BSA & Galexia Global Coud Computing Scorecard (2016) - Galexia Analytics Release
France provides strong protection for cloud services, through a combination of comprehensive cybercrime legislation and up-to-date copyright protection. France also has up-to-date electronic signature and electronic commerce laws in place.
Comprehensive privacy laws exist, though French privacy legislation includes onerous and cumbersome registration requirements that appear unnecessary.
France is one of the biggest improvers in the Scorecard in relation to information technology (IT) infrastructure.
France’s national broadband plan, France Très Haut Débit, is a 10-year-funded initiative launched in 2013. It covers a range of infrastructure and constructions programs, which use a range of technologies. The overall broadband target for the France Très Haut Débit plan is 100% coverage of France with speeds in excess of 30 megabits per second (Mbps) by 2022.
France’s IT infrastructure progress helped it to improve one spot from 6th in 2013 to 5th in the 2015 rankings.
