Understanding Cyber Conflict: 14 Analogies – Discussion Forum #3

In this discussion, we will look at Steven Miller’s commentary on whether our response to nuclear technology has any key lessons-learned to our current response to the overall cyber threat.

In no more than 400 words, please tell me where you feel some of Mr. Miller’s assertions are flawed. You may share some of the areas you agree with Mr. Miller, but I would like you to critically analyze his overall assertions.
