For more than three hundred years, the world wrestled with conflicts that arose between nation-states. Nation-states wielded military force, financial pressure, and diplomatic persuasion to create world order.” Even after the end of the Cold War, the elements comprising world order remained essentially unchanged.
&nbspBut 2012 marked a transformation in geopolitics and the tactics of both the established powers and smaller entities looking to challenge the international community. That year, the US government revealed its involvement in Operation Olympic Games,” a mission aimed at disrupting the Iranian nuclear program through cyberattacks; Russia and China conducted massive cyber-espionage operations; and the world split over the governance of the Internet. Cyberspace became a battlefield.
&nbspCyber conflict is hard to track, often delivered by proxies, and has outcomes that are hard to gauge. It demands that the rules of engagement be completely reworked and all the old niceties of diplomacy be recast. Many of the critical resources of statecraft are now in the hands of the private sector, giant technology companies in particular. In this new world order, cybersecurity expert Adam Segal reveals, power has been well and truly hacked.

Cyber war and cyber-attack is an engaging review of the basic knowledge all up to date readers should have about cyber war and cyber-attacks before diving into more complex texts, as well as extra information for those already familiar with the topic. This work takes a look at general issues involving cyber vulnerability and our growing dependency on computers systems and networks. It goes beyond simple concepts such as hackers, hacktivism and espionage without neglecting them. It exposes the relevance of cyberdefence to both companies and ordinary users, giving especial attention to e-commerce platforms. At a time that many countries are employing strategies and money to prevent or minimize attacks as well as defend themselves against cyber threats this work pinpoints the key factors around the intentions behind attacks without minimizing their scale and variety. The jargon-free language and the current examples included help to set the discussion in the present day, while stressing important historical connections and pointing to how our strong network is at risk of becoming our weakest link.
