“We must learn to defend, delay, attack and manoeuvre in cyberspace, just as we might on the land, sea or air. Future wars will always include a cyber dimension and it could become the dominant form.” In the future, I don’t think state-to-state warfare will start in the way it did even 10 years ago, it will be cyber or banking attacks – that’s how I’d conduct a war if I was running a belligerent state or a rebel movement. It’s semi-anonymous and doesn’t risk people.” (Source: The Sunday Times.)
