U.K. to build a cybersecurity military unit

U.K. to build a cybersecurity military unit
The U.K. government says it plans to develop a military unit that will work to protect networks and data from cyberattacks. One official reportedly termed the unit a "laptop army" and predicted that future combat could be tech-driven. "People think of military as land, sea and air. We long ago recognized a fourth domain -- space. Now there's a fifth -- cyber," defense secretary Philip Hammond said.
