michealb40at November 10,2016 This fight has been going on as long as the Internet existed. Only in the last 15 years or so has there been such a focus on cyberwarfare.
Taylorlouat November 18,2016 Cyber warfare is interesting because sometimes I feel like we view it as the completely novel reality, but in some ways it is like traditional war. Not to say that this isn't at all new ground and it should be trod carefully, but to mean that we can look not only to future in the solution but the past as well. What did we do as globally to combat biological warfare? Or how did we deal with the effects of the Industrial revolution? We created laws to adapt and governed them. This, I believe, is where cyber draws a familiarity with traditional crimes/wars because it does require amendments to current laws to match the situation. We are seeing that in some ways already such as with CFAA. Cyber is unique in that I think that there needs to be more international efforts and partnerships because unlike the real world the cyber world doesn't have borders. This is the real cinch in the matter that needs to be looked at more in international legislation or maybe even creating some type of cyber court.
Safiyahat November 21,2016 I agree with my fellow commentators here that this video may be a bit outdated since this is a current (not "future") issue and that it does raise some important questions. These are big questions but I believe the consequences of cyber-war highlighted in this video are realistic enough that the questions need to be asked and, more importantly, addressed. That said, it is my understanding that cyber crime laws are already being formed, be it as new laws or cyber-extensions of existing laws. With that in mind, this video seems more a reminder and push to invest further efforts on this front rather than to spur people on to be aware of and tackle a "new" concern.
mtorreyat November 29,2016 World leaders need to meet and decide how these las need to change in order to clarify the meaning of cyber war. There have been several attacks coming from China and Russia against the U.S. I don't think we have retaliated with enough force in order to make these governments stop. I am sure we have the technology and expertise to be able to retaliate but I am sure it is being reserved for bigger events.
samat December 04,2016 well, why we are debating on the definition at all. since we knew that cyber crime is real we have to go back to the source and make it harder to happen.
In the designing phase of any component the cyber security part should have to be integrated, therefore it will make hard to crack. On the other hand, the US government should have to be taken not only defensive act but also defensive action. Als need ti invest on cyber education
