Cyber-attack could be the first strike in future wars

Tuesday 20 February 2018

There has been a call for global rules to minimise the impact of global cyber warfare on ordinary citizens.

United Nations Secretary General, Antonia Guterres, believes massive cyber-attacks could become the ‘first salvoes in future wars’.

Last week, Computerworld reported that 13 Russians and three Russian companies have been accused of ‘conducting a criminal and espionage conspiracy using social media to interfere in the 2016 US election’.

A group of NATO allies said last year they were drawing up cyber warfare principles to guide their militaries on what justifies deploying cyber-attack weapons more broadly, aiming for agreement by early 2019.
