Cyberwarfare encompasses the actions by any international organization to attack and try to cause damage to another nation's infrastructure, computers or information systems through computer viruses or denial-of-service (DOS) attacks. Cyberwarfare is also known as the use or affecting in a battlespace or warfare in the background of computers, online control systems (IoTs), and networks. It comprises both aggressive and distrustful operations relating to the danger of cyberattacks, espionage, and collateral/ other damage. There are controversy and argument over whether such operations can be termed as a "war". Transnational cyber-security is an increasingly persistent issue for leading national world powers. Existing professionals are not well-resourced to deal with the continuous change in the cybersecurity field, due to an absence of detailed knowledge in the field. The United States is not only just a gigantic target for these cyber-attacks but also a leading offender. Regardless of several cyberattacks also, the nation is failed to take the appropriate measures to defend against the modern age crime - cyberwarfare.
