This book argues that computer security has evolved from a technical discipline to a strategic concept. The world’s growing dependence on a powerful but vulnerable Internet – combined with the disruptive capabilities of cyber attackers – now threatens national and international security. Strategic challenges require strategic solutions. The author examines four nationstate approaches to cyber attack mitigation.
Cyber security has quickly evolved from a technical discipline to a strategic concept. Globalization and the Internet have given individuals, organizations, and nations incredible new power, based on constantly developing networking technology.
For everyone – students, soldiers, spies, propagandists, hackers, and terrorists – information gathering, communications, fund-raising, and public relations have been digitized and revolutionized.
As a consequence, all political and military conflicts now have a cyber dimension, the size and impact of which are difficult to predict, and the battles fought in cyberspace can be more important than events taking place on the ground.
As with terrorism, hackers have found success in pure media hype. As with Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), it is difficult to retaliate against an asymmetric attack
The astonishing achievements of cyber espionage serve to demonstrate the high return on investment to be found in computer hacking.
The start-up cost is low, and traditional forms of espionage, such as human intelligence, are more dangerous. Computer hacking yields free research and development data and access to sensitive communications.
