Cyberwar and the Future of Cybersecurity in 2019
There are bunch of end of year armageddon-like posts inevitably doing the rounds. Some of them taking a tongue in cheek “ethical hedonistic, devil may care” attitude such as Kim Crawley in 2019’s new cyberwarfare threats (or “It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine”) or my own generally and as usually cautiously pessimistic efforts in the post Cyber Warfare, The Gilets Jaunes, and Denial in Western Society as well as Eric Klein’s general commentary Are we doing enough? You can now take entire countries offline.
But for an overarching and pretty decent aggregation of the issues, the targets, the players and different actors, their relative impact, and UK/US policy with a nod at UN attempts at a “Cyberwarfare Code of Ethics” Geneva Convention lookalike as well as the possible trajectory of all of these matters in 2019 then one could do worse than read Cyberwar predictions for 2019: The stakes have been raised which expresses opinion on developments with respect to Cyberwar and asserts that “Cybersecurity will define many of the international conflicts of the future” providing “an overview of the current threat landscape, UK and US policy in this area, and some expert predictions for the coming year.”.
The article also contains a link to an e-book titled “Cyberwar and the Future of Cybersecurity in 2019” which is an aggregation of all TechRepublic’s Cyberwar and the Future of Cybersecurity articles.
A free TechRepublic registration is required prior to downloading the e-book. A small price to pay.
