The International Committee of the Red Cross, is working on some interesting tech approaches to protect bits and bytes during war. Just as we would see the big Red Cross, or Red Crescent logos oin vehicles in physical locations, protecting hospitals and vehicles, they want to protect digital assets during cyberwar. It’s an interesting pproposial and concept that is starting out, but it’s also going to take time. Of course, there are those that may not respect the idea of bypassing critical resources to saving lives, but that’s something that will never fully be resolved. I wonder how many people would pause their ransomware code to check to see if they were impacting Red Cross computers.
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) wants to devise a digital equivalent of its emblems (the red cross and red crescent), to signify that certain digital resources are protected and must not be targeted during cyberwarfare.
