As part of the cybersecurity conference in Munich, Franck Gicquel, director of partnerships at Cybermalveillance.gouv.fr, unveils a cybersecurity training label.
JDN. For what purpose is Cybermalveillance launching a repository of cybersecurity skills?
Frank Gickel. We are launching this label together with our AFNOR partners, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine (C3NA) Regional Cybersecurity and Digital Trust Campus and the ANSSI Training Center (CFSSI), with the aim of helping service providers train homogeneously. Therefore, the repository is freely accessible, the goal is to help as many service providers as possible to improve their cybersecurity skills.
Will this label indirectly help small communities, SMEs and VSEs?
Yes, it is also his long-term goal. This label will provide small communities and SMEs / VSEs with a better understanding of the cybersecurity market, which is a very dense market and has a large number of players. Institutions unfamiliar with cybersecurity issues can quickly get lost. The main function of this label is to standardize computer training, but without replacing training institutes. It is like a book that serves as the basis for the teacher’s teaching.
Cyber surveillance consists of how many members?
We form a GIP (Public Interest Group) and have 15 full-time staff. But we have 56 members who are institutions and companies. These members lend us material or manpower so that we can fulfill our mission.
Are you also looking for a less regionalized cybersecurity?
Yes, this issue is very important to us, cybersecurity must be present throughout the national territory. The vast majority of cybersecurity companies and start-ups are concentrated in the Ile-de-France, while the needs are widespread throughout the national territory. For example, we are proud that of the 200 IT experts we label, only 20% are members of the IDF. The rest is present in the regions to help the actors of these areas. We also try to raise awareness of VSE, PMI and ETI by teaching without overloading our interlocutors with too much technology. For example, last year we managed 175,000 cybercrime victim paths, and most of these cybercrime acts could have been stopped thanks to prevention.
