During the Assises de la Sécurité, Monaco’s annual event for cybersecurity experts, Minister of State Pierre Dartout and Country Chief Digital Officer Frédéric Genta received members of the French parliament at the Ministry of State, where they gave a presentation on Monaco’s policy in this area, as well as the various infrastructure projects that have been rolled out in the Principality over the last three years.
This opportunity for discussion and sharing allowed members of the delegation to learn about the large-scale digital projects launched in the Principality in 202, such as digital identity, the sovereign cloud, 5G and the establishment of the Office for Outer Space Affairs.
Other key digital transition themes were also addressed, including data exploitation, the digital economy and combatting cyber bullying.
Frédéric Genta noted that 5% of the state budget was allocated to digital, and that the Blue Fund, launched in September 2020 as part of the post-health crisis recovery plan had already enabled nearly 300 businesses to implement digital projects and to create more than 250 jobs in the Principality.
