Crucial Point CTO Bob Gourley perspectives used for context on cyber conflict:
The U.S. government has perhaps the world’s most powerful and sophisticated offensive cyberattack capability. This capability remains highly classified. But the New York Times has reported that the Bush administration used cyberattacks on insurgent cellphones and computers in Iraq, and that it approved a plan for attacks on computers related to Iran’s nuclear weapons program. And the government is surely doing much more. “We have U.S. warriors in cyberspace that are deployed overseas” and “live in adversary networks,” says Bob Gourley, the former chief technology officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency.
