Are We Ready for the Next Cyber War?

In 2020, worldwide there was a new cyber attack every 39 seconds, 2,200 daily. Global spending on cyber security is expected to reach $1 trillion by the end of 2021. It is already an obvious fact that cyber security plays a crucial role in the broader threat landscape of a nation. Before, nations knew exactly who their main adversaries were, their intentions and capabilities. Today, the threat environment is way more complicated and covert, filled with different actors and ever-changing. Even though time has shown that countries with strong state institutions succeed better at using the advantages of cyber, having a basic survival instinct can also go a long way. Armenians love to compare themselves with Israel in many areas. Indeed, the similarities are obvious: a long history, unique culture, language and religion, sad historical experiences and a lot of lessons to learn. However, with all its problems, Israel managed to learn its lesson and adopt a unique approach to forming its security culture. Of course, it is also important to have good friends all around the world through active diplomacy, as today no one person, agency or country can manage cyber security by itself. In the case of Armenia, however, we see no coordinated strategy, no clear action plan to jump several steps ahead of our direct and indirect adversaries.
