International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) 2018

We are again partner of the FIC with this year’s theme “Hyperconnection : the resilience challenge“. We will showcase several topics like Cyber Threat Intelligence and will hold live demos of Orion Malware and CyberRange at our stand.

We will also hold different sessions during this two-day event:

Plenary Session: Cyber Resilience: Fantasy or Reality?


Markus Braendle, Head of Airbus CyberSecurity
Tuesday, 23rdJanuary from 9:00-11:30am

Hyperconnection is here, connected objects are multiplying and artificial intelligence is moving forward. Cybersecurity is no longer “just” about securing information networks and systems. It now involves the resilience of societies and how a society functions when it takes a systemic hit. Since it is impossible to do away with risks completely, the goal is to ensure that essential operations remain up and running in a crisis situation. To enable ourselves to “ride the waves,” to paraphrase French neuropsychiatrist Boris Cyrulnik, we must not limit ourselves to improving our capabilities in terms of “rectifying” or “recovering.” We must design and implement devices more capable of withstanding any blows they might be dealt, by their very design. Is this a matter of fantasy or reality? Operational resilience must be taken beyond theory and put into practice through specific human, technological and organisational efforts. How can human factors and “user” risk be managed? How can cyber risks best be incorporated into business continuity plans? Will the development of artificial intelligence lead to the design of self-adaptive systems able to automatically reset when they undergo attacks and become “smarter” of their own accord?

Workshop: Cyber Threat Intelligence: What is its Real Added Value?

Alexandre Picard, Head of Cyber Threat Intelligence
Tuesday, 23rd January from 11:30-12:30pm

Cyber Threat Intelligence seems to be the new miracle remedy against the lopsided struggle between aggressor and defender. Based both on the analysis and characterization of past attacks and the direct monitoring of potential attackers, it can be used on an operational level to improve detection capacities, on a tactical level to adjust defense mechanisms, and on a strategic level to anticipate the evolution of threats and their impact on the organization. However, beyond theory and marketing strategies, what is Cyber Threat Intelligence’s real contribution in terms of security operations, problem solving and IT security governance? After all the promises and disillusionment, is CTI maturing?

Conference: Threat Intelligence and Reverse – Knowledge and Follow-up of the Threat

Grégory Baudeau, Julien Ménissez, Alexandre Buirette-Carle
Tuesday, 23rd January from 2:15-3:00pm

Our threat Intelligence and reverse engineering teams from Airbus CyberSecurity introduce their methods to prevent the threat : from hunting in the wild to profiling the attacker. How our teams work together to perform technical analysis, capitalize and disseminate information.

Innovative SME Award

We will also celebrate this year the 5th edition of the Innovative SME Award, rewarding a particularly innovative SME in the cyber security field. The winners of this year’s edition are Sqreen and Alsid. The trophy will be awarded during the FIC by Frédéric Julhes, president of the jury. Read the full press release (in French) here.
