Cyberwar readiness: How the 'Big Five' prepare for cyber warfare and what smaller nations can emulate
Event, Research Seminar
Salle Goguel, 27 rue Saint Guillaume, 75007 Paris
The current research has identified, classified, and analyzed six means nations pursue cyber warfare. These include farming vulnerabilities, unearthing vulnerabilities, developing payload exploits, executing exploits, patching vulnerabilities, and storing an arsenal of ally and enemy vulnerabilities and possible exploits. Using a real-time case, the author shows how this aspect of the cyber replicator dynamic model is a strategic thinking tool for assessing or evaluating cyber policy decisions, proposing retaliatory strategic options, or offensive operations. The work is part of a three-phased process of developing the cyber replicator Dynamic model, a new measure for assessing cyber war readiness.
Ada Peter is a Professor, Digital Media, and International Security. She explores the processes of cyber weaponization, terrorism, and conflict to help governments make informed decisions about warfare in the fifth domain.
The seminar will be held on the Sciences Po campus, located 27 rue des Saints-Pères (Room Goguel), 75007 Paris.
