|[[File:Data as a military objective.svg|left|frameless|200x200px]]The definition of military objectives and the prohibition of attacks on civilian objects are limited to “objects”. If the target of a cyber operation is not an “object”, then actions against it are not constrained by the rules of IHL that govern targeting. It is therefore of crucial importance '''whether data may qualify as an “object” and therefore be''' either '''a military objective''' subject to attack or a civilian object protected from attack, particularly with respect to cyber operations that do not result in a physical effect. If data does not qualify as an “object”, civilian datasets would enjoy little if any protection in times of armed conflict.
