The increased adoption of digital transformation has created new business models, products, opportunities, and high-end capabilities for competitive advantage and growth. Yet as our society becomes increasingly digital, the threats of digital attacks present a unique new front of warfare. Countries need to develop global cybersecurity strategies and countermeasures to tackle nation-state actors that seek to reshape geopolitical balance and undermine decades of economic gains.
