Cyber: Boundless Nonsense

July 31, 2012 Added by:Don Eijndhoven

What is neutral behavior in the context of cyber warfare? Are you, as a neutral country obliged to drop all traffic between these two waring nations that crosses your networks?

Dutch MoD Releases Defense Cyber Strategy

June 29, 2012 Added by:Don Eijndhoven

What makes this interesting is that they are declaring that non-combatants may also be actively targeted.
