The 9th instalment in the series designed for military and national security decision makers looks at the potential damage of limited or near total shutdown of internet during crisis, takedown of a major botnet, hacking the control system of a water plant in Florida and several other incidents. The CCDCOE report highlights takeaways for the senior leaders in order to be better prepared for emerging cyber threats.
In 2020 the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) launched a series of reports that highlight how threats, vulnerabilities and incidents in cyberspace can affect military organisations and their operations. The new edition in this recurring series highlights some of the topics that were at the forefront during 2020.
The primary audience for this series includes military decision makers at different levels of command. The selection of relevant news articles stems from the significance of the events from the perspective of the military, utilizing the CCDCOE’s multidisciplinary expertise and 360° approach to cyber defence.
