While the International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC) to which the mission will converge as of today was not yet started, strategic meetings with leading French players in the cybersecurity ecosystem took place all day in Paris.
During a morning of presentations and private meetings at the Quebec Government Office in Paris, we had the chance to meet and meet with representatives of the French Ministry of the Interior, Thales, CGI, the Group Atos, from OnePoint, from the CAE TechList Technological Research Institute, from the Systematic competitiveness cluster and from the Paris Region attractiveness agency.
Additional meetings with representatives of various groups also opening up to cybersecurity in the French State, as well as a very informative visit to Station F, the largest Start-up accelerator in Europe, completed a good first day!
As of today, Tuesday, we are in Lille to attend the FIC and a myriad of events on the outskirts. We will give you the details soon!
