A Great Cyberwar Glossary

Dateline: 1 April 2010 (Note the date)

I came acorss a cyberwar glossary that deserves to be a classic lexicon, just like Ambrose Bierces' The Devil's Dictionary.

Read the whole document. I especially like the concluding section where Richard "Rick" Forno notes:

Cyberwarfare indeed is a concern  that must be addressed responsibly; however there is such a cacophony of ‘noise’ in public and private discourse on the subject that it is difficult for many to make sense of the actual cybersecurity issues we need to be thinking about as a Nation. Let’s burst the “cyber-bubble” and deal with the real issues, concerns, effects, and consequences of operating in the “cyber” domain instead of relying on and/or believing questionable analysis and dubious statistics presented in sensational reports, statements and oft-cited soundbites.

Better still, let’s all agree that if we want to be proactive in cybersecurity (or cyberwarfare protection) we must ensure our information assets not only are hardened and reinforced but designed with survivability and resiliency in the first place. Doing the former without the latter only will set us up to “lose” in the cyber domain. Our enemies recognize this and will act accordingly, so why don’t we?

Seriously, Amen to that!
