Paper: Digital Borders and Assets in National Cyber Resilience
A new think tank paper from BinaryFirefly
The inaugural paper from BinaryFirefly has been published titled Digital Borders and Assets in National Cyber Resilience for which the preface is:
Governments produce quantified comparators both with itself and others often periodically to show progress against stated policy objectives. We suggest that for Governments to be effective in their cyber resilience objectives they need to be able to define where their digital borders begin and end as well those digital assets which comprise their national asset register both in and out of country across Government, Academia and the Private Sector.
In the context of cyber risk, the assets that comprise a country can be seen as analogous to the assets that comprise an organisation. Being able to define and identify such assets is considered a fundamental requirement to cyber hygiene in contemporary governance. Similarly there have been calls and proposals for the US to have a Bureau of Cyber Statistics and the UK to have an Office of National Statistics of Cyber. We suggest for such organisations to be effective would similarly require definition and identification of assets.
This paper explores the considerations around how the digital borders and assets that comprise a country may be defined.
