WHAT IS CYBER WARFARE?
Including offensive and defensive actions that are generally invisible until discovered, cyber war is the new frontier of modern warfare, often described as "World War 3.0." Governments may not talk much about it but are deeply and competitively immersed.
Launched by nation states, terrorist groups and criminal hackers, cyberwar transcends national boundaries and takes many forms:
● virulent worms and viruses that can take out a power grid, water supply, transportation system or defense network;
● hacking and theft of critical information from governments, institutions, businesses and individuals;
● disinformation disrupting socio-political equilibrium;
● ransomware holding organizations hostage and malware infecting everything from personal computers to a complex military networks.
