Cyber Warfare activity is aggressive in nature and is conducted by different entities. It is not reserved for governments and military entities or security forces only. This makes the cyber landscape a threatening and complex combat theatre with multiple attack vectors. After Land, Sea, Air, and Space, the ‘new’ Cyber Space is recognized as the fifth domain. It is in this 5th domain that Cyber Warfare, Cyber Defense, and Cyber Offense are conducted.
