Addressing security, trust and privacy to ensure the security of citizens and organizations

Mission: 

Our mission is to coherently address cybersecurity from a technological perspective keeping a holistic approach in mind (considering people, processes, and technology), in an effort to ensure innovation in the field of cyber incidents detection, impact assessment and response, by providing effective, intelligent, usable and context-aware solutions, for ensuring the security of citizens and organizations from threats such as cybercrime and cyber terrorism, while respecting fundamental rights, such as privacy.

Vision: 

We envisage positioning Atos as one of the top 5 cybersecurity companies worldwide, working on a combination of multi-layered and integrated cybersecurity solutions, user education and awareness supported by processes, best practices, and governance as a way to prevent, mitigate and remediate cyber-attacks. With this vision in mind, we address existing and future challenges regarding security in areas, such as IoT, Critical Infrastructures, 5G networks, shared service applications, Cloud infrastructures, AI, Social Networks, risk assessment, digital forensics, training, among many others.

Values: 

We focus our research on three main aspects: usability, intelligence, and automation.

Usable security is at the very core of the innovation. To this regard, our assets provide accurate information to each decision maker in the organization to guide security analysts in this process.

In terms of intelligence, we are including technologies such as AI and Machine Learning in the cybersecurity arena with the objective of making the solutions capable of comprehending the relationships between different observations in an enterprise environment and to identify behavioral models for every element of the organization.

We have been developing the concept of security automation when possible across tools and processes to avoid the use of manual intervention as much as possible, which, combined with the other two values, makes it possible to achieve an intelligence-driven cyber defense.
