Key to the digital economy and digital trust

The group’s identity is built on nearly 500 years of history. Created by Francis I in 1538, the Imprimerie Nationale became IN Groupe in 2018. Behind this name change is a coherent strategy of modernisation and internationalisation of the company's activities, whilst maintaining our savoir-faire, legitimacy and prestige. This shift is part of the profound transformation of the group, which is now an established competitive name on the market, attracting young talent, and with a strong regional foothold: IN Groupe is a global specialist in identity and secure digital services. More than just an economic player, the group is a strategic partner for any public service, company or government wanting to maintain its digital sovereignty and offer everyone the Right to Be You.

Supporting changes

Decentralisation, paperless exchanges, development of the digital economy and increased circulation of people and information have reinforced the need for ensuring security of identities, goods and data.

All public and private organisations are confronting the intricacies involved in these rapid and profound changes, all linked to individual freedoms of individuals, citizens, users or employees. IN Groupe supports these entities through their digital transformation to secure both identities and exchanges.

Adapting our offers to plan the future

In the future, all citizens will want to have access to their identity everywhere and at all times. They will require their identity to be protected with the highest levels of security and will use it in both the physical and digital worlds. Digital identity represents this totally secure freedom. It must be simple, universal and secure. This is a challenging promise to make, requiring higher levels of security, significant interoperability between systems and the implementation of remote services.

Odyssey 2025, a strategic development plan

The new 5-year strategic plan ‘Odyssey 2025’ is part of IN Groupe's resolve to become a key player in secure identity and trust solutions for global exchanges and transactions. The goal is to become a trusted player in migrating professional and government-issued identities to digital identities, whilst being an innovative provider of digital and physical services. Odyssey 2025 aims to strengthen the technological building blocks of each of the solutions offered by IN Groupe. A constant research effort allows us to develop innovative and competitive solutions for the benefit of all.

Identity is an inalienable right to be protected against monetisation, commercialisation and any access restrictions. Conversely, everyone must be able to identify themselves and have the means to prove this identity at any moment, in their private, professional and financial lives.
