“The reality is that today we are in a very real shooting war in cyberspace,” says Jamil Jaffer, Founder of the National Security Institute at George Mason University. “It may not be big bullets, it may not be big bombs or nuclear weapons, but we are in an ongoing offensive campaign brought by our enemies against us.”
This asymmetric warfare includes intellectual property theft by China, low-level ransomware attacks by Russia, and other hacking attacks by countries like North Korea and Iran. While most of these attacks have not targeted military equipment, that does not make the threat they pose any less real.
