Cyber Threats

Susan W. Brenner

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes why the nation-state monopolization of power arose and why it is eroding. As technology evolves in sophistication and pervasiveness, the impact of the virtual overlay cyberspace has given us will only become more profound. This creates the problem we now need to address: How can our social systems maintain order in a world in which the limitations of physical reality and the influence of territorial boundaries become increasingly irrelevant? It argues that our conceptual and operational approaches to the problem of maintaining order of whatever type are inextricably bound up with the strictures of physical reality and territorial sovereignty.

Keywords:   power, nation-state, cyberattacks, monopolization, virtual overlay cyberspace
