Lior Tabansky demonstrates that armed forces do not shield a society from cyber-attacks originated by foreign adversaries. Further, he defies conventional explanations rationalizing the situation. In both the U.S. and Israel, Armed Forces experiment with new systems, ‎‎novel ‎operational concepts, doctrinal and organizational changes. However, these only serve the traditional military activities. Peacetime strategic defense maladaptation ‎is the root cause of the profound cyber-insecurity in the developed democracies. Western democracies cannot expect favorable outcomes as long as states forsake defending their own citizens at homeland.
