According to AFP, it is another main partner of the IOC, also a third-tier partner of Paris 2024, the French Atos, which will be in charge of the processing of sensitive data of the organizing committee. Discussions have been going on for some time around cybersecurity and the very complex issue of OCOG data management by Alibaba.

The accredited file of the Olympic Games must be managed by Atos

In its first interim report, presented in November 2020, the Court of Auditors had already warned about the case of the Chinese e-commerce giant. After numerous meetings between the State, the National Authority for the Security and Defense of Information Systems (Anssi) and the OCOG, the file of those accredited for the Paris Games should, for example, be managed by Atos and not by Alibaba as originally expected.

When contacted, Paris 2024 is cautious on this issue and did not want to provide any details: “ We work with the CIO and their Tech Partners to guarantee the highest standards in data protection. The idea is to guarantee data protection during the Games in accordance with European GDPR standards. The result of this work will be shared shortly. »
