Control and Ownership

  • Jacob G. Oakley


We have established various resource types involved in cyber warfare and their importance to the success of the warfighter and the effectiveness of commander and decision makers. We will now cover the concepts of resource control and resource ownership as well as their uniquely amplified impact in the cyber domain. The threats to resilience and mitigations to them covered in this chapter cover for the most part threats posed to cyber warfare resources by the operating environment and defensive capabilities of the enemy and industry security apparatus. Loss of resource control and ownership are exceedingly more dangerous to the mission at hand and to overall success of waging a cyber war and represent loss of capability containment and potential damage to innocent non-combatant individuals and systems. Loss of control and ownership also potentially lead to state-developed capabilities being brought to bear against itself or its allies by enemy targets.
