Throughout history, from Alexander the Great to the great leaders of today, information has always been a component of war. Few said it better than the Duke of Wellington: The business of war, is to endeavor to find out what you don’t know by what you do.
Now that the majority of information is digital, all war is cyber war.
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.
The CTOvision Cyberwar and Cybersecurity weekly report captures lessons learned from our close observation of adversary activity and insights from the best defensive measures being applied in organizations today. We also provide information on the technologies of defense in ways you can leverage to your benefit.
