Description/Abstract

In recent years, with the further development of technology, cyber-attacks have become even more prevalent in society. This research will examine the potential classification of cyberwarfare as a weapon of mass destruction and the way cyber threats and weapons can be used to enhance and degrade existing physical weapons of mass destruction. Additionally, this research will explore the economic impact cyberwarfare can have on an otherwise thriving country and the detrimental effect misinformation can have on governmental and military processes. With the continued hands-off approach that technology provides, unless cyberwarfare can be fully understood and effectively mitigated, a digital war is an eminent threat for the future.
