A cyberwar requires years of planning but a quick execution to minimize the target's adaptive behavior to heal the damages. The purpose of a strategic cyberwar is to change policy and influence adversarial societies.

During the conference Cyber Security for Government 2013, an IDGA event in Washington D.C. August 12 - 14, Dr. Jan Kallberg will summarize and disseminate his latest research and writing in how offensive strategic cyber war can be conducted and the potentially viable options.
The presentation is based on his last year's scholarly work about offensive cyber operation published in IEEE Security and Privacy, Joint Forces Quarterly, Strategic Studies Quarterly, IEEE IT Professional, and several other venues.

Dr. Kallberg says: "The cyber warfare concepts and abilities of the early years will continue to evolve over the decades to come. Developments tend to take longer than first anticipated not only
because of technological hindrances, but also due to a path-dependent culture favoring
earlier methods and a natural instinct to prefer what is known", and continues, "which makes the nontraditional thinking very powerful".
