Raising the level of cybersecurity in France and Europe

To support organisations in the face of cyber risks, ANSSI has launched a new risk analysis method named ‘EBIOS Risk Manager’: an innovative, collaborative and practical approach, which is suited to new digital security challenges. « This method makes digital security a strategic and operational challenge and is part of a collective, forward-looking approach aimed at raising the level of cybersecurity in French and European organisations. » states Guillaume Poupard, Director General of ANSSI.

Tooling the method

ANSSI wanted software publishers to equip the new EBIOS method with tools. EGERIE, France’s leading cyber risk management company, decided to work alongside the agency. It is now the first company to have received this certification, which was awarded on ANSSI’s 10th anniversary.

We have been engaged in cyber risk management for years. We have developed agile, collaborative, intuitive and dynamic solutions that meet the needs of end users and we needed official support and recognition from ANSSI. This certification should give more visibility to trustworthy solutions available on the market and encourage ownership of the method, as well as the risk-based management approach.

Jean Larroumets, Chairman and founder of EGERIE

EGERIE confirms the need to develop secure-by-design solutions while meeting European requirements concerning the protection of personal data. The SME therefore provides its EGERIE Risk Manager-certified solution to mobilise companies, from regulatory compliance to the deployment of optimised cyber risk governance through a “cyberdynamic” risk management and re-evaluation process.

Management of subcontractors and the ecosystem: a key point of EGERIE Risk Manager

The issue of subcontractors, which has been overlooked for too long, must be rapidly taken into consideration. Subcontracting chains must be better protected, from end to end. This is what we offer in concrete terms with this new solution.

With the support and trust of big names, such as the Ministry of the Armies, the Port of Marseille, hospitals, major groups listed on the CAC 40, and key players in the banking and insurance industries, in France and Europe, EGERIE continues to grow and develop its business. Thanks to double-digit growth in turnover, and capital currently being raised, EGERIE plans to strengthen its management, sales and technical teams, and continue its R&D investments, which are currently worth more than 4 million euros.

The SME also plans to expand its influence in Europe. This certification, which comes as recognition and a reflection of its efforts « Highlights our expertise, which will now shine throughout Europe, thanks to this boost from ANSSI, and open up new possibilities for us ! » concludes Jean Larroumets.
