An approach that involves reforming governance and security strategy
Levallois-Perret, June 19, 2019. Micropole, an international consulting and innovative technology group specializing in Digital Experience, Data Intelligence & Performance, Data Governance & Architecture, continues its development focused on innovation and added value, and launches Go Cloud and Security. This offering, which perfectly complements its existing data activities, is a response to the data protection and cyber-attack prevention needs of the group's customers, in a context where, according to IDC, 90% of French companies will have adopted several Public Cloud services and platforms by 2020.

Reform governance and security solutions in place
In a context of migration to the public cloud and rapid adoption of innovations (IoT, Machine Learning, Big Data...), companies are increasingly exposed to IT threats. The number of cyber attacks continues to grow significantly (+41% per year in France*), requiring a change in the security of information systems.
Companies need new governance, tools and services for security.
Micropole's Go Cloud & Security teams offer services adapted to current issues and challenges:
- Analysis of risks, vulnerabilities and IS compliance.

- Post-intrusion analysis (Forensic).

"The adoption of the public cloud is a strong trend within large companies that we have been supporting for years on all their data-related issues. Amplified by the multiplication of applications and data, this phenomenon represents a profound change that, if not managed properly, can quickly become problematic. Companies migrating to the public cloud often minimize the security of this new environment and the impact on their governance. Our role is to help them understand this strategic shift in its entirety so that they can gain a real competitive advantage," commented Christian Poyau, Chairman and CEO of Micropole Group.
