Dakar, June 22, 2022 – A partnership agreement has been signed between CFAO Technology & Energy and FORMIND Africa & Middle East (AME).
This cooperation between CFAO Technology & Energy and Formind AME was signed on Wednesday, June 22, at CFAO Technology & Energy headquarters in Dakar between CFAO Technology & Energy General Manager Alexis Madrange, Formind AME General Manager Youssef AGOUMI and FORMIND co-founder Hervé Morizot. The agreement will cover several cybersecurity activities, including consulting, integration, training, and resource and knowledge sharing.
In a world where threats continue to grow in number and scope and where qualified cybersecurity resources are increasingly scarce, our organizations need to strengthen cooperation and knowledge sharing in the cybersecurity field to better evolve in their ecosystem and better serve their customers.
According to Alexis Madrange, “This partnership will allow us to expand our portfolio and offer new cybersecurity expertise services to our customers but also to respond to new trends such as outsourcing resources in IS security management.”
According to Youssef Agoumi, “This partnership comes at a key moment in our development and aims to accelerate our growth on the African continent. Joining forces with CFAO Technology & Energy seemed to be an obvious strategic choice.”
Hervé Morizot, CEO of the Formind Group, adds: “This partnership is strategic because, beyond associating the Formind and CFAO brands, it aims to help the African economic fabric to protect itself from the growing scourge of cyber-attacks.”
