The President of the Republic announced a plan to support the French cybersecurity sector. These computer attacks affect all countries in all sectors, with attacks sometimes with cybercriminal aims and sometimes with a desire to destabilize another State.
On this subject, Emmanuel Macron recalls the progress already implemented by Anssi since 2017, and details the government's additional efforts in this area.
The objectives of the plan announced by the government are to strengthen the cyber security sector and support the digital transition of the players, companies and local authorities affected by this upsurge in attacks.
A four-part plan. The first part will be devoted to funding research and development of a "cutting-edge" technology offering in the security sector, to the tune of 500 million euros. Public funds will finance 290 million, while the rest will come from private players.
The second part of the plan represents 148 million euros and concerns the "strengthening of links in the sector". State investment will amount to 74 million euros.
The third component aims to "support demand", with a plan of 176 million euros. 136 million will be allocated to Anssi through the recovery plan and the rest will be aimed at supporting the training effort.
The final component, valued at 200 million euros, will concern direct investments by the State in cybersecurity companies. Here too, the State is counting on public/private partnerships to support the emergence of new players.
