Compared to conventional war, cyber warfare offers more precision. One can control exactly what and whom to target. Also, it\’s much less expensive.

This is why we will see more and more instances of cyber battles in future. This is a reminder that all businesses that are entrusted with protecting the privacy of personal information should be encrypting that data.

With an adversary as sophisticated and well-funded as a nation-state, it is inevitable that they will penetrate defenses and get to the data, but it is useless when encrypted.
