The government’s Department of the Interior and the Monegasque Digital Security Agency (AMSN) held a meeting with Operators of Major Importance in the Principality in late June to discuss cybersecurity risks.
The meeting was chaired by Admiral Dominique Riban, Director of AMSN, in the presence of Serge Telle, Minister of State, who said that Monaco’s cyberspace – an important vector of growth – needs to be safe. The government plans to introduce relevant legislation to improve the protection of Vital Information Systems (VSIS) for Operators of Major Importance (OIV).
Mr Philippe Trouchaud of PWC and Siemens’ Jean-Christophe Mathieu expounded on the dangers posed by cyberattacks when IT systems are not protected.
In conclusion, Patrice Cellario, Minister of the Interior, said: “The government has launched an ambitious and long-term process to enhance the level of digital security in the Principality.”
