Victor Vevera

National Institute for Research & Development in Informatics – ICI Bucharest


Cyberspace is characterized by lack of physical borders, dynamism and anonymity, generating both opportunities to develop knowledge-based information society, but also risks to its functioning.

Cyberwar is the most complex and multilateral form of attack on information, in order to gain information superiority. Its main goal is to ensure separation of the central leadership of the state concerned institutions and citizens.

Keywords: Cyberspace, Information warfare, cyber security, the culture of cyber security.
