Cyberpower & Global Security
Cyberpower is not about cybersecurity. Aside from all the obvious benefits of employing computers and network technology to compute, store, and transmit information, this course focuses on the exploitation of cyber insecurity to enable the attainment of state and non-state actors¿ strategic objectives. Although the technical and tactical capabilities required to conduct offensive cyber operations are well understood, less clear are how state and private actors link them to strategic objectives. This course provides students with an understanding of the impact cyber operations have on global security and statecraft.
