This is a specific cybersecurity conference taking place in France relating to communications.
The Symposium on Information and Communications Technology Security, or SSTIC, is an annual French-language conference on the topic of information security.
Every year, it brings together around 800 people from different backgrounds: universities, industry, governmental organisations. The objective of the SSTIC is to provoke meetings and discussions between these very varied audiences, around presentations on the current state of computer security in France and around the world.
Organized since 2003 in Rennes, the SSTIC is a French-speaking conference dealing with information security, whether it concerns information vectors (such as computer systems or networks) or information itself (cryptography or information warfare).
This conference brings together people interested in the technical and scientific aspects of information security. The subjects are treated in depth, didactic and prospective, under different aspects: technical, scientific, strategic, organizational, legal.
The conference takes place on the Beaulieu campus until 2016 inclusive, at the Rennes law faculty in 2017, then at the Couvent des Jacobins since 2018.
