Computer World: Digital Security

Kraftwerk, Computer world [1981]

Events such as the 2017 NotPetya global cyberattack, of which Ukraine was the main victim, have raised awareness of security in the digital domain, while Russia’s war in Ukraine has once again introduced the spectre of malicious cyber activity as an inescapable component of state-on-state warfare. Russia and China may both regard cyber means as useful elements of hybrid confrontation, for example to disturb supply chains. Combatting these threats requires trusted connectivity, appropriate standards for digital security in the civil and military domains, and partnership between government and private ventures.
