France's lack of a cyber fire department

"cyber security is everyone's business", likes to repeat Guillaume Poupard, the general director of the national security Agency information systems (Anssi). If you have the necessary human resources.... However, "in France, the development of the digital security esr hampered by the lack of persons trained in these trades," alerting the Agency in Digital Paper, the edition 2020 of its annual review, made public this Wednesday.

However, efforts are being made to overcome this deficiency. Anssi greet the arrival of the cyber security in the textbooks and programs, but it calls for teachers to be accompanied. For the active, there are training, such as those provided by the training Center of the information systems security (CFSSI) of the Anssi offers training to public officials and persons of the operators of the importance of vital and essential services. But that still is not enough to satisfy the needs of a sector that is critical. Paradoxically, cyber-security suffers from a lack of attractiveness.

However, the subject is at the heart of all the themes most in vogue in the world of Tech. Ransomware, espionage, privacy, Blockchain, electronic voting... the cyber security underpins all of these issues. In the Face of different threats, Anssi considers that it is more effective and resistant than ever. "The professionalisation of the sector of the response to the incident" is, according to Serge Lefranc, head of the division an Answer to the origin of this improvement. The challenges are all the more important as, by excellence, the response to a cyber attack does not fit in to a pre-established schedule. In addition, all malicious actions do not require the same treatments.

"In the event of an attack by rançongiciel the effects are immediate and visible. It unfolds immediately, it is often more short. But when one is faced with espionage, where the attacker is discreet and the final effect being sought is not known, things are more diffuse, and our commitment to long", explains Serge Lefranc. In the Face of the necessary responsiveness of the staff of the Anssi, a new term appeared: the "cyber-fighters", which illustrates both the mobilization and the responsiveness necessary to cope with these threats.
