Cassidian CyberSecurity goes into partnership with AXA MATRIX Risk Consultants

Cassidian CyberSecurity and AXA MATRIX Risk Consultants have signed a cooperation agreement to sensitise the managers of large enterprises to cyber risks and to implement risk identification and prevention programmes.

Today's national and international companies face a steadily growing incidence of increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks whose primary aim is to steal the company's IT assets by extracting sensitive data.

Against this backdrop, Cassidian CyberSecurity and AXA MATRIX Risk Consultants will offer their customers cyber risk prevention programmes to reduce the potentially damaging consequences of security attacks.

This cooperation agreement primarily targets the most critical areas of activity such as the generation of electric power, the automotive industry, the aviation and aircraft manufacturing industries, and the luxury goods industry.

The new partnership will give customers the benefit of three intervention levels: identifying levels of risk and exposure to cyber threats by performing special audits and reducing cyber risks through a wide range of services focusing on a Cyber Operations Centre and allowing real-time monitoring. The last intervention level concerns business continuity activities by applying business continuity and contingency specific methods and planning to IT systems.

Due to the enormity of the threat, cyber risks must be rated as risks of the highest level. Cassidian CyberSecurity and AXA MATRIX Risk Consultants, with their sound experience of cyber security issues and risk analysis, will thus support Executive Committee members and decision-makers faced with this new occupational risk.
