There is money in cybercrime, yet the stakes are higher in cyberwar, where nation-states battle to cripple their foe's capacity to operate in the information age. In Cyber War I, Iran launches a six-day cyberwar against the West to level the playing field of technology powers.
Rob Warner feels he is at the end of his career. He knows he has a great job, but he's ready to retire. The work isn't as fun as when he was technical. Reluctantly, Rob finds himself in the middle of the action, and in a position to stop the pending destruction. If he's willing to sacrifice his career, jeopardize his retirement, and put his life in harm's way, then he can lead his team of security analysts and forensics experts to counter-attack and save his country from devolving back to the digital stone age.
Cyber War I marries a high-tech thriller with a primer on computer security in this author's debut novel. From his vivid description of the raised floor in a data center, to detailing a ransomware attack, Ed interprets this complex world for his readers. His authentic characters display their commitment to protecting technology in a world of bad actors. The attacks are all too real as the technology is disclosed. Cyber attacks are explained, both in the kits used to make them and the methods to recover. The potential for the advanced economies of the world to lose everything appears unstoppable in this avalanche of escalating assaults in cyberspace.
