The modern warfare will definitely use cyber space to attack any government/country. Attackers can paralyse an economy by attacking vital servers/data centers which are used for almost all services such as water/electricity/gas/internet supply. We should keep in mind that modern societies are using IoT, AI, n-Society, e-Governement, etc., and the usage of these technologies are becoming more and more wide-spread.

Many developed countries maintain an army of “Cyber Soldiers” to monitor the net-traffic and identify malicious attacks targeting government networks. Sri Lanka has more than sufficient IT graduates who we can hire and train to be Cyber Soldiers.
