Pagination or Media Count:
Cyber warfare is a form of information warfare, sometimes seen as analogous to conventional warfare, among a range of potential actors, including nation states, non-state groups, and a complex hybrid of conflict involving both state and non-state actors. Cyber warfare is a tool of national power, and countries are greatly improving their capabilities to conduct military operations in cyberspace. This is a domain where failure is not an option . An entire nation s ability to operate and fight in the information age is vital toward survival. Nowadays, cyber warfare is mostly focused on economics which may be the shortcut to their victory. This strategic research project addresses the strategic-level issues related to cyber warfare, and describes the need for good national policies and strategies that are adequately resourced. It will focus on the case of the Republic of Turkey and the unique challenges facing that country in planning and implementing such a strategy. This paper will define cyber warfare, cyberspace and provide an analysis on the potential impact this threat could have on both the government and private sector. Finally, it will offer a recommended strategy for Turkey with recommendations for organizational structures and resource requirements.
