Abstract : With the 2015 release of both an updated United States Department of Defense Cyber Strategy and a Chinese Ministry of National Defense white paper on military strategy, these public documents regarding States use of cyber technology and objectives for national security offer an insight into deeper military strategy for future security concerns. It is possible to examine the underlying objectives within these strategies to develop a theme for an organizations behavior in the cyber domain. Strategy is shaped by broad cultural dimensions, and this paper discusses two of the existing cultural dimensions theories and proposes three additional dimensions to provide context for organizational and military strategy.
