In this day and age cybercrimes like phishing, ransomware and viruses are on the rise, with attacks targeting individuals alongside companies and public administrations. According to the ANSSI (French National Agency for Information Systems Security), in 2021 1082 intrusions into information systems were recorded, 37% more than in 2020 (786 intrusions). And according to the 7th edition of the CESIN (an organisation of experts in Information and Digital Security), more than one out of two companies declares having suffered between one or three cyber-attacks in 2021.
Today, data security has become an absolute priority for all companies in all sectors. But how can you be sure that the service provider you have chosen are doing everything possible to protect your data? The answer is the SecNumCloud label, a qualification offered by the ANSSI to enable cloud service providers to prove that they offer one of the highest levels of security on the market and that they comply with good data protection practices. In addition, this qualification is in line with the requirements of Vitality Organisations (VIOs).
