ABSTRACT:

Is the “Age of Cyber War” at hand? This year, the fifth annual McAfee Virtual Criminology Report contemplates this question and others prompted by the fact that nation-states are arming themselves for the cyberspace battlefield. Since our 2007 report, when we last discussed the growing cyber threat to national security, there have been increasing reports of cyber attacks and network infiltrations that appear to be linked to nation-states and political goals. The most obvious of these attacks was the August 2008 cyber campaign against Georgia during the South Ossetia War. We decided it was time to further examine whether cyber warfare is now a part of human conflict that we should get used to seeing more often.
