"National Security Experts Plan for Wars Whose Targets and
Weapons Are All Digital."
Is the threat real, or is this just another way to win
Military and intelligence officials believe that enemy
nations, terrorists and criminal groups either already
have the capability to mount information warfare strikes
or soon will. Criminals are quickly progressing beyond
the vandalism and petty theft associated with teen-aged
hackers and into robbery and extortion schemes ranging
up to millions of dollars, corporate executives and
private investigators say.
Others reply that the worst threats mentioned are mostly
speculation. "Information warfare is a risk to our
nation's economy and defense," said Martin Libicki, a
senior fellow at the National Defense University. "But
I believe we will find ways to cope with these attacks,
adjust and shake them off, just as we do to natural
disasters like hurricanes."
