The move on the part of the US military, which began in 1996, to Network-Centric Warfare (NCW), meant the combination of sensor grids, C&C grids, and precision targeting to increase speed to command, and represented a military offset. Along with networking comes exposure to cyber attacks, attacks that will be used in future wars.

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.

Cyber Defense: Countering Targeted Attacks

With the sudden, pervasive rise of the Internet, widespread random attacks from viruses, worms, and bots were used to engage in cyber crime and disruptive behavior. As these threats mature, they turn into targeted attacks against banks, large data processors, and governments. Today, such targeted attacks have become the greatest threat facing every organization, including both small and large companies, and governments of all sizes. In this new book, Stiennon presents a comprehensive view of the technology, methodology, and tools needed to defend digital assets from targeted attacks. It is an in-depth manual on the tools, techniques, technology, and policies needed to defend organizations from cyber espionage, Denial-of-Service attacks, and stealthy infiltration.

Stiennon addresses security practitioners, IT managers of corporate and government sites, and government agency officials determining cyber policies. He explains why countering targeted attacks requires new investment in technology, as well as changes to security operations and organizations. He addresses new services and products that have arisen to assist in the task of discovering and blocking targeted attacks, and how deploying these technologies properly is a critical defense against targeted attacks. Each chapter introduces a technology, the types of attacks it defends against, and the products and services available which are suited to the task. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the evolution of the security industry, the threats that drive it, the incidents that highlight the rapid changes in cyber crime, and how to defend against them.
