13 13 PRESS KIT 2014 Thales in the Security Market Thales offers customers unparalleled experience in security markets, with recognised expertise for large-scale and highly complex systems integration. Modern societies are mobile and interconnected and the infrastructure that allows them to function plays a critical role. As the nervous system of our societies, this infrastructure must not only improve the quality of life but also guarantee security, which is possibly our most precious asset in ensuring a sustainable future. Whenever governments, local authorities, infrastructure operators and businesses are faced with complex situations, they must combine the need for security with the quality of the services they provide. Security threats are inherently difficult to manage because there are so many different types terrorism, cybercrime, urban crime, trafficking, illegal immigration, natural disasters, industrial accidents, etc. and because they are constantly evolving. However, their economic impact can be enormous. In addition, information systems themselves are more vulnerable to attacks, so it has become crucially important to ensure the security of data and data networks. Anticipation and speed of response are increasingly crucial to ensuring security: operators and decision-makers need to be alerted as early as possible and they need faster access to reliable, detailed information so they can decide and act effectively in a crisis situation. Post-event analysis tools are also needed to help them capitalise on past experience. Thales s response Positioned as a value-added systems integrator, equipment supplier and service provider, Thales is one of Europe s leading players in the security market.
