The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About ItBook - 2010
A powerful book about technology, government, and military strategy, about criminals, spies, soldiers, and hackers. Clearly and convincingly explain what cyber war is, how cyber weapons work, and how vulnerable we are as a nation and as individuals to the vast and looming web of cyber criminals. From the first cyber crisis meeting in the White House a decade ago to the boardrooms of Silicon Valley and the electrical tunnels under Manhattan, Clarke traces the rise of the cyber age and profiles the unlikely characters and places who are at the epicenter of the battlefield. He recounts the foreign cyberspies who hacked into the office of the Secretary of Defense, the control systems for US electric power grids, and the plans to protect America's latest fighter aircraft.
