Cyberdeterrence and Cyberwar

Cyberdeterrence and CyberwarCyberspace, where information–and hence serious value–is stored and manipulated, is a tempting target. An attacker could be a person, group, or state and may disrupt or corrupt the systems from which cyberspace is built. When states are involved, it is tempting to compare fights to warfare, but there are important differences. The author addresses these differences and ways the United States protect itself in the face of attack.

Modern Warfare, Intelligence and Deterrence: The Technologies That Are Transforming Them (The Economist)

Modern Warfare, Intelligence and Deterrence: The Technologies That Are Transforming Them (The Economist)An in-depth look at Western military technology from the experts at The Economist

Comprised of a selection of the best writing on the subject from The Economist, each section includes an introduction linking the technological developments to civilian matters.

  • Looks at new and emerging military technologies, including the Panzerfaust-3, a German shoulder-fired heat-seeking antitank missile, the MPR-500, an Israeli precision bomb, Russia's Sizzler, an anti-ship missile that can travel 300 kilometers, and many others
  • Explains how military and intelligence technologies are changing the world
  • Edited by Benjamin Sutherland, a writer for The Economist and expert on the social, political, and business implications of new and disruptive technologies

Surviving Cyberwar

Surviving CyberwarMilitary and intelligence leaders agree that the next major war is not likely to be fought on the battleground but in cyber space. Richard Stiennon argues the era of cyber warfare has already begun. Recent cyber attacks on United States government departments and the Pentagon corroborate this claim. China has compromised email servers at the German Chancellery, Whitehall, and the Pentagon. In August 2008, Russia launched a cyber attack against Georgia that was commensurate with their invasion of South Ossetia. This was the first time that modern cyber attacks were used in conjunction with a physical attack. Every day, thousands of attempts are made to hack into America's critical infrastructure. These attacks, if successful, could have devastating consequences. In Surviving Cyberwar, Stiennon introduces cyberwar, outlines an effective defense against cyber threats, and explains how to prepare for future attacks.

Corporate Cyberwar

Corporate CyberwarCorporate Cyberwar chronicles the daily battle between technical criminals and law enforcement. As new and advanced ways to cheat and financially ruin companies are discovered, many authorities not only have to figure out ways to stop it, but they also have to create new laws in order to prosecute the perpetrators. This book addresses how businesses/corporations can protect themselves against this increasingly vicious attack. To help convey the importance of protection and awareness, Cyberwar explores two very important cases, WikiLeaks and Stuxnet. Businesses/corporations are given a better understanding of such similar attacks in the future. Corporate Cyberwar does not only focus on problems, it also provides solutions. There is a point by point explanation of how Crimeware, Bot Networks and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) take place, which helps businesses/corporations understand exactly what needs to be done in order to prevent the attacks. Cyberwar is not only for those with a moderate understanding of technology, it is also for those with limited understanding of this threat and its devastating effects.
