15 major cyber making peace

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) has prepared a report in which the 15 major world cyber-holders listed. First place in the list departed USA.

In the framework of a two-year study, the authors of the report reviewed the possibilities of countries for seven criteria: strategy and doctrine; management, command and control; opportunities cyber drive; dependence on cyberspace; cybersecurity; Global leadership in cyberspace issues, as well as offensive cybernetic potential.

The United States became the only country that took first place in all criteria. The countries of the “second level” have advantages only in a number of categories. These countries included Russia, Australia, Canada, China, France, Israel and the United Kingdom, writes the Russian publication “View” with reference to C4isRnet.

“Third level”, including India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, North Korea and Vietnam, has a strong or potential advantage in some categories, but has significant drawbacks in others.

From the report it follows that even China will be able to be equal to the United States for cyber vessels no earlier than ten years. The rest of the countries – and later.

The International Institute for Strategic Studies is funded by funds, monopolies, individuals and organizations of the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Japan and other countries. Created in 1958 and first studied issues of preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and arms control. Now the range of problems is much wider: this is the military-economic potential of states, military doctrines and the state of the armed forces of the countries of the world. Works with the ministries of defense of NATO countries.
