Topic 2: Designing Cyberwarfare Defense Strategies
As noted in Theohary and Rollins (2015), trying to define what cyberwarfare actually is can be quite difficult. A large part of the problem in defining what constitutes cyberwarfare is the range of threat actors that engage in various cyberwarfare activities. Given a similar outcome of disruption either to a national government or a country’s infrastructure, discuss what differences there may be in defensive strategies that would depend on different threat actors. Consider the different motivations of different threat actors and how motivation might inform a particular defensive strategy.
