The risk of computer crime has become a global issue affecting almost all countries.

The first step is to understand what risks, threats, and vulnerabilities currently exist in your environment. The second step is to learn as much

In the past 30 years, there has been phenomenal growth in the area of data
communications, to say the least. During the Vietnam War, one of my duty
stations was on an island in the China Sea. I was part of a Signal Intelligence
group, intercepting and decoding wartime communications traffic. We did our
best to decode and analyze the information we intercepted, but there were
many times when the help of a high-end (at that time) mainframe computer
system was required.

As our society grows ever more reliant on computers, so it also becomes more vulnerable to computer crime. Cyber attacks have been plaguing computer users since the 1980s, and computer security experts are predicting that smart telephones and other mobile devices will also become the targets of cyber security threats in the future.
The chances are growing that the United States will find itself in a crisis in cyberspace, with the escalation of tensions associated with a major cyberattack, suspicions that one has taken place, or fears that it might do so soon. The genesis for this work was the broader issue of how the Air Force should integrate kinetic
