Cy­berspace strat­egy

The Washington Times Weekly - - Geopolitics -

The White House last week re­leased its strat­egy re­port for se­cur­ing cy­berspace, which calls for de­fend­ing against elec­tronic at­tacks from ter­ror­ists, cy­ber­crim­i­nals and for­eign states.

“We will seek to en­cour­age good ac­tors and dis­suade and de­ter those who threaten peace and sta­bil­ity through ac­tions in cy­berspace,” the re­port says. “We will do so with over­lap­ping poli­cies that com­bine na­tional and in­ter­na­tional net­work re­silience with vig­i­lance and a range of cred­i­ble re­sponse op­tions.”

Most of the strat­egy re­port is fo­cused on non­mil­i­tary cy­ber­se­cu­rity ef­forts, in­clud­ing diplo­macy and legal ac­tion. But the re­port also sets out the use of force to pro­tect U.S. net­works and ac­tion in cy­berspace against hos­tile ac­tors.
