Lately, it seems that cybersecurity catches growing intention in most organizations-government agencies, defence entities, enterprises and even SMEs. The rapid evolution on technology in the past 3 decades brought the cyber domain into every business or even every home or pocket in every developed country around the globe.

 But what is cyber? What are the unique challenges that this dynamic domain fronts us with? How can senior management handle cyber conflicts or at least ask the right questions ?

The cyber space is a unique artificial domain in which most human phenomena are happening.
