The relative advantage between attackers and defenders in cyberspace has been the subject of vigorous debate. I argue that the debate should be resolved in favor of cyber attackers, who possess freedom of maneuver to invalidate security assumptions required by modern digital systems. Using the recent “LogoFail” exploit and the 2020 SolarWinds hack, the attacker’s ability to invalidate security assumptions is explored. The limitations of current U.S. cyber strategy are then examined through the lens of attacker advantage in cyberspace. While restraint in the conduct of offensive cyberspace operations is noble, attacker advantage in cyberspace presents challenges in preparing for future conflict.

What lessons can the DOD learn from cyber conflict in the Russia-Ukraine war? While the conflict continues, we can still extract four lessons that the US should incorporate into its planning for conflict. First, cyber will continue to grow in importance and operational impact in warfare. Second, Cyber has a large skill and resource barrier and therefore must be built up and resourced in advance of conflict. Third, the private sector, non-state actors, and vigilantes will play a more direct role in wartime activities than in the past. Fourth, we must assist allies in developing capacity for cyber operations.

With the ubiquitous spread of internet connectivity, the influence of what our Reservists and National Guard members do through their Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA) responsibilities and their support to homeland emergency response can and will influence perception of the American people. What can planners and commanders do to seize the initiative through information operations during these actions?
