Security and sovereignty: two key drivers for startups - Panel discussion with CISCO, Inria, Cap Digital, Iterop & OUTSCALE at CLOUD DAYS 2023

In the world where the number of security risks keeps growing, data is one of the main concerns of European business leaders. Thus, startups need to provide their customers with sufficient guarantees to preserve data confidentiality and sovereignty.

In startups’ dynamic, interconnected and highly competitive environment, where time-to-market is key, reducing time to develop and deliver solutions that are more innovative than others, security and sovereignty play a fundamental role in long-term success and prosperity. These two elements are essential to protect the valuable assets of emerging companies, build the confidence of customers and investors, navigate with agility in an ever-changing geopolitical landscape and preserve independence. It is crucial for startups to integrate these elements into their overall strategy from the outset.


Forging trustworthy partnerships

To achieve this, startups need to find support from the best players on the market, committed to meeting the highest standards not only in terms of performance, but also transparency, security and sovereignty. These companies can help startups manage data security, make them more efficient and ensure that the project has a real, long-term impact.

Estelle Brown, Manager of OUTSCALE for Entrepreneurs acceleration program, has gathered high quality speakers at CLOUD DAYS to explore how security and sovereignty have become cornerstones for startups, and how they help build solid foundations for their future:

Jennyfer Lecompte, Director of Research, Development & Innovation Programs at CAP DIGITAL, Guillaume Chelius, Codesigner at Inria Startup Studio, Eric Vedel, CISOs Field Advisory Practice – EMEA at CISCO, and Aurélien Codet De Boisse, Director of ITEROP.
