“Chilling... [A] harrowing — and persuasive — picture of the cyberthreat the United States faces today.”
-Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
“Clarke and Knake are right to sound the alarm.”
-Wall Street Journal
“[CYBER WAR] may be the most important book about national-security policy in the last several years.”
“In this chilling and eye-opening book, Clarke and Knake provide a highly detailed yet accessible look at how cyber warfare is being waged and the need to rethink our national security to face this new threat.”
“Will strengthen Clarke’s claims as one of the founding fathers of cybersecurocracy....It is worth buying this book if only for his pithy five-page vision of this coming apocalypse and a return to stone-age conditions within a week, all because of a few pesky hackers and viruses.”
Richard Clarke, the former anti-terrorism czar, has now turned his attention to a new national security threat: cyberwar. In a new book, Clarke details what a full-scale cyberattack could look like, how the United States is particularly vulnerable, and what measures can be taken to ensure our networks remain safe.
