REPORT – The discreet action of Russian channels in Western conspiracy circles

GEODE Report
November 16, 2022

This research note extends the analysis of content sharing between Telegram channels presented in our previous study. We show that by increasing the depth of a query generated by the Telegram analysis tool developed by GEODE, we can better understand the integration of pro-Russian channels into Western conspiracy sphere. We can also refine our understanding of the content and internal structures of different conspiracy communities.

Even in the US, the planification was stronger than it was in Ukraine and in Russia.

Cloud defence: an operational challenge, a strategic imperative and a sovereignty issue

Cloud defence: an operational challenge, a strategic imperative and a sovereignty issue

Études de l'IFRI - Focus stratégique

The French Ministry of Defence has decided to make cloud computing one of the pillars of its digital transformation.

However, resorting to the cloud implies outsourcing part of the management of IT resources, which poses many challenges of a technical and cultural nature, but also political and industrial. In addition to the imperative of technological control, there are major strategic issues relating to autonomy and influence. Cloud Defence therefore depends as much on the ability of the armed forces to adapt the technology to their security and operational requirements, as on the industrial partnerships set up by the Ministry, and on national policies on the subject.
