Towards a Cyberspace Legal Regime in the Twenty-First Century

The cyber world is embedded in all national security issues. The International legal regime for cyber laws faces challenges in how to respond to threats—for example, the laws of war are built around the concept of traditional warfare. Another remark is that civilian law enforcement agencies could be the first line of defense against cyber actions. This includes cyber warfare, information asymmetries, kinetic attack, SCADA systems, DDOS attack and lawfare. Moving forward, international legal instruments regarding cyberwar could clearly define the role of cyber systems in modern warfare. Countries should reaffirm the sanctity and strength of communications relay systems, as well as the strength and sanctity of navigational tools such as TACAN and GPS.
