The recent hacks of hospitals bear witness to the phenomenon. Cyber ​​attacks in France have quadrupled in the space of a year, forcing France and in particular its military to "strengthen its end-to-end cyber defense chain," the Minister of the Armed Forces said on Thursday (March 4th).

“If there is indeed a space where malevolence never sleeps, not even with one eye, a space where each of us can become the target, the vector, or even the amplifier of our threat, it is is the cyber space, ”she added, signing an agreement with the Public Interest Grouping Action contre la cybermalveillance (GIP Acyma).
