Can we see the potential danger of cyber warfare enough to contain it before a cyber-Dresden occurs?
According to the White House, the NotPetya attack in 2017 caused “billions of dollars in damage across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. It was part of the Kremlin’s ongoing effort to destabilize Ukraine. . . . This was also a reckless and indiscriminate cyber attack that will be met with international consequences." So far there have been no public reprisals and there remains no international law on cyber warfare. A kinetic attack that damaging would have required an immediate proportional response.
