Governance

Identity is evolving, and so is IN Groupe

The development of new activities and the expansion of our international presence reinforce IN Groupe's ambition to defend the identity of all people, whether physical or digital, and to ensure secure exchanges.

To support this aim, the group relies on a governance structure consisting of a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee. The Board of Directors is supported by four committees in charge of monitoring the strategic actions carried out by the group and defining and ensuring the proper use of resources to achieve the expected level of performance. The group has also set up six control mechanisms that enable us to take data protection, cybersecurity and ethical and social commitments even further.

The Board of Directors defines the group's strategic positioning based on strategic policies put forward by general management. The Board examines all matters relating to the company’s operations and gives its opinion on matters relating to it.

The Board of Directors, as the company’s governing body, acts in the company’s corporate interests.

Its role is to deliberate on the major strategic, economic, financial or technological directions of the group and its subsidiaries and to ensure their implementation by general management.

This Governance refers to the application of Order 2014-948 of 20 August 2014 on governance and transactions involving the capital of companies with public shareholdings.
