The three HEC Paris Centers of expertise (SnO, Digital & Entrepreneurship) have recently started a Conference series.

Running a start-up in Cybersecurity

Data security is probably the most important factor in any business. The risk of someone gaining access to your confidential information is even higher if you are storing your data virtually.
Luc Delsalle, Alsid* co-founder & CTO, and Anne-Sybille Pradelles, Alsid Key account manager and former participant in the HEC MBA Specialization in Entrepreneurship, explained the challenges undertaken when creating a start-up in Cybersecurity. They explained what active directory security is and introduced practical ways to secure your business.
Michel Safars, HEC Affiliate Professor introduced the conference with Anne-Sybille, former student, who shares her experience and career choices : why did she decide to join a start-up and not a big company? What risk did she take? Why did she choose to work in a highly technical area?
*Alsid is a cybersecurity start-up that offers a unique solution to pilot enterprise network security in real time. By anticipating the early signs of cyber-attacks, Alsid offers a solution to react even before a computer attack takes place. The company was founded by former ANSSI technical experts with years of on-field experience. After seeing the same cyberattacks take place over and over again, they decided to tackle the problem and build a definitive solution to protect corporate networks.
