Values and Policies of Personal Information

The Chair Values and Policies of Personal Information was launched by the IMT in April 2013. Created in partnership with the Imprimerie Nationale, BNP Paribas and Dassault Systemes, the Chair benefits from the collaboration of the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL), the French Data Protection Authority and is also supported by the Telecom Foundation.

The Chair aims to help companies, citizens and public authorities in their reflection on the collection, use and sharing of personal information, such as information about individuals (their personal lives, their professional activities, their digital identities, their contributions on social networks, etc.) including those collected by smart objects that surround them (smartphones, smart meters, etc..).

The Chair is a multidisciplinary research team working on the following aspects:

  • Legal and regulatory compliance,
  • Technical security systems and data,
  • Economics of personal information sharing,
  • Philosophical accountability and anticipation of the societal consequences.

Cybersecurity of critical infrastructures

With the support of IMT Atlantique, in collaboration with Télécom SudParis and Télécom ParisTech, together with 7 industrial partners and the Brittany region, as part of the Center of Cyber Excellence, this Chair will contribute to the development of research and training activities at international level in an area that has become a national priority: the cybersecurity of critical infrastructures.

Currently, security policies for information systems are deployed statically. A method that would allow the dynamic updating of security policies is becoming a necessity. This Chair’s goal will therefore be to develop a theoretical and experimental framework for specifying and managing a security policy capable of dynamically adapting to changes in the risk environment.

For this purpose, research work will focus on 4 priorities:

  • Advanced analysis of data for cybersecurity purposes
  • Definition of metrics for analyzing security risks
  • Responsiveness to multiple and coordinated events
  • Collection and generation of cybersecurity data to be made available

The results could be of interest to several sectors, particularly in industrial control systems, vehicle applications, major communication networks, and cloud computing.
