Ready For IT: a turnkey summary of cyber fundamentals

Round tables Conferences Meet-ups

 Opening conference : Tuesday 17 May | 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm - Camille Blanc Amphitheatre


Part 1: Cyberattack, what next?

A major cyber attack always leaves traces. Material, technical and even psychological and human for the teams that had to manage the crisis and those who suffered the consequences. How do we get out of such a situation? What are the lessons to be learned and what are organisations doing to reduce the threat and resume their activities in complete "digital security"?

This exceptional round table will be an opportunity to hear the testimonies of CISOs and CIOs who have experienced a massive attack and who will share their experience and the way they have rebuilt their information systems.

Part 2: Moralising the ethics of digital and AI "with a hammer"

The hammer in question is borrowed from Friedrich Nietzsche who, in Twilight of the Idols, proposed a sound hammer to strike philosophical concepts and hear them resonate. We will use it to strike small blows on the major principles invoked by the digital regulation committees, in order to listen to the echo they send back and to test their relevance. This will be an opportunity to insist on the need for ethical reflection, while distinguishing it from the establishment of standards, norms, regulations and laws.

Blockchain, crypto, NFT, metaverse: understand everything about Web 3.0.

Blockchain, crypto, NFT, metaverse, token economy: you've probably already heard of them, but behind the buzzwords, do you really know what they are? Fabien Aufrechter starts from scratch to help you discover decentralised technologies through the prism of concrete applications. With one objective: that you yourself can explain blockchain, NFTs, the metaverse... to your colleagues, friends, or even your grandmother.

Industrial 5G: a feedback, environmental impact

The performances and functionalities of 5G make it an essential disruptive technology for the industry of the future (industry 4.0)
Feedback from projects carried out in various fields: manufacturing, seaports, health, etc. shows the impact in terms of efficiency, security, competitiveness, but also and above all in terms of environmental impact. Do these terms speak to you? Then come and participate and exchange during this keynote.

Leading in Times of Disruptive Change

In a world where there seems to be new gadgets, apps, and digital tools released daily (if not hourly), it’s easy to get lost in the flood of new technology and overlook how quickly, and profoundly our world is changing.
In this unique talk, Rahaf explores how technology is weaving itself into the social fabric of our lives and influencing every aspect of our personal and professional lives. Packed with fascinating case studies, Rahaf will show you how new technologies are shaping our behaviours and creating a new cultural paradigm and what this means for IT professionals.
With this keynote, audiences will go beyond the trends to develop a deep, human-centric understanding of how technology is changing our relationship with the world, and will learn key questions to ask to make better informed decisions and create strategies that will help them to thrive in the age of constant connection. 


Rahaf Harfoush, Digital anthropologist.

Round tables :

Wednesday 18 May | 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm

Digital transformation: what are the consequences in terms of security? - Apollinaire

The digital transformation in which all companies are engaged has considerably widened the attack surfaces. Working from home, Industry 4.0, mobility... not to mention internal reorganizations, have improved productivity and performance.
But they have also amplified the threats to such an extent that these different components of the digital transformation must now be observed from a security perspective.
After having exposed the consequences of this new paradigm, the round table will focus on showing what are the best practices to implement, why it is important to embrace the ecosystem and how CIOs and CISOs can make security and digital transformation rhyme.

  • Daniel Benabou, Managing Director, IDECSI
  • Aurélie Klein, Lawyer of Counsel, Digital, Tech & Data, Head of Digital Innovation at FIDAL and Associate Professor at the University of Strasbourg

Cyber insurance: what can it be used for? - Auric 2

While large companies are now asking themselves the question of taking out insurance for their cyber risks, small and medium-sized companies are rather taking the opposite approach. Especially since the professional liability insurance of company directors no longer covers cyber risks and in case of a disaster, the company director's own assets may be involved. During this round table, we will ask ourselves what is the interest of taking a cyber insurance; what are the prerequisites and how to work best with the broker or the insurer in case of an attack.


  • Marc-Henri Boydron, Founder of Cyber-Cover
  • Gabriel Leperlier, Partner – Director GRC/PCI & International, Almond

Hosted by : Philippe Loudenot, Cyber security delegate, Pays de la Loire Regional Council

Smart Cities: how to combine success and security? - Auric 3

Smart Cities are raising a lot of hopes, especially from local authorities. But the subject is complex because it mixes industry, digital, environment, regulation... all sectors that usually have little or no interaction, which is not without risks. In addition to this, the digital surface is becoming more and more extensive, and therefore the need to protect infrastructures and data is increasing. A round table that will highlight the digital vigilance points of smart cities and see what are the elements of success of such projects. 


  • Antoine Trillard, President of the Coter Numérique and CIO of the city of Chelles
  • Sébastien Valla, Director of Information Systems and Digital at the City of Saint-Etienne & Saint-Etienne Metropole

Hosted by : Frédéric Charles, Director of Digital Strategy & Innovation SUEZ SMART SOLUTIONS

Thursday 19 May | 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Digital security: where to start? - Apollinaire

Many mid-sized organizations are struggling with how to manage their digital security.
What are the priorities? How to do the risk analysis? Does it cost too much? What are the short and medium term impacts?
This round-table discussion, based on feedback, will highlight best practices, challenge some preconceived ideas and provide CIOs and CISOs with the keys to move forward quickly.

Supply chain: How to outsource while limiting risks? - Auric 2

Subcontracting has become an imperative for many companies: not only because it is becoming almost impossible to have internal and global control of the entire production chain, but also because of a lack of resources, particularly human resources. But subcontracting can have its limits and even its risks. When, for example, the chain breaks down for various reasons (e.g. war) or because the subcontractor has suffered a severe computer attack. During this round table, the speakers will discuss the risks and advantages of subcontracting, the safeguards (legal, technical, contractual, etc.) to be implemented and the way to establish trusting relationships in complete security.

Round Table organised by Agora : How to control the IT governance of one's company (public/private) and that of its ecosystem in a multi-crisis world? - Auric 3

Public and private companies and their ecosystems (customers, users, partners) are undergoing digital transformation in an increasingly complex context. Shouldn't the interoperability of their information systems lead CIOs and their pilots to better coordinate themselves in order to face the parallelism of threats and crises that are emerging? After an analysis of the resilience of existing private/public systems and organisations, the round table will focus on why it is important to review the IT governance of companies and their ecosystems.


  • Jean-Michel Mota, Director of IT Services Grand Est Direction générale des Finances publiques
  • Gérard Leymarie, Group Chief Security Officer Europe Assistance

How can data governance be put in place quickly? - Auric 3

For companies engaged in digital transformation, it is essential to know where the data is, how it is secured and safeguarded. This is to be able to make the right decisions in the running of the company and, in the case of a computer attack, to carry out the resilience plan as well as possible. The objective of this meeting is to specify the essential steps to quickly put in place good data governance.

Finding talent quickly - Auric 3

It is becoming essential to find talent quickly to meet skill needs. The first solution considered is often the recruitment of young engineers. But these young people are rare and the efforts made to make the sector more attractive will only provide a solution in several years. This meeting will present other ways of finding talent, particularly continuing education, which provides a rapid and effective response.
