DETERRING CYBER ATTACKS: INFORMING STRATEGIES AND DEVELOPING OPTIONS FOR U.S. POLICY, National Research Council, Forthcoming
American cyber deterrence policy suffers from an organizational deficit. The organizational deficit is two-fold: It is, first and foremost, a lack of structures for the making of a comprehensive policy and a lack of organizational cohesiveness in driving solutions forward in a way that includes all relevant stakeholders. It is, secondarily, a lack of adequate structures for implementing the policy decisions that have been made and for auditing our success (or failure) in doing so. The paper explores existing organizational structures and suggests issues for future consideration in the crafting of a US cyber deterrence policy.
