ISIS International Affairs Forum on Privateering in Cyberspace: Should Patriotic Hacking Be Promoted as National Policy?

By Colonel Forrest HARE

Air Attaché
Embassy of the United States in Kuala Lumpur


Several countries have begun to consider an approach to cyberspace operations modeled of the actions of other states that have out-sourced the cyber operation components of their military and intelligence community. Russia and China, for example, have promoted “patriotic hacking” to support the efforts of their nations in preparation for a potential conflict, or even during one. In these countries the civilian hacker community has been leveraged to gather intelligence and create cyber effects that support conventional military operations and other coercive actions. Thought leaders and officials in other countries, countries with limited ability to generate a professional cyber force, have argued it is necessary to “fight fire with fire” and follow the leads of the Russians and Chinese. In effect, they propose it would be more efficient to similarly rely on patriotic hacking groups to achieve their desired objectives in cyberspace. But is it a sound national policy to do so? Though cyberspace and its many complexities have only become national security issues in recent decades, the arguments made here are not without historical precedence

ISIS International Affairs Forum on "Strategic Developments in South Asia"

By Dr Maria Sultan

Asian Strategic Stability Institute (SASSI) University


South Asia is the only region in the world where two independent nuclear weapons states with major security disagreements border each other - India and Pakistan - and sits astride a third - China. South Asia also is plagued by an increasingly deadly mixture of local, regional and international terrorist organisations. Furthermore, there are global transitions at play in the region including the growing defence and security collaboration between the US and India and likewise deeper cooperation between Pak-China and Russia. The impact of these transitions combined with the growing economic collaboration is likely to place South Asia centre stage and affect the global and strategic transition in Asia Pacific.

ISIS International Affairs Forum on "Terror Unleashed"


Irma Argüello
Founder and Chair
NPSGlobal Foundation


Terror Unleashed is a breakthrough report that estimates global and national impacts of a nuclear terrorist detonation. It intends to give simple responses to these essential questions: How would our lives be affected, if terrorists managed to detonate a small yield nuclear bomb in a capital city, anywhere in the world? To what extent, and in which way, would such an act change our present and future? How feasible is such an attack? The report has been developed by a high-level multidisciplinary Expert Group convened by the NPSGlobal Foundation for its project, the Latin American and Caribbean Leadership Network (LALN).
