Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


According to the United States Intelligence chiefs’ joint statement at a hearing on foreign cyber threats by the US Senate Armed Services Committee, protecting critical infrastructure will become an increasingly complex national security challenge since cyber threats are becoming increasingly diverse and sophisticated. In the early 2000s, it became increasingly evident to the US government and military that the weapons of the past are less useful in the contemporary conflicts in which the United States is involved. In response to new security challenges, in mid-2009, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates directed the commander of US Strategic Command to establish a sub-unified Command. Donald Trump’s administration promoted a more aggressive approach and offensive actions. On September 20, 2018, Donald Trump’s administration released the United States’ first fully articulated cyber strategy in 15 years.
