Cyber Warfare explores the battlefields, participants and the tools and techniques used during today's digital conflicts. The concepts discussed in this book will give those involved in information security at all levels a better idea of how cyber conflicts are carried out now, how they will change in the future and how to detect and defend against espionage, hacktivism, insider threats and non-state actors like organized criminals and terrorists. Every one of our systems is under attack from multiple vectors-our defenses must be ready all the time and our alert systems must detect the threats every time.

Although it may not always be feasible to completely sever the flow of outgoing data, and in some cases may be outright harmful to do

Given today’s technologies a system could even be made to function at a minimal level from a laptop and a data connection from a cell phone. In such cases, a combination of physical and logical attacks may be required to completely take a system offline. Logical Attacks can have Physical Effects Just as physical attacks can affect logical systems, logical attacks can affect physical
