Summary of Cybersecurity and Cyberwar
What Everyone Needs to Know
Learn about stealth attacks, botnets and other secret activity from the never-ending world of cyberwar.
P.W. Singer and Allan Friedman of the Brookings Institution reveal the mysteries of botnets and shed light on the murky areas of cyberwar and clandestine military operations. They detail fascinating episodes, such as the US-Israeli Stuxnet attack on Iranian nuclear engineers, an infiltration so stealthy the engineers didn’t even know it was happening. And, they tell businesses how to stay alert to their own security. Their other true accomplishment, meanwhile, is maintaining a light, entertaining tone. getAbstract recommends their fascinating study to students, coders, start-ups, historians, strategists, anyone in the military, and business owners and managers seeking insight into the defining security frontier of our time.

- How three trends will shape cybersecurity.
