PHOTO GALLERY: Thales holds media event calling attention to cybersecurity

12 Apr 2018

Today in Paris Thales opened its doors to international media to effectively flex its muscles and reveal some of the cybersecurity technologies it has developed for the future.

The company has invested more than 1 billion euros in developing its expertise and footprint across four key digital technologies - connectivity, big data, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity.

Throughout the day Thales demonstrated with concrete examples how cybersecurity impacts the daily lives of enterprises, organisations and ultimately each citizen, in addition to announcing several important developments in the sector.

Some of the highlights of the day included a representation of what a world would be like without cybersecurity, a live ethical hacker breaking into a completely oblivious person’s smartphone, some of the amazing technology on offer from the company as well as the noteworthy insights from Thales CEO Patrice Caine.

There will be more stories to come from the day, but for now have a look at some of the photos
