Homeland Security

Guaranteeing citizens' security through efficiency, innovation and cost control

 

Security is a topic of critical importance for all nation states.

Within a tense international context, marked by a rise in terrorist threats, domestic security agencies from all countries need to achieve productivity gains and adopt innovative technologies whilst controlling spending.

Within this context governments must always be in a position to exchange information in real time with a maximum level of security and they need to optimise the interoperability of their systems. This will give everyone access to the information they need, when they need it. At the same time, despite budgetary constraints and controlled resources, they must comply with rapidly changing laws and regulations, as well as with EU programmes, such as the Schengen Agreement or the Eurosur border-control system.

Sopra Steria has 35 years’ experience of providing support to administrations in charge of domestic security to help them meet these challenges.

Our experts operate in 24 countries, serving customers from a variety of specialist fields: police, emergency and rescue services, border control, population census, justice, customs and domestic/international security. On behalf of these organisations, we take on large-scale, complex and critical projects focusing on:

  • Surveillance management systems
  • Automated command-and-control systems (e.g. the STORM and IGNIS solutions for emergency-service effectiveness)
  • Civil and criminal biometric and identity document management solutions
  • Intelligent, distributed computer systems
  • Securing of infrastructures
  • Mobile technologies optimising interventions in the field.

IoT Line: a comprehensive and overarching offer

IoT Line is one of the most comprehensive and advanced offers that currently exists in terms of IoT project support. It combines three essential axes:

  1. Consulting, which covers areas like implementation of adapted business models, training and support during periods of change;
  2. Technology, which offers IoT expertise (embedded intelligence, sensors, connectivity, platforms) combined with all the other components of digital transformation which include mobility, the cloud, data management and cybersecurity;
  3. Roll-out, which develops know-how throughout the whole IoT value chain, from design to roll-out;

Regarding accomplishment and support of IoT projects, Sopra Steria already has major client references from projects which improve processes (cost reduction, improved security, improved maintenance, risk prevention and quality at work) for key industrial accounts.

The national ecosystem at the heart of the IoT approach 

Sopra Steria positions itself as an IoT integrator which ensures the perfect integration of each of a project's components: business model, technological bricks, orchestration of participants in partnership with the national ecosystem, etc. The latter include start-ups, technology suppliers, software publishers, research centres, schools, universities and regional Sopra Steria teams. IoT Line experts are based in two strategic centres in France; the IoT Center in Toulouse (design and prototyping of connected objects) and the IoT Factory in Angers (Roll-out) within the City of Connected Objects.
