Abstract

This paper aims to advise American policy makers on a correct course of action regarding the advent of cyber warfare. Cyber-attacks have become ubiquitous in the 21st century and pose a direct threat to the safety of American interests abroad and domestically. Beginning with an analysis of the history and lessons from past cyber conflicts this paper moves on to proscribe a set of actions to protect American security in the 21st century. We conclude that the current legal framework for evaluating cyber-attacks needs to be re-framed in a manner more conducive to American interests.
