Cyber-weapons: Legal and strategic aspects
Today’s cyber threat is arguably at its highest level of severity and shows no signs of diminishing. Among the issues arising in recent months have been the increased frequency of targeted malware tools to disrupt or spy on critical national infrastructure networks, as well as huge financial losses as a result of criminal attacks on private businesses.
The Cyber Defence implies sometime the aggregation of different competences and the solution of a wide range of issues:among them Legal and Strategic aspects are of paramount importance.
