Cyber operations

Offensive and defensive cyber (or digital) warfare, including the fields of computer network attack, computer network exploitation and computer network defense; as well as traditional electronic warfare (e.g. jamming) intended to deny an adversary use of their electronically dependent equipment through "non-kinetic" means -- that is, by fighting with electrons rather than explosives.
