Cyber Doctrine

On 29 June 2011, the Institute for Security & Resilience Studies published "Cyber Doctrine: towards a coherent evolutionary framework for learning resilience".

ISRS Chair, Rt Hon Lord Reid of Cardowan, said:


"Cyber doctrine is the over-arching framework of principles that are urgently needed to fill the gaps between international laws and treaties that are failing to keep up with the pace of change in cyber space.

"First we have to accept that we cannot control cyber space. Then we have to recognise that learning, entrepreneurialism and the capacity to constantly innovate are the fundamental preconditions for gaining the best from cyber space while minimising the dangers."


The report warns that without urgent action the UK could lose its reputation for reliable networks and its position as a location of choice for global technology corporations, becoming reliant on systems over which it would have little or no influence.
