Cyber Warfare As technology has grown exponentially within the past fifty years, cyber crime becomes a growing worry for those working to create international security. As the internet becomes more widespread and reliable, the amounts of attacks from those trying to terrorize or censor the web have been growing too. Currently, the situation within many of these nations are that many states create infrastructure throughout the web, with government files, banks and other important data being stored in secure servers. As cyber-attacks continue to destroy, manipulate and damage data within nations, the development of more secure technology is necessary. At first warfare was mostly thought of as fronts comprised of troops heading on against one another. Eventually, technology grew to incorporate the infantry with more mobility and defense, through tanks and aircraft. However, warfare grew to new heights as mechanisms became digitized. Many objects or gadgets that in the past had simple functions are becoming more connected through computers and networks. Although this has evolved into our modern world technology, it has created vulnerabilities of new forms of warfare, known as cyber warfare. Although there are not many documented cases of cyber warfare, with cyber espionage and sabotage being relatively new concepts, nation have created and funded many government sectors to begin focusing on cyber security. With more governments being armed with technology to defend intelligence and…
Summer Research Paper:
The impact of trench warfare and advanced weaponry in World War 1 was massive and very destructive. It destroyed many families, town, and countries since it had a great power of effect on its target. When soldiers left to go to war they expected lush battlefields and valiant fighting, instead they got dirty, unhygienic trenches with battles playing out for months to year on end in an uneasy stale mate. Trench warfare was horrific and the ongoing effects as a result were…
Rail Transport and Chemical Warfare
Rail transport is one of the oldest forms of transportation that is still in use today. Rail transport offers a means of conveyance for passengers and goods by way of wheeled vehicles running on tracks. The oldest form of rail transport can be dated all the way back to the 6th century B.C.. The received credit for this invention is Periander, who was also known as one of the Seven Sages of Greece…

Hacking and Cyber Security
The effectiveness of Cyber Security mostly depends on the construction in design, development and operation of the cyber system. Many of the software we have now are still poorly engineered that getting access can be done so easily by those who know their ways around the system. As stated by Edward Amoroso CITATION…
Justification of Drone Warfare: Limiting Evil
It was ten years ago, February 4, 2002, that the CIA first used the unmanned Predator drone in a targeted killing in Afghanistan (The Nation 2012). Since that day, there has been large controversy (foreign and domestic) on the justification of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). It is crucial to look beyond public opinion and to begin rationally looking at data of different alternatives in warfare. Analyzing the elements of war and drone technology…
Retail Terror: Cyber Breaches
Since the beginning of 2014 there has been a new threat to both retailers and consumers alike. This threat has been the rise of the cyber breach. A cyber breach is when a hacker works their way into a retailer’s server and steals vital customer information like credit card numbers and social security numbers. While it is not sold on the shelves or included on the receipt retailers like Target and Home Depot are selling piece of mind that their payment information…
Looking into the future of warfare, all the advances in technology may
even replace the need of soldiers in the battlefield with drones and robots thus
possibly replacing MAN in the battlefield itself.
Context when Your slide comes:
Changes in the nature of warfare profoundly
shape both the manner in which the state is organized and the law itself. We Are
now indroducing robots/drones into warfare thus possibly limiting the amount of
caualties in war.
These drones range in size from tiny eightpound robots to the…
Assessing the Risks of Cyber Terrorism, Cyber War and Other Cyber Threats:
James A. Lewis
Center for Strategic and International Studies
Cyber-warfare conjures up images of information warriors unleashing vicious attacks
against an unsuspecting opponent’s computer networks, wreaking havoc and paralyzing
nations. This a frightening scenario, but how likely is it to occur? What would the
effects of a cyber attack be on a potential opponent?
Cyber attacks, network security and information…
Chapter 1 Assignment – Beyond the Book
In the past, cyber-warfare was a fictional concept presented in movies and TV shows. A recent example includes the action thriller Blackhat (2015,) where the FBI teams up with China to locate cyber-criminals that have hacked a Hong Kong nuclear plant and the Mercantile Trade Exchange in Chicago. Unfortunately, cyber-warfare is more than just a fictional concept. Today, there is more and more evidence that some countries are using state sponsored…
Hybrid Warfare or Asymmetric Warfare?
To have a discussion on hybrid warfare, we need to have a clear idea of what are the differences between conventional and hybrid warfare are. Conventional warfare is a nonnuclear conflict with rules of engagement formed by an agreement or compact. These rules for conventional warfare are spelled out by the Law of War and cover acceptable weapons, treatment of prisoners, torture, surrender, and much more. Unconventional is best described as guerilla and covert…
War & Society in Europe Midterm
There were a number of conditions that would lead to the emergence of “feudal warfare” in the early Middle Ages and there would be an equal number that would lead to its decline in the later middle ages as well yet to find the meaning of “feudal warfare” one has to look first at where this notion came from, and that was Feudalism.
Feudalism was a contrasting system dealing with political and military relationships existing among members of the higher…
