Summary of The Hacked World Order
How Nations Fight, Trade, Maneuver, and Manipulate in the Digital Age
Forget subs, tanks and nukes. Countries are fighting today’s battles online.
World powers increasingly use computer espionage to spy on their rivals, spread propaganda and even sabotage nuclear weapons programs. Technology expert Adam Segal’s engaging study persuasively presents cyberspace as the new front line in geopolitical combat. International superpowers, outlier nations and cold-blooded terrorists alike have leapt into cyberwar, portending an unpredictable future for Internet security and diplomatic relations. getAbstract recommends this clearheaded, informative overview to technologists, policy makers, investors and NGOs seeking insight into a new era of international relations and threats.
In this summary, you will learn
- How the new era of cyberwarfare differs from the past
- How this trend affects diplomatic relations
- How nations and companies respond
