The National Assembly approved this Friday at first reading a bill on the creation of a "cyberscore".

The device would serve to inform users of digital tools on the security of their personal data.

The text, initiated by the centrist Union in 2020, is now returning to the Senate to be definitively validated.

"We cannot be naive", declared the Secretary of State for the Digital Transition, Cédric O, before the senators.

“Our digital life carries risks.

"

Why France wants sites to display a #cyberscore, inspired by #nutriscore.



To assess the level of security of a website or platform, the NA examines the proposed law which wants to establish a “cyber-score”.

Small operators not concerned?

The aim of the law is to supplement the Consumer Code.

It would add an obligation for operators to communicate information relating to the security of their data to users.

This will result in a “cyberscore” visual, like the “nutriscore” for food products.

The audit will be carried out by service providers qualified by the National Information Systems Security Authority (Anssi).

The entry into force is scheduled for October 1, 2023. The scope of application is however debated.

The list of operators concerned will be fixed later by decree.

The most important must be subject to the obligation, but not the small players for whom it would be too heavy and expensive, according to the rapporteur of the text to the National Assembly Christophe Naegelen (UDI).

Against the advice of the government, the deputies also decided that the location of the hosted data should be an integral part of the cybersecurity diagnosis.

"It seems essential that consumers can know where their data is hosted when they connect to a platform", motivated the authors of the amendment, Christophe Naegelen and Philippe Latombe (MoDem).
