A 2010 survey of IT security experts stunned many by naming the United States, not China, as the most feared nation in cyberspace. When the Center for Strategic and International Studies issued that survey, the “most feared nation” view of the U.S. may have been fueled by media coverage of America’s preparation for cyber-warfare, said Stewart Baker, who oversaw the survey. “I’m not sure that’s entirely a realistic view of the landscape, but it is an accurate reflection of the opinions provided to us in the report,” said Baker.
