Identity is evolving, and so is IN Groupe

The development of new activities, along with an expanded international presence, have reinforced the Group’s ambition to defend the identity of all people – whether that identity be physical or digital – as well as ensure the security of different interactions.

To support this goal, the Group relies on a governance structure composed of a Board of Directors and Executive Committee. The Board of Directors is supported by four committees in charge of monitoring the Group’s strategic actions, as well as defining and ensuring the effective use of resources to achieve performance targets. The Group has also set up six control mechanisms that enable it to advance even further with regard to data protection, cybersecurity and ethical and social commitments.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors defines the strategic orientation of the Group, based on strategic lines laid down by general management. The Board examines all matters relating to the company’s operations and makes decisions in accordance therewith.

The Board of Directors, in its capacity as the company’s governing body, acts in the company’s corporate interests. Its role is to deliberate on the strategic, economic, financial, and technological direction of the Group and its subsidiaries, and to ensure that activities aligned with this direction are implemented by general management. This governance role is based on the application of Ordinance 2014-948 of 20 August 2014, pertaining to the governance and management of capital belonging to public shareholding companies.
