HYLAND measures across existing regional and security alliances such as the GCC and NATO. Areas for cooperation could include: information sharing to gain improved situational awareness for network defense; the evolution of a joint approach to concepts and doctrine; and better incident management capability and resilience arrangements across security and regional alliances. Conclusions Military use of cyberspace is already a reality and is likely to grow in importance over the coming decades. Military operations may include network defense, intelligence gathering, morale operations and cyberattacks. Attacks will be conducted via malicious software ("cyberweapons), infiltrating a supply chain or by using people (potentially the greatest vulnerability as our understanding of human behavior in cyberspace is still rudimentary). "High-impact" cyber-weapons of great sophistication have yet to deliver strategic effect. However, the scale of the proliferation and deployment of "low-impact," relatively unsophisticated cyber-weapons run the risk of corroding wider international relations. e traditional "stove-piped" model of security is no longer effective. Good IT security is critical, but needs to be incorporated into an holistic security framework that emphasizes education and effective incident management. International action looks unlikely to deliver arms control or regulation of cyber-weapons in the near future, but regional alliances and similar partnerships may help improve the effectiveness of cyber-defense.
