              Adopting a multidisciplinary perspective, this book explores the key challenges associated with the proliferation of cyber capabilities. Over the past two decades, a new man-made domain of conflict has materialized. Alongside armed conflict in the domains of land, sea, air, and s...pace, hostilities between different types of political actors are now destined to take place in cyberspace. Most analysts agree that few state actors have already made use of computer network operations (CNO) - as did presumably Russia during the war with Georgia in 2008 and the United States and Israel in their attempt to counter the Iranian nuclear program in 2010 - and few experts doubt that the future will witness much more advanced and far-reaching efforts to utilize the so-called fifth domain during armed conflict. The current volume adopts a three-pronged approach and posits two general research questions. The same questions are asked along the (I) theoretical, (II) strategic, (III) ethical and legal dimensions of cyber conflict: 'What are the major implications of cyber conflict?' And 'What sorts of challenges will cyber conflict give rise to?' The aim of the book is to provide an introduction to the cyber-conflict issue from various perspectives and disciplines. While the majority of other books on the market provide perspectives from a strategic studies, a legal or a theoretical angle, this volume will bring together contributions from various disciplines in one single volume. The individual chapters map out the different scholarly and political positions associated with various key aspects of cyber conflict. The goal is thus not to present definitive and empirically tested answers to the questions introduced above, but rather to identify, enhance and nuance our understanding of these key questions. This book hence brings together existing material on the topic from different disciplines to move the debate on. By asking important strategic questions on the theoretical, strategic, e

              Cybersecurity Discourse in the United States: Cyber-Doom Rhetoric and Beyond
               

              Cybersecurity Discourse in the United States: Cyber-Doom Rhetoric and Beyond (Hardback)

              This book provides a critical appraisal of cyber-doom rhetoric that begins to fill the gaps in our knowledge of why, how, and with what effects such rhetoric is used in U.S. cyber-security discourse. In the U.S. cyber security debate, it is common for policymakers, military leade...rs, news media, and others to deploy frightening cyber-doom scenarios when making the case for action on cyber security. Such scenarios involve fictional tales of cyber attack resulting in mass destruction or disruption. Some even contemplate total economic, social, or civilizational collapse. Though there is no doubt that we face serious cyber security challenges, few if any cyber attacks to date have come close to causing the kinds of damage often contemplated in cyber-doom rhetoric. The Director of National Intelligence told Congress on two separate occasions in 2015 that such scenarios are unlikely and do not reflect the real cyber-security threat. Nonetheless, policymakers, military leaders, and others continue to warn of hypothetical cyber Pearl Harbors and cyber 9/11s or even claim that data breaches resulting in no loss of life or physical destruction are analogous to Pearl Harbor or 9/11. Why does this rhetoric persist in public policy discourse and whya do so many individuals use such rhetoric in the first place?a Does this confusion of fiction and fact even matter? If so, how can we move beyond the rhetoric of cyber-doom? This book answers these questions. The work argues that cyber-doom rhetoric is not entirely unique but is, rather, the latest manifestation of longstanding fears of technology-out-of-control in Western societies, as well as a tradition of blurring distinctions between fact and fiction when thinking about and responding to new technologies. From this perspective, the book argues that the specific fears expressed in cyber-doom rhetoric are unrealistic and that relying on them to frame our thinking about and motivate a response to the threats we do face is counterpr

              This book offers a detailed exploration of three examples of humanitarian uses of new technology, employing key theoretical insights from Foucault. We are currently seeing a humanitarian turn to new digital technologies: biometrics, remote sensing, surveillance drones, etc. Throu...ghout history we have seen examples of how humanitarian actors have introduced new technologies into various types of relief work: medical assistance, food aid, refugee registration. Although intentions have been good, humanitarian uses of new technology have not always had caring effects for those at the receiving end. In contradiction with humanitarian ideals, these practices have sometimes exposed subjects of assistance to additional risks and insecurities. Engaging with key insights from the work of Foucault, this book produces an analytical framework that opens up the analysis to details of power and control at the level of materiality that are often ignored in liberal histories of war and modernity. Whereas Foucault details the design of prisons, factories and schools, this book uses these key insights about the details of power embedded in material design, but shifts the attention to the technologies and attending forms of power that have been experimented with in the three humanitarian endeavours presented in the book. In doing so, the book provides new information about aspects of liberal humanitarianism that contemporary critical analyses have largely neglected. This book will be of interest to students of humanitarian studies, peace and conflict studies, critical security studies, and IR in general.

              This book examines the European governance of emerging security technologies. The emergence of technologies such as drones, autonomous robotics, artificial intelligence, cyber and biotechnologies has stimulated worldwide debates on their use, risks, and benefits in both the civil...ian and the security-related fields. This volume examines the concept of 'governance' as an analytical framework and tool to investigate how new and emerging security technologies are governed in practice within the European Union (EU), emphasizing the relational configurations among different state and non-state actors. With reference to European governance, it addresses the complex interplay of power relations, interests, and framings surrounding the development of policies and strategies for the use of new security technologies. The work examines varied conceptual tools to shed light on the way diverse technologies are embedded in EU policy frameworks. Each contribution identifies actors involved in the governance of a specific technology sector, their multi-level institutional and corporate configurations, and the conflicting forces, values, ethical, and legal concerns, as well as security imperatives and economic interests. This book will be of much interest to students of science and technology studies, security studies and EU policy.

