marinomsat February 12,2015 I believe laws of cyber war need to be put into place as guidelines for different countries. Evidence is proven of Chinese attacks on United states infastructure yet China only has to diene the accusations. But laws need to be put into place on what to do in these situations and how to act.
nbodykat February 13,2015 This video raises a good point. There is the problem countries are struggling with to define what is cyber warfare and what constitutes an act of war when it comes to a cyber attack? Sometimes it's hard to determine who the attacker is in order to retaliate. How do you trace an attack back to the originator and can you really determine the attacker was the originator or that someone else didn't set them up to be the fall guy. Or maybe I've been watching too many movies with conspiracy theories. Anyway there is clearly a problem that the international community must fix and that is to define what is cyber warfare, what constitutes an attack, and when can a nation legally retaliate against another entity for a cyber attack? We clearly need rules and laws for this so that there is a known line of what is legal and what isn't. The international community took the time to lay out the laws of war, the Geneva Convention, and what constitutes an act of war. Now they need to take those laws one step further by incorporating technology as well as other means of future weapons.
jczarnyat February 15,2015 A lot of good questions are raised by this video. For example the video asks who should be held responsible for a cyber attack. That question is not always black and white, and our current legal framework does not really support an answer. Really, we often do not know who to begin pointing the finger at. For example with the most recent Sony attack the US government is still piecing that together, and who knows if there will ever be a reliable answer. Instead of focusing on where to lay blame or how we can define the situation within a legal framework time would be better served focusing on cyber defense/stopping any attacks outright in the first place.
dmoravalat February 18,2015 It’s an interesting video showing intricate issues around crime computer actions. They called it “Cyber-War” when these crimes come from other places outside the attacked nation. However, I agree with some comments. Nations have to meet, analyze, and define what “Cyber-War” really means.
Ahmedat February 20,2015 i believe that we are in the middle of a cyber-war..it happens every day..i think there should a very strict international cyber crime rules that's applied to all countries on the other end we must know how to defend ourselves.
