The year 2023 was marked by numerous instances of assault, both physical and cyber in nature. On October 7, 2023, Hamas launched a coordinated cross-border assault on Israel, initiating the Israel-Hamas War. This multi-front attack resulted in approximately 1,200 Israeli deaths and the capture of over 240 hostages. The assault teams were armed and trained in Gaza, less than 80 kilometers from the West Bank, an activity that was largely overlooked or dismissed. Detailed plans of the attack were revealed during interrogations, including explicit instructions for individual commanders. Meanwhile, in Estonia, media portals experienced a cyber assault at the end of August. In addition to these large-scale assaults, there were also individual cases of assault, as well as allegations of negligence against corporations. A woman in San Francisco sued her husband in 2020 for "assault and sexual battery," which later evolved into allegations of negligence against Tesla in 2023. In another case, the City confirmed an incident of ransomware encrypting its IT systems on May 5, with unusual transparency. Moreover, Amnesty reported concerns about spyware being used to target civil society and journalists in Indonesia, where civil rights are under assault. Furthermore, the Cyber Assault Sequence Framework provided a methodical progression composed of seven steps to understand and tackle cyber threats. This framework became increasingly relevant as supply chain threats began to appear in the guise of trusted vendor products and code. In one such instance, the organization responsible for managing electricity distribution confirmed a ransomware assault on August 3, 2023. Amidst all these events, AB 1138 was introduced by Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber (D-San Diego), focusing on postsecondary education: sexual assault and sexual violence prevention and medical examinations transportation services.
