Cyber threats are fundamentally different from any other because they usually do not involve any kinetic, or in other words physical, effects or actions. Yet they nonetheless have a huge potential for damage because digital and networked enabled elements permeate our governments, infrastructure, businesses and even private lives.
Such threats are fundamentally borderless and global in nature. They can originate from absolutely any place in the world and target virtually any other place. In addition some attacks may originate in one country, use a botnet (a group of voluntarily or involuntarily remotely controlled computers, used to increase the effect of some types of cyber attacks) of computers in another (or even several other) country and target a server or website in a third. Thus effective solutions for such global threats have to in turn also be truly global.
