Post 040 - CIS 608

Evolution of Cyberweapons

The diagram above shows how cyberweapons are emerging in their capabilities. This is not only because of the importance and proliferation of the Internet and everything connected to it, it is also because cyberweapons are now possible and much cheaper than building a $2.2 billion stealth bomber.

Think about the proliferation of cyberweapons and compare it to the first chart from Mary Meeker, showing how mobile Internet traffic will overtake Internet traffic from desktop and laptop computers in the year 2013.

Can you see where all this is heading? If left unchecked, the world of those who can possibly threaten a world of people who have ubiquitous access to the Internet will continue to increase.
