Local teams to protect Monaco data

Local teams to protect Monaco data

By Stephanie Horsman - October 14, 2019

Two Monegasque companies will be responsible for risk analysis and cybersecurity for the Principality of Monaco as it continues with its ambitious digital transition programme.

Monaco Digital and Egerie were presented last week as new partners of the Monegasque Digital Security Agency (AMSN) to assist with the launch of this year’s ‘Extended Monaco’ project.

Monaco Digital specialises in supporting businesses who are changing over from traditional to digital platforms. Formerly Monaco Informatique, the company relaunched under its new name last February with four locations in France and the Principality.

The second new partner, Egerie, is a cybersecurity software publisher, addressing the growing concerns in Monaco and worldwide about growing digital security risks.

The ‘Extended Monaco’ project is part of the Principality’s continued efforts to become amongst the most “Safe and sound” nations on the planet. As digital security is of paramount interest to both the state and the many companies operating here, these endeavours are taken extremely seriously.

“We chose the company Egerie, today in partnership with Monaco Digital, which offers the same coverage and the same collaborative tools to all the Monegasque structures,” said Dominique Riban, Director of the AMSN. “Plus they will be organsations using a robust methodology of cyber risk analysis and management, all the better so that information systems will be protected. The fact that the data analyses remain on Monegasque soil brings a guarantee of sovereignty.”
