CTOvision Provides Cyberwar Context From Recognized Experts
Cyber War Is Not A Traditional Violent Clash On A Battlefield. But It Is A Conflict On A Broad Scale And You Are A Target.
|The study of cyberwar is more important now than it has ever been. Over the last 20 years we have witnessed cyberwar evolve from an obtuse but prescient concept to a theoretical possibility to a world of constant cyber attacks to today, where all war has cyber components.

We do that by capturing the thoughts of national security experts and cyber warriors with direct experience in this very serious domain. Our thought leaders take positions, but provide you with the insights you need to evaluate whether or not you support those positions. For example, see: What If This Is The Most Important Thing The Government Can Do To Enhance Our Cybersecurity? where we advocate for the intelligence community to provide compelling insights on the cyber threat to the American people. We also encourage everyone to consider that: Now That You Are A Soldier In The Cyber War You Must Know Your Cognitive Biases For a primer on strategic topics associated with cyberwar see: Twelve Principles of DoD Cyber Conflict|
