MANIFESTO

‘In a world of increasing interaction, we protect your identity, your transactions and your assets, helping to make your life simpler and more secure.

So your personal data stays that way. So you can prove your identity and assert your rights, throughout your life. So your purchases can be made with total peace of mind. So objects around you are not counterfeit and remain under your control. To preserve your company’s integrity and business continuity. To allow each citizen to move freely, to grow and change gracefully in the physical and digital worlds and to access an increasing number of services to facilitate their daily lives.

We support governments, companies and hundreds of millions of men and women in Europe and throughout the world. And nearly 500 years after our creation, we continue to innovate to sustainably offer the best technology today and for future generations’.

The Right to Be You

IN Groupe is committed to identity and property security, defending a fundamental right: the Right to Be You.

Learn how in this video.


The Right for every government to assert its sovereignty:

In a world of mobility and interaction, governments face growing challenges: securing borders, knowing and protecting citizens, guaranteeing respect for everyone's rights, managing and securing data and modernising their governance. IN Groupe is committed to supporting governments in the exercise of their sovereignty and enabling them to successfully accomplish their projects.

The Right for every individual to experience their citizenship:

Each individual, each citizen, is defined by their identity, with their rights and duties: to move freely, drive, travel, work, have housing, get medical care, receive aid, vote and protect their dealings and goods. More than a billion people in the world are denied an identity and therefore these fundamental freedoms. IN Groupe wishes to guarantee everyone the right to be themselves, a unique person, so that everyone can live their lives with peace of mind.

The Right of every company to maintain its integrity:

With competition, transformations, technological developments and more, data protection is crucial for companies, which are increasingly under threat from industrial espionage and hacking. In this context, IN Groupe steps in to give each company the means to work securely: archiving, protecting sensitive and confidential data and strengthening physical and logical access security for greater protection of trade, goods, objects and services.
