Cyber Warfare

This article in financial times points to new type of warfare. Over fears of cyber attacks emanating from Russia, Estonia is planning to create a back up of all its digital files in UK. From voting to birth records almost everything is digitized in Estonia. I have earlier talked about hacking in elections in this blog. With the world rapidly digitizing from smart phones and cars to intelligent lighting for homes, cyber warfare is going to play a very important role in future. One could possibly argue that USA is called as a super power because of its superiority in military hardware. If one goes by this argument then the next superpower would be the country with most sophisticated cyber infrastructure. With its huge information technology industry India has required human resource to develop a robust cyber technology.
