ANSSI, France’s National Cybersecurity Agency reporting to the Secretariat-General for National Defense and Security (SGDSN), is a key player in France’s cybersecurity landscape. Its main mission is to secure government information systems, but it is also responsible for providing advice, and supporting administrations and businesses. As such, its recommendations and certifications are particularly valuable for all computer security professionals. Explanations.
Given the increasing number of threats and risky employee behaviors, CISOs are hard-pressed to face them all. This is the reason why ANSSI provides many useful resources, available directly on its website (https://www.ssi.gouv.fr/).
ANSSI first provides useful information to understand major threats to businesses and administrations, as well as regulations (GDPR, NIS, protection of critical infrastructures), basic precautions and good practices depending on context (fixed or mobile workstation, company network, industrial systems, etc.).
These recommendations cover the most critical topics in cybersecurity, including the issue of digital nomadism.
All IT security professionals are now aware that employee smartphones are currently under increased attacks. For many users, smartphones have become their first and main screen, especially for mobile employees. Staying connected to a business therefore requires exchanging data and information using a phone. A habit that should be secured to avoid hacking and interceptions.
Securing remote access to the enterprise information systems is essential for managing privacy and data integrity, as well as ensuring user authentication. For this purpose, ANSSI offers practical guides and training to improve knowledge and accelerate skill transfer.
In addition to providing information on threats and best practices for security, ANSSI goes further to support CISOs in choosing which service providers and cybersecurity products they can trust.
ANSSI certifies around a hundred solutions every year. These include smart cards, network products, storage systems, firewalls, antivirus, secure messaging systems, etc.
For a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), choosing a product certified by ANSSI is one of the best existing insurance. This means that the chosen solution provides a level of security that can withstand the attacks of most computer hackers. It also offers a quick way to identify secure alternatives to consumer applications and solutions that are sometimes used in organizations.
Cybersecurity solutions come in many forms, and do not offer the same level of efficiency, reliability and confidence. At the same time, organizations differ in terms of activity profiles and criticality of the information they handle (banking data, trade secrets, defense secrets, etc.). They therefore have different security and confidentiality requirements. To help CISOs differentiate solutions and choose the best one based to their context, ANSSI has defined a precise nomenclature of “security visa” that can be classified into 2 categories:
There are three levels of qualification:
One or more certifications are often necessary to achieve the desired level of qualification. In this sense, certifications and qualifications can be complementary.
At least a certification at a reference level is required for a qualification.
One of the benefits of a qualification is that the level of security is necessarily relevant for government use and sensitive industries. For this purpose, ANSSI will gradually require critical infrastructure operators to use qualified solutions for securing their critical infrastructures.
