This dissertation addresses attribution and the attaching of state responsibility in cyber-attacks using primarily a case study methodology. It seeks to address its three objectives: an analysis on the threshold in which cyber-operation could be considered a cyber-attack, look into the relevant issues on establishing state responsibility and the standards of proof; and a further analysis on the possible consequences for a state-attributed cyber-attack. The methodology used to conduct this research was desk research with the relevant materials being analysed to give relevant insight as well as a case study to put the discourse into context which will have a direct impact on this paper’s hypothesis.
