The 19th edition of Assises de la Sécurité, an indispensable meeting of cybersecurity experts, began in Monaco on 10 October. The event kicked off with an address by Patrice Cellario, Interior Minister, followed by an opening conference by Guillaume Poupard, General Director of the French National Agency for Security Information Systems (ANSSI).
With nearly 3,000 visitors and 160 partners representing the major technological trends of the sector, Assises 2019 allowed professionals to meet and discuss all things cyber for 3 days. Major topics discussed included Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) or the cloud which monitors the sovereignty and integrity of data.
For the second year, the Monaco Cyber Security Initiative allowed the Monaco Digital Security Agency (AMSN) and leaders in computer science, insurance and finance to be represented at the event.
Patrice Cellario wanted to stress how important it is for the Principality to be at the forefront of cybersecurity, armed to carry out the digital transition: “Today, the Principality has finalized the legal, legislative, regulatory and technical framework for a secure digital transition, according to commonly accepted standards (comparable to that of France and Europe)…. In this context and in this environment, the Principality of Monaco wants to demonstrate the exemplarity of a State that is changing, adapting and modernizing.”
