Overview

Military and intelligence leaders agree that the next major war is not likely to be fought on the battleground but in cyberspace. Recent cyber attacks on U.S. government departments and the Pentagon corroborate this claim. Every day, thousands of attempts are made to hack into America's critical infrastructure. These attacks, if successful, could have devastating consequences. In Surviving Cyberwar, author Richard Stiennon examines cyber threats and where they come from, and explains how defensive technologies can be used to counter cyber attacks and to secure American infrastructure.

This book examines in depth the major recent cyber attacks that have taken place around the world, discusses the implications of such attacks, and offers solutions to the vulnerabilities that made these attacks possible. Through investigations of the most significant and damaging cyber attacks, the author introduces the reader to cyberwar, outlines an effective defense against cyber threats, and explains how to prepare for future attacks. This text is a stimulating and informative look at one of the gravest threats to homeland security today. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with the current geopolitical state of affairs.
