Thales turns the spotlight onto cybersecurity challenges in the daily lives of members of organisations and citizens during a dedicated event: the Thales Media Day





Since 2019, the cost of cybercrime for the global economy has more than doubled and there has been a fourfold increase in the number of cyberattacks. The level of cyber risk has never been higher.

During its third Thales Media Day on Tuesday 31 May 2022 hosted in Paris, Thales will provide practical, real-world examples that illustrate the key benefits of cybersecurity in the daily routine of organisations and individual citizens in areas as diverse as digital identity, critical infrastructure, mobility, healthcare, space, remote working and defence.

Guillaume Poupard, Director General of the ANSSI, France's National Agency for Information System Security and Patrice Caine, Chairman & CEO of Thales, will speak at the Thales Media Day, which will be both an online and in-person event.

In the last 12 months, the number of cyberattacks and ransomware incidents has increased by 150%1 due to the combined effect of the pandemic and the increasingly rapid digitalisation of our societies. These types of threats are constantly evolving as digital services become an integral part of our daily lives.

As the European leader in cybersecurity and a global leader in data protection, Thales provides world-class security expertise to governments, businesses and critical national infrastructure providers to protect their critical infrastructure and support their digital transformation. After the success of previous Thales Media Days, Thales is organising a third edition on the theme:

Cybersecurity: new threats, new challenges

Thales has 6 operational cybersecurity centers operating 24/7 around the world and over 3,500 engineers specialising in critical information systems and cybersecurity, who work tirelessly every day to guarantee data integrity and confidentiality, system security and network resilience, and to provide comprehensive protection of national sovereign interests.

This Thales Media Day will be an opportunity to understand the complexity of the technologies involved and how they are used in practice. The programme includes five round table sessions with Thales experts and outside speakers, and 10 demonstrations and instructional sessions designed specifically for the event. The purpose of the Thales Media Day is to provide a complete overview of the global cyber threat landscape and the countermeasures offered by Thales.

On Tuesday, May 31st, Thales will showcase some of the applications of its solutions and technologies in the areas of identification and governance, instruction and training, detection and response, and data protection. As a systems integrator, Thales offers a complete range of solutions and services including security consulting and auditing, data protection, digital trust management, cyber secure system design, integration, certification and lifecycle support, cyber threat detection, intrusion detection and security supervision. Thales brings to the table extensive knowledge and expertise to the current cyber risk landscape based on its experience with a hundred major customers worldwide, including 18 of the world's 20 largest banks and 9 of the top 10 internet giants.

The Group will provide concrete examples of how its cybersecurity technologies are implemented in a range of different environments, including a port facility, a factory, a satellite system and an aircraft. As well as demonstrations of future products and solutions, a series of round table sessions will bring together high-level specialists from the European Space Agency, Google Cloud, ABI Research, Renault, the NDEC Technology Hub from Wales, French company DIATEAM, Chimere by Thales, ERCOM and many experts from Thales.

The round table sessions will focus on the following topics:

How do we ensure cyber sovereignty for Europe?

Do we have the right technology today to protect cyberspace?

How does cybersecurity enable citizens to act securely in their daily lives?

How can companies protect both customer and employee data?

How can cybersecurity shape sustainable mobility?

Ten demonstrations highlighting innovations in digital identity, critical infrastructure, mobility and remote working:
