Are our networked societies really vulnerable, as some have suggested, to a knock-out blow, perpetrated by state-sponsored hackers or terrorists? And what can be done to defend the state from this and from the encroachment of external networks that transcend its borders and breach its laws?
This Adelphi tackles the range of issues raised by our dependence on digital networks. It considers how instantaneous, global communications are challenging national and social orders and what shape those challenges may take as the net is cast ever wider.

‘In the cyber domain, policy has fallen far behind technology and operational art. By providing a conceptual framework for looking at what power is in the cyber domain and how it is exercised, this book offers policy-makers valuable guidance in how to think about a major security issue.’ Michael Hayden, Director of the CIA, 2006–09

Even though the main argument is that more times than not, the government and its various departments, are "out to get" the citizenry – are outlandish to say the least and the motto, creed, and vision that these men and women live by means absolutely nothing to them or their families; which is, against common sense and the profession that has become a second human nature in the first place. One starts out on the path to development or, what a Renaissance man/woman would call “becoming,” from an infancy and matures; this is what truly needs to be realized instead of sparse new reports that drive fear instead of the attitudes of those working to change our world for the better. It is the opinion of this report that it is the Intelligence Community's (IC) position, aspiration, and life's work to be effective in detouring, preventing, and eliminating these threats to our way of life. because of the following types of threats to our cybersecurity are clear and present and are vulnerabilities that are and will be continually addressed by the (IC) for now and all time:
Intellectual Property theft
Corporate and Nation State threats
and I will present examples of such threats to make one aware that speculation and cooperation are two aspects that need to be addressed when expecting problems of this nature; and, to be addressed by those who address them for a living; and, who care immensely for what they do and those they serve. We use a Linear equation of Vector Addition to represent what your risks are to cyber threats and hacks and present examples of some executive dangers inherent in our Information based business world.
The Internet has given rise to new opportunities for the public sector to improve efficiency and better serve constituents in the form of e-government. But with a rapidly growing user base globally and an increasing reliance on the Internet, digital tools are also exposing the public sector to new risks.
An accessible primer, Cybersecurity: Public Sector Threats and Responses focuses on the convergence of globalization, connectivity, and the migration of public sector functions online. It identifies the challenges you need to be aware of and examines emerging trends and strategies from around the world. Offering practical guidance for addressing contemporary risks, the book is organized into three sections:
Global Trends—considers international e-government trends, includes case studies of common cyber threats and presents efforts of the premier global institution in the field
National and Local Policy Approaches—examines the current policy environment in the United States and Europe and illustrates challenges at all levels of government
Practical Considerations—explains how to prepare for cyber attacks, including an overview of relevant U.S. Federal cyber incident response policies, an organizational framework for assessing risk, and emerging trends
Also suitable for classroom use, this book will help you understand the threats facing your organization and the issues to consider when thinking about cybersecurity from a policy perspective.
