In an attempt of meeting the challenges raised by the acceleration of innovation, Havas Group has unveiled Havas Sovereign Technologies. The new entity will aim to offer its clients end-to-end support in appropriating innovations, protecting their reputation, and mitigating the risks associated with new technologies. The new platform includes the Havas Blockchain offer, which will continue to support companies on the blockchain technology front, as well as a new series of offers to provide 360° support on all subjects related to sovereign technologies. The group will offer its services to companies, start-ups, public institutions and non-governmental organizations.
This approach is based on four pillars:
- Expertise in technological intelligence,
- Strategic consulting in digital governance,
- Deployment of digital infrastructures,
- Global communication support.
Detailing about it, Fabien Aufrechter, former Director of Havas Blockchain, who is taking over the management of this new platform, said, “This evolution comes at an opportune time. The technological leap of the last five years has turned digital sovereignty from a purely technological issue into a real strategic challenge.”
He further added, “The issues of innovation, trust and technological security have become inescapable for both public and private players. With its expert and agile approach, Havas Sovereign Technologies will accompany brands and institutions in their quest to no longer offer ‘just technology’ but ‘the right technology’ “.
