If you ever feel like United States does not take care seriously of the cyberattacks, you are probably wrong. In fact, one brigade commander stated it is the number 1 thread for them.

Basically, explanations said that cyberattacks could bring intelligence information to the enemy, but as well positions of soldiers in the battlefield, and probably what orders the mission control sent to the soldiers on the battlefield. They also need to unify better for having a network that works with coalition and joint forces.

As well, the problem of security almost enforce many of non-wireless communication, because enforcing the security of wireless communication is hard. Meanwhile, it brings out also a challenging task when mounting the servers: you don't have much time but you have many cables to plug.

As well, because some people have to stay behind a computer screen to watch attacks, they have to find solutions to still train solider to be physically ready for any kind of combat, even if usually they are on their computer. Basically, being less physically ready means more injured people.

Do you think countries are enough serious about cyberattacks? Doesn't the F-35 with its millions line of code proves that computer is important for the battlefield now?

Cyber attacks are obviously a major threat to any country and while it's unusual for a prominent figure to come out and mention them, I'm sure they are always trying to limit any threat they are made aware of.
