The UAE should have a strategy to defend itself against cyber crimes, 
cyber espionage and the possibility of a cyber war, an expert on 
security said.

"We should know who can and will attack us and we should be able to 
defend ourselves," Richard A. Clarke, who has served three consecutive 
US presidents as senior White House advisor, said in a lecture, "Cyber 
War: The next Threat to the UAE's National Security", at the Emirates 
Centre for Strategic Studies and Research.

Praising the UAE's role at the UN and GCC level against cyber threats, 
he said, "Diplomacy is one way to deal with these threats at the 
international level. Diplomacy and dialogue can be used to control them. 
The UAE has a great role to play in creating an international system of 
cyber teeth."

Every nation is vulnerable to cyber threat, including the UAE, since it 
is one of the most wired nations in the world, he said. Masdar's (Abu 
Dhabi Future Energy Company) work on alternativee energy, for instance, 
could be of interest to many and espionage in a modern society can come 
from anywhere in the world.
