dc.description.abstractThis discussion rests on the underlying principle that total cyber security is, was, and always will be unachievable. From its very inception, the idea of an information architecture relying on universal connectivity has been fundamentally insecure, and the proliferation of connected devices on a global scale raises the possibility of inevitable future catastrophe; the 'Internet of Things That Go Bump In The Night'. We cannot turn the clock back technologically, and legislation enacted by politicians who are overwhelmingly ignorant of what they are legislating about seems to over little chance of a positive outcome. The argument outlined here seeks to do three things: 1. Present the current nature of the cyber domain as an inevitably expanding threat landscape; 2. Discuss ways in which the anarchic nature of the domain may in fact have defensive and offensive benefits; 3. Suggest possible strategies for threat mitigation, which do not work by attempting to curb the flexible and interconnected nature of the cyber domain.en
