Hackers also attack industrial information systems.
With the increase in attacks such as ransomware, denial of service or personal data theft, the security of information systems has become a major issue in France. Attacks on information systems (cyber crime) have steadily increased, resulting in operational losses or even the destruction of industrial tools, in addition to the theft of technological information.
Under the impetus of the National Cybersecurity Agency of France (ANSSI), the government has issued recommendations via security directives, in the MPL (Military Planning Law) and various white papers related to domestic security.
These recommendations are primarily intended for Operators of Vital Importance, but also cover Operators of Essential Services through the European Directive on the security of Network and Information Systems (NIS).
Cybersecurity must also take into account the protection of personal data as demanded by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force in 2018.
