Discover the role played by security in Société Générale's digital transformation project. How is security taken into account? Is it security friend or foe at the service of business units? How can the notion of "Security by design" be compatible with the necessary agility in such a project? Khaled Soudani, IT Infrastructure COO, Société Générale Group, and Philippe Courtot, CEO and Chairman of Qualys, will introduce you to a project in which security has provided the foundation of trust indispensable to the bank's digital strategy.

As CEO of Qualys, Philippe has worked with thousands of companies to improve their IT security and compliance postures.
