Recent advances in cyber have changed how the world lives, socializes, does business, communicates, and wages war. Everything is done online, from shopping, to banking, to collaborating on projects. As with all historic advances, cyber has become weaponized.
Cyber warfare is internet-based conflict involving politically motivated attacks on information and information systems. It is used by nation states, as well as non-state actors, such as terrorist groups, commercial organizations, political or ideological extremist groups, hacktivists, and transnational criminal organizations.
Some governments have made it an integral part of their overall military strategy, investing heavily in cyberwarfare capabilities. Cyber warfare attacks can disable official websites and networks, disrupt or disable essential services, steal or alter classified data, and cripple financial systems and other critical infrastructure.
It is the single greatest emerging threat to U.S. national security, and Assevero is preparing service offerings in support of emergent requirements at the U.S. Cyber Command and other U.S. government agencies engaged on the cyber battlefield.
