Pub. Date:
"Chilling . . . Extraordinary and urgent." -- Washington Post "Scary but well documented . . . A deep dive into the world of cyber war and cyber warriors." -- Los Angeles Times "Unsettling . . . A deeply informative account of how corporations, governments, and even individuals are rapidly perfecting the ability to monitor and sabotage the Internet infrastructure." -- Christian Science Monitor The wars of the future are already being fought today. The United States military currently views cyberspace as the "fifth domain" of warfare (alongside land, air, sea, and space), and the Department of Defense, the National Security Agency, and the CIA all field teams of hackers who can, and do, launch computer virus strikes against enemy targets. As recent revelations have shown, government agencies are joining with tech giants like Google and Facebook to collect vast amounts of information, and the military has also formed a new alliance with tech and finance companies to patrol cyberspace. Shane Harris offers a deeper glimpse into this partnership than we have ever seen before, and he explains what the new cyber security regime means for all of us who spend our daily lives bound to the Internet--and are vulnerable to its dangers. " @War is superb . . . Rigorous, comprehensive, and a joy to read." -- Lawfare

display_description The United States military now views cyberspace as the "fifth domain" of warfare, alongside land, air, sea, and space. The Pentagon, the National Security Agency, and the CIA field teams of hackers who launch cyber strikes against enemy targets--and amass staggering quantities of personal information on all of us. These same virtual warriors, along with a growing band of private-sector counterparts, are charged with defending us against the vast array of criminals, terrorists, and foreign governments who attack us with ever-increasing frequency and effectiveness. Journalist Shane Harris infiltrates the frontlines of this fifth domain, explaining how and why government agencies are joining with tech giants like Google and Microsoft to collect huge amounts of information and launch private cyber wars. The military has also formed a new alliance with tech and finance companies to patrol cyberspace, and Harris offers a penetrating and unnerving view of this partnership. Finally, he details the welter of opportunities and threats that the mushrooming "military-Internet complex" poses for our personal freedoms, our economic security, and the future of our nation.--From publisher description.
