Summary : Nation State conflict in the 21st Century has evolved and morphed from being purely kinetic and physical as represented by a variety of low and medium intensity wars to one in which we are all now involved as unwilling participants. The current battlefield is the digital realm where there is little distinction between combatants and non-combatants. Traditionally there are laws of armed conflict in the physical world yet in this new world of cyber warfare no such digital rules of engagement exist. The "Rise of a Cybered Westphalian Age"should be a pre-requisite for all information security professionals and during Bill Hagestad\'s session as he will take conference delegates on a tour of various nation state cyber warfare preparedness activities and the seemingly endless paradigm which is now known as cyber warfare in the 21st century.
