Like no other book before it, this one illustrates the relationships and interdependencies of business and national objectives, of companies and countries, and of the dependence of all of them on advances in technology. This book sheds light on the "Achilles heel" that these dependencies on advanced computing and information technologies create. It underscores how warfare in the computer age can strike devastatingly in an instant from across the globe.

Like no other book before it, Global Information Warfare illustrates the relationships and interdependencies of business and national objectives, of companies and countries, and of their dependence on advances in technology. This book sheds light on the "Achilles heel" that these dependencies on advanced computing and information technologies create. It underscores how hostile countries, business competitors, terrorists, hacktivists and others are waging Information Warfare (IW) against their adversaries. This may sound like science fiction, but it has been happening for years and continues to this day-anyone and everyone can be a target and a casualty.