              This book examines cyberspace superiority in nation-state conflict from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. This volume analyses superiority concepts from the domains of land, maritime, and air to build a model that can be applied to cyberspace. Eight different cybers...pace conflicts between nation states are examined and the resulting analysis is combined with theoretical concepts to present the reader with a conclusion. Case studies include the conflict between Russia and Estonia (2007), North Korea and the US and South Korea (2009) and Saudi Arabia and Iran in the Aramco attack (2012). The book uses these case studies to examine cyberspace superiority as an analytical framework to understand conflict in this domain between nation-states. Furthermore, the book makes the important distinction between local and universal domain superiority, and presents a unique model to relate this superiority in all domains, as well as a more detailed model of local superiority in cyberspace. Through examining the eight case studies, the book develops a rigorous system to measure the amount of cyberspace superiority achieved by a combatant in a conflict, and seeks to reveal if cyberspace superiority proves to be a significant advantage for military operations at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels. This book will be of much interest to students of cyber-conflict, strategic studies, national security, foreign policy and IR in general.

              This book is a multi-disciplinary analysis of cyber warfare, featuring contributions by leading experts from a mixture of academic and professional backgrounds. Cyber warfare, meaning interstate cyber aggression, is an increasingly important emerging phenomenon in international r...elations, with state-orchestrated (or apparently state-orchestrated) computer network attacks occurring in Estonia (2007), Georgia (2008) and Iran (2010). This method of waging warfare - given its potential to, for example, make planes fall from the sky or cause nuclear power plants to melt down - has the capacity to be as devastating as any conventional means of conducting armed conflict. Every state in the world now has a cyber-defence programme and over 120 states also have a cyber-attack programme. While the amount of literature on cyber warfare is growing within disciplines, our understanding of the subject has been limited by a lack of cross-disciplinary engagement. In response, this book, drawn from the fields of computer science, military strategy, international law, political science and military ethics, provides a critical overview of cyber warfare for those approaching the topic from whatever angle. Chapters consider the emergence of the phenomena of cyber warfare in international affairs; what cyber-attacks are from a technological standpoint; the extent to which cyber-attacks can be attributed to state actors; the strategic value and danger posed by cyber conflict; the legal regulation of cyber-attacks, both as international uses of force and as part of an on-going armed conflict, and the ethical implications of cyber warfare. This book will be of great interest to students of cyber warfare, cyber security, military ethics, international law, security studies and IR in general.

              This book investigates the intersection of terrorism, digital technologies and cyberspace. Recent years have witnessed a small, but growing, collection of book length publications dealing with cyber-terrorism or cognate issues. These existing books mostly take a single perspectiv...e: technological, political, or sociological. In contrast, Terrorism Online utilises a multi-disciplinary framework to provide a borader introduction to debates and developments that have largely been conducted in isolation to date. Drawing together a range of key academics in the field, this edited volume is organised around three broad themes. First, how - and why - do terrorists engage with the Internet, digital technologies and cyberspace? Second, what threat do these various activities pose, and to whom? And, third, how might these activities be prevented, deterred or responded to? Exploring these themes, the book engages with a range of contemporary case studies and different forms of terrorism: from lone-actor to state-based. The book's engagement with questions of law, politics, technology and beyond is intended to offer a holistic approach to this subject matter, and provides the unique selling point of the book. This book will be of interest to students of cyberterrorism, security studies and IR in general.

              This book documents and explains civil defence preparations for national cyber emergencies in conditions of both peace and war. The volume analyses the escalating sense of crisis around state-sponsored cyber-attacks that have emerged since 2015, when the United States first decla...red a national emergency in cyber space. It documents a shift in thinking in the USA, from cooperative resilience-oriented approaches at national level to more highly regulated, state-led civil defence initiatives. Although the American response has been mirrored in other countries, the shift is far from universal. Civil defence strategies have come into play but the global experience of that has not been consistent or even that successful. Containing contributions from well-placed scholars and practitioners, this volume reviews a selection of national experiences (from the USA, India, China, Estonia, and Finland) and a number of key thematic issues (information weapons, alliance coordination, and attack simulations). These demonstrate a disconnect between the deepening sense of vulnerability and the availability of viable solutions at the national level. Awareness of this gap may ultimately lead to more internationally oriented cooperation, but the trend for now appears to be more conflictual and rooted in a growing sense of insecurity. This book will be of much interest to students of cyber-security, homeland security, disaster management and International Relations, as well as practitioner and policy-makers.

              This book investigates the goals and policy aspects of cyber-security education in the light of escalating technical, social and geopolitical challenges. The past ten years has seen a tectonic shift in the social and political significance of cyber-security education. Once the pr...eserve of small groups of dedicated educators and industrial professionals, the subject is now on the frontlines of geopolitical confrontation and business strategy, and global shortages of talent have created pressures on corporate and national policy for workforce development. This book offers an updated approach to the security education problem as we enter the next decade of technological disruption and political threats. The contributors include scholars and education practitioners from leading research and education centres in Europe, North America and Australia. This book provides essential reference points for education policy on the new social terrain of security in cyberspace and aims to reposition global debates on what education for security in cyber space can and should mean. This book will be of interest to students of cyber-security, cyber education, and public policy generally, as well as practitioners and policymakers.
