Cyber Warfare: The Newest Battlefield
An engine of innovation and communication, the Internet connects billions of people, helps deliver goods and services globally, and brings ideas and knowledge to those who would otherwise lack access. The United States relies on the Internet and the systems and data of cyberspace for a wide range of critical services. This reliance leaves us vulnerable in the face of a real and dangerous cyber threat, as state and non-state actors plan to conduct disruptive and destructive cyber-attacks on the networks of our critical infrastructure and steal U.S. intellectual property to undercut our technological and military advantage.
