ABSTRACT

As the cyberspace is recognized as the national security domain such as air, sea, and space, countries are growing their efforts to expand their influences in cyberspace and cyber capabilities targeting the integrity of information resources in an attempt to influence the political decision making process at the state level. It is assumed that Russian interference in the 2016 US election took place as a part of this effort. The US government imposes sanctions on Russia through legislative and administrative measures in conjunction with investigations of intelligence and investigate agencies and parliamentary commissions of inquiry. This paper aims to gain insight of national countermeasures against strategic cyber attacks from other countries by reviewing US countermeasures of the Russian interference in the 2016 US election case. This paper examines the facts centering on reports published by US intelligence agencies and examine the domestic measures and derive national security strategic implications on strategic cyber attacks from foreign governments.
