Abstract:

The public-private sector, international organizations, states, nonstate actors, and adversaries increasingly rely on the cyber space environment for trade, socialization, commerce, and the free flow of information. Any significant disruption in cyber space poses a considerable risk to our political, social, and economic systems. With the steady rise of cyber attacks, the international community coupled with numerous state and nonstate players face the grim reality that cyber terrorism is the new weapon of choice. Establishing a coalition of like-minded cyber partners to address international laws, privacy, and intelligence sharing is paramount to our success and protection. I will discuss proven techniques used by battlefield commanders to prepare their formations for conflict and contrast those techniques with the cyber communitys actions to deal with cyber terrorism.
