Cyberwarfare can be used as part of total war, to complement conventional warfare, as a standalone means of aggression short of kinetic warfare or as an asymmetric weapon by which to win without fighting. In the opinion of ancient Chinese military writer Sun Tzu: “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
Canada’s military says it needs to upgrade its defences against cyberattacks, documents released by the Department of National Defence read.
The documents, released by the department earlier this month, detail a significant and long-term project to give military brass better “situational awareness” of cyber space, guard against attacks, and “respond” to “advanced threats.”
The push for stronger online defences comes as Canada and NATO allies are adapting military doctrine to address the growing role of cyber operations in modern warfare.
