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. All war today is cyber war, and all conflict is cyber conflict.|
Cyberwar is a state of conflict. It is related to the technological environment and to cybersecurity, but cyber conflict comprehends those and many other topics into a greater national security construct. Today our nation faces constant adversary action and conflict in cyberspace. Meeting the challenges this adversary action causes requires an understanding of what people and companies and governments can proactively do to bring the fight to adversaries. It also involves deep understanding of adversary tactics and capabilities so we can really understand The Cyber Threat.
|We track the the history of cyber conflict, the cutting edge concept being implemented in government, the technological dimensions of cyber war, and, most importantly, the key actions you should take to help protect your personal and business information in cyber conflict. 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|

Maybe we should state the obvious here. HSBC is a bank. So they are a target. It is also worth pointing out that they know they are a bank and should know that they are a target. Another thing they should know is that there are ways to economically raise defenses and then test that those defenses were really raised. Anyway, here is what American Banker tells us: A small number … [Read more...] about HSBC suffers data breach on small number of online accounts
