This talk summarizes four models to understand offense-defense balance in cyberspace: asset, systemic, dyadic, and strategic. The main body of international relations scholarship conflates these models and, in consequence, misses the strong and abiding systemic offense advantage. This systemic offense advantage is deeply rooted in decades of computer-science literature which has not been paid sufficiently attention by political scientists. This talk concludes with the policy and research implications of the systemic offensive advantage.
