ways to combat cyber threats, Mandiant will help Alpine F1 Team stay ahead of cyber threats, so they can focus on pushing the boundaries of technology and innovation, both on and off road.
Laurent Rossi, CEO of Alpine: “In Formula 1, success is achieved by pushing people and technology to their limits while minimizing risks. The world’s fastest cars are also some of the safest, and we needed a strategic partner who could help us extend the same approach to our data, the digital reflection of who we are. Mandiant will thus cover a critical aspect of our engineering operations and is a welcome new member of our family of technical partners.
Pierre d’Imbleval, VP IS / IT Alpine: “Formula 1 teams are at the forefront of technological innovation and, when you are part of an elite, it is easier to become a target. In Mandiant, we found a strategic partner who shares our understanding of the importance of planning and managing cyber risks. Mandiant will provide cyber defense
to the Alpine F1 Team digital ecosystem, spanning design, supply chain, production, simulation and racing operations. In a hyper-connected digital world, this is no less critical than the advanced and very tangible solutions we apply to protect our drivers. “
