Cyber warfare: New type or warfare or additional element of conventional warfare

This article employs a comparative analysis of approaches to the topic of cyber warfare, and then considers the perspectives of further developments in the cyber warfare, namely if there are possibilities for cyber to become a separate branch of war-waging, or, if it will remain only an additional element of conventional warfare, as it has already become with the advent of the so-called “hybrid warfare”. This analysis represents a contribution to the discussion on the challenges of cyber in the future, providing a better insight into the potential challenges for our state in the present day and in the near future.
