France is almost ready for a cyberwar

These days, French army is leading its annual cyber defense exercise called DEFNET (From 20th until 31th of March 2017). 

150 cyber specialists from the Defense Ministry plus highly skilled students will work on a global scale cyber attack simulation. 

First aim would be counter-attack rogue states such as North Korea during hybrid conflicts. Another aim is to lower the Jihadist cyber propaganda.

French army is looking to build up a 4900 soldiers reserve before 2019 in order to deliver better strategy and defense during cyber attack. 

NATO is expected to run its own cyber defense simulation (between 15 Member States. Held in Tallinn, Estonia) called "Locked Shields" between April 20th and 30th 2017.
