Which is largely irrelevant to the main point that a superpower is waging active, open cyberwar against much of the rest of the world to further its own political ends and the commercial fortunes of companies based there.
Individual corporations – however large – are not equipped to respond to those kinds of attacks. They can ramp up technical defenses but, as we saw with the censorship fight between Google and China this spring, corporations are vulnerable to other sorts of pressure – both commercial and temporal.
What would a mid-sized U.S. company do if, for example, a couple of its locally based executives and their families were arrested in Tehran after the home office complained (or simply admitted publicly) that it had been hacked by a group that appeared to be the newly-invigorated cyber-defense force of the Iranian paramilitary?
State-sponsored digital attack and espionage efforts are not the kind of thing for which any company is equipped to respond.
Despite theories that giant global corporations could punish unfriendly governments by closing facilities, shedding jobs and refusing to do business impoverished countries need to survive – a corporation-as-puppetmaster trope common in cyberpunk novels such as those by Bruce Sterling, William Gibson that popularized the concept of "cyberspace" – national governments have far more power to punish corporations than vice versa.
Earlier this year, when conflict over censorship prompted Google to threaten to pull out of China, the Chinese government was clearly worried it would lose a major player in the global economy. It wasn't worried enough to change its policies or plan to replace Google by heavily promoting a homegrown search service it could control more effectively, but they were clearly a little concerned.
It was a more serious threat when Egypt arrested a mid-level Google executive for participating in the online arguments and discussions that eventually led to the overthrow of the government there in February.
Egypt is not Somalia, whose whole piratical expeditionary force could be overwhelmed by a couple of coast guard cutters or Navy missile cruisers.
