Abstract:

This paper identifies the way the international system has adapted to threatening weapons, such as weapons of mass destruction, through laws and treaties. This is a fundamental way of thinking about dealing with emerging cyber threats. The speed and tenacity of cyber weapons present a stark future of unbound hybrid warfare, driven primarily by China and Russia, which challenges the Western international order.

On Levels of Deterrence in the Cyber Domain

Abstract:

Deterrence is a coercive strategy to avoid escalation to direct conflicts. In the Cold War, nuclear deterrence was successfully used to prevent a war between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. In the cyber domain, which is man-made and virtual, how deterrence can be effectively applied is one of today’s biggest challenges.

Rhizomatic Target Audiences of the Cyber Domain

Abstract:

Target Audience Analysis (TAA) is a process of finding suitable target audiences for psychological operations (PSYOPS). Typically, a TAA is a one-way process with some kind of a feedback system. The cyber domain presents a challenge to this type of sequential, linear process by refusing to stay still while the process is being executed, possibly leading to results from yesterday’s data in an environment that no longer exists today.
