Why this union between your two associations?
Coralie Héritier: It has been some time since the two associations have been wondering about how to have a stronger impact, more and more in the areas of cyber security and digital trust. In addition, we share the same values of excellence and quality with certified members. This combination also reflects the reality of the market with the indispensable development of the cloud of trust related to the outsourcing of IT services and security. Finally, we are two companies, IDNomic and Deny Everything to be lived in both associations. The rapprochement made and elsewhere the discussion was natural and fast.
What are the contours and ambitions of the new entity?
C.H .: Today, you have 55 members and this size will allow us to combine our means to bring "the good word" to the market. Our goal is really to create new repositories and to be force of proposal. Regarding governance, we keep working groups on both sides. We also found three colleges: Cybersecurity / Cloud of Trust / Ecosystem. To belong to the first two, the membership criteria are strict. The company applying must be in the process of qualification or be certified (for Cyber College) or have service criteria (Cloud College Trust). Ecosystem College aims to facilitate sharing and exchange between different market players. And also to meet the end users.
What are the highlights of the association besides the Circle of Security on April 12th?
C.H: Among the appointments, there is the Independence Day of the Cloud, June 5, the Summer University in September and of course Les Assises de la Sécurité from October 10 to 13 in Monaco. It will be the high point for our association, our biggest event.
