Enduring Challenges for Cyber Strategy


Published April 4, 2023

One cyberspace norm that has emerged is that cyber operations do not lead to violent retaliation. Another is that it is inappropriate to target civilian infrastructure. An enduring challenge cyberspace presents is not the physical damage it can do but the destruction of trust between the public and private sectors.

Discussion Questions:

  1. How can the trust between the public and private sectors be rebuilt, and what steps should be taken to prevent future breaches of this trust in the cyber realm?
  2. What other strategies can be employed to reduce the likelihood of cyber-attacks, and how can organizations work together to prevent cyber-attacks from occurring?
