According to Information Warfare: How to Survive Cyber Attacks, conflict isn't what it used to be. Technology analyst Michael Erbschloe knows the specs and the spooks on the inside of counter-terrorism and anti-hacker units and sees a new set of potential attacks targeting governments, businesses and individuals. The book looks at ten basic strategies of attacking information infrastructure and suggests short-term and long-term defensive manoeuvres.
Sobering and stimulating at the same time, his writing is direct and suggests immediate changes we can make to shore ourselves against the new threats. Some are as simple as considering whom we share information with, while others will require long-term policy initiatives and intense political manoeuvring.
The interplay between business and the military and law enforcement branches of government is a major theme--Erbschloe makes much of their interdependence and calls for more cooperation. Rogue nations, independent terrorists and amateur hackers can create economy-wrecking havoc while accepting relatively little risk to themselves; Information Warfare can help the rest of us prepare and defend ourselves from the inevitable. --Rob LightnerReview:
