

The e-Crime & Cybersecurity France Congress will look at how we all need a new kind of security. Join our real-life case studies and in-depth technical sessions from the security and privacy teams at some of the world’s most admired brands.

  • Building better Cloud governance

    • Migrating to the Cloud is a priority
    • But, if not properly managed, cloud migrations result in extra complexity and risk
    • How can firms efficiently assess cloud readiness, plan and execute migrations, and establish comprehensive cloud governance?
  • From smart machines to smart cities - securing the IoT

    • How long will it be before every significant device and location is part of an ecosystem of sensors connected to public and private networks?
    • Driving apps tell insurers what premiums to charge. Packaging machines report their own breakdowns.
    • But are these devices visible on your network and how are you securing them?
  • Cybersecurity for business resilience

    • Forced, rapid digitalisation has revealed the fragmented nature of many security programmes
    • Protecting the business while enabling innovation and flexibility requires new models and approaches for cyber
    • Are automation and orchestration the answer?
  • Closing the cybersecurity skills gap

    • Increased regulation and a sharp rise in attacks and incidents mean security budgets are on the increase.
    • However, CISOs may find themselves struggling to buy the resource they need most: skilled cybersecurity staff
    • So, how are companies hiring and retaining talent? And which technologies can bridge the gaps?
  • Too little time for implementation?

    • As cyber threats have multiplied, the time CISOs have to choose, buy and implement security solutions has fallen sharply
    • But it has never been more critical to make the right choice
    • So how can cybersecurity professionals change their RFP and POC processes while maintaining quality?
  • Securing the citizen

    • The COVID era demands unprecendented levels of citizen engagement.
    • The systems required to provide safety create a huge data security and privacy challenge for both governments and employers.
    • Are compromises inevitable? Can solution providers help?
  • Can zero trust be done?

    • Zero Trust/ZTNA/SASE - they promise solutions to the key problems CISOs face today.
    • But how realistic are they? Do they take into account existing legacy technology, and the ways in which real companies actually do business day-to-day?
    • Can you explain how a real-world implementation works?
  • Are criminals winning the ransomware war?

    • Ransomware tests every part of your infrastructure, from awareness to endpoint protection to patching to phishing defences
    • Some attacks are sophisticated, but most rely on traditional methods and vectors
    • So why is it so hard to beat them? Is AI or zero trust or something else the answer?
  • Moving to Cloud Native?

    • Applications have become increasingly complex, with users demanding more and more.
    • They expect rapid responsiveness, innovative features, and zero downtime.
    • Performance problems are no longer acceptable - they'll easily move to your competitor.
    • Should you go Cloud Native?
  • Re-engineering the SOC: from logs to automated XDR

    • Does anybody really look at all their logs?
    • Data and alert overload have been the Achilles Heel of the SOC team and they constitute a broader failing in many security architectures.
    • What companies need is systems that can process this data into actionable insights. Can XDR help?
  • Securing digital currencies

    • The move towards cashless payment methods during the crisis has been extreme, and looks irreversible.
    • Many more governments are now looking at developing their own digital currencies.
    • How do we go about securing a world in which most - perhaps all - payments are digital?
  • Building-in security: from DevOps to SecDevOps?

    • As companies ramp up digital business models it is crucial that they build security in from the start.
    • But that is a big ask. And even before the crisis, security teams found it hard to gain leverage over the business.
    • How can cybersecurity teams help? Is this a CIO vs CISO battle?
