In, "Conflicting Policy Presumptions about Cybersecurity: Cyber-Prophets, -Priests, -Detectives, and -Designers, and Strategies for a Cybered World," U.S. Naval War College professor Chris Demchak examines the strategic assumptions of cyberspace and the nature of the cyber threat. Dr. Demchak identifies a set of “cyber communities” and recommends a way ahead to reach consensus on organizing the U.S. government’s response to cyber challenges.
