Although the banking/finance sector still accounts for close to 50% of the EBRC’s 75 million Euro turnover, the operator has convinced around 400 customers in many other sectors, including FinTech companies, international institutions, stakeholders in the healthcare sector, in critical industries, in e-Commerce, in the aerospace sector, and more. “The banking world was the first to understand the importance of risk management, but the healthcare sector is raising the bar in terms of requirements. The market will further expand with OVIs and OESs as defined by the NIS Directive” added Yves Reding. Philippe Dann, Director Risk & Business Advisory at EBRC details EBRC’s approach: “There are two key points in a cyber-resilience process. The risks must first be fully mapped and then be contextualised with respect to the company’s business. This contextualisation of risks will be different depending on whether it relates to the financial sector, the healthcare sector, or the transport sector.” Thus, many companies engaged in their digital transformation are moving towards a multi-cloud architecture. It is becoming necessary to take a snapshot of the customer’s business, to identify the processes that use sensitive and not-so-sensitive data, to identify critical and not-so-critical operations in the ad hoc regulatory context. On that basis, it becomes possible to optimise the IT infrastructure actually used by the business lines, and to use the risk assessment to propose various architectures, including the private cloud and the hybrid cloud. These are all areas to which EBRC consulting activities can bring its expertise beyond the provision of purely IT-based services.
