Abstract:

Nations and organisations require concepts and capabilities for anticipating, deterring, preventing, protecting against and responding to a disruption or a denial of access to the global commons domains air, maritime, space and cyber and for ensuring freedom of action within them, while taking into account their interrelationships. There is currently a gap in our ability to generate sufficient collaborative national and international situational awareness across the cyber domain. This generates a requirement for a generic and comprehensive framework that details the processes for generating sufficient collaborative national and international cyber situational awareness. Cyber situational awareness is required across the public and private sectors, and at a national and international level, if we are to truly provide a comprehensive and integrated response to sophisticated threats that can operate below the detection thresholds of many existing processes and systems. The aim of this paper is to describe the concept of employment for a cyber situational awareness capability that will support international and national access to and freedom of action within the global commons.
