Computer Crime Central

Syndicated columnist Austin Bay, as read in the Washington Times earlier this year, questioned the developing recognition - lack of distinction really - between computer crime and cyberwarfare.

Explored earlier on this blog, Bay cites the Estonian (who blamed Russia, which Russia denied) attacks as an example of a wired society suffering organized attacks.

Bay goes on to bring in articles from last September on Strategy Page and the Financial Times that link another alleged culprit, China.

A quick check (keywords: Cyberspace Warriors) to USA Today for an article in the same timeframe, yielded a virtual library from a multiciplity of more recent sources on U.S. preparations in response to real or perceived threats from these two nations.

Local interests may be directed to the Pacific Northwest National Security Forum, scheduled for June 3 in Tacoma, for a more up-to-date look at this issue.
