Orange has set up its new headquarters for Orange Cyberdefense, the Group’s entity dedicated to corporate cyber-security, at La Défense, Europe’s largest business district, in the Paris area. This new 6,800m² campus, spread over 12 levels, is home to almost 500 employees since early September.
In the presence of Mounir Mahjoubi, Minister of State for the digital sector attached to the Prime Minister, Patrick Devedjian, President of the Hauts-de-Seine Departmental Council, Guillaume Poupard, Director General of ANSSI, and Thierry Delville, Ministerial Delegate for Security Industries and the Fight against Cyberthreats, the inauguration of the new campus was an opportunity to take stock of Orange Cyberdefense’s expertise and ambitions and to meet the teams.
With an increasing number of targeted threats, security has become a major issue for all departments within the company. Confident that cybersecurity is one of the main drivers of growth, Orange has chosen to develop a global and proactive approach to security through its entity Orange Cyberdefense.
This new campus will help companies to develop their “immune system” against digital threats and combines the best expertise in anticipating and handling cybersecurity threats.
“The Orange Group has made cybersecurity a strategic priority within its Essentials2020 plan. In just two years, Orange Cyberdefense has become France’s leading player in cybersecurity and our aim now is to become a leader in Europe,” says Stéphane Richard, Chairman and CEO of Orange.
“The Campus brings together our experts in a single facility to promote collaboration and sharing. It is also ready to welcome future recruits. We were keen to involve the teams during the development of this new working environment that is conducive to their well-being while at the same time complying with cybersecurity requirements,” explains Michel Van Den Berghe, CEO of Orange Cyberdefense.
