«Mag-Securs» magazine has been created in 2003. At this time, high speed data transmissions were at the very beginning. Services availability were critical topics with many issues: networks and systems saturation, operation system compromising, virus and malwares. Security editors such as government authorities were already working very hard.
In 2007, «Mag-Securs» made a deal with «PC Presse», publisher of the magazine « L’Informaticien » since 2002, to get more visibility and power to address the French professional IT market. The target was to be the number one in the French IT security communication market. And we get it.
Since then, security needs increased and threats were more and more complicated. With confidential issues, governance, sovereignty, industrial development and so on.
«Mag-Securs» always follows these news. In France, the magazine is focusing the military programing law and the future European data privacy regulation, and many other security subjects, as well as any security issues topics and other technical issues.
