Cyber and Warfare

  • Jacob G. Oakley


There is an awful lot of hype and confusion surrounding the concept of cyber warfare. It is certainly a term that has gained traction recently in the media and in military and government discussions. As ambiguous as the term cyber is itself, cyber warfare seems to suffer from even more variance and mischaracterization in its definition, doctrine, and implementation. Fortunately, I believe that in understanding warfare and cyber separately we can societally come to a more standardized and widespread acceptance of what it means to defend ourselves in a cyber war, conduct cyber warfare, and perhaps globally define what is and is not acceptable in such conflicts.
