As a leading scientific research institute with strong ties to industry, we leverage both in-depth theoretical knowledge and concrete innovation capabilities to match rapid advances in cyberthreats and on-the-ground digital systems reality.
Cybersecurity is a key enabler of digital transformation; it is also vital to autonomy and peace in cyberspace. Today’s sprawling, decentralized information systems are often easier to attack than they are to protect. On a playing field that is already far from level, interconnections between the physical and digital worlds have given rise to a new kind of threat: cyber-kinetic attacks targeting not only virtual assets, but physical ones too. These challenges are primarily technical, but they are inextricably linked to more fundamental questions around data privacy and sovereignty in complex economic and geopolitical contexts.
CEA-List is spearheading collaborative initiatives to develop new technologies addressing these issues. The institute is also an active contributor to French and European cybersecurity strategies.
