ABSTRACT

Recently, a growing number of researchers have expanded the discussion of deterrence strategy to address a host of new cyber threats. South Korea’s allies and neighboring countries have begun to address terrorism beyond its conventional approach to cyber defense, from reactive to proactive, which may include international deterrence. South Korea should join this trend from passive to active approach to cyber terrorism, such as deterrence by denial and deterrence by punishment. Deterrence by denial is a strategy in which an adversary is physically prevented from acquiring a threatening technology, while deterrence by punishment is a strategy of last resort. Since it appears that deterrence by denial was not possible or has failed, the South Korean government should go beyond its passive attitude and develop timely and appropriate policies.
