Revue de presse

In our digital age, the issues of cybersecurity are no longer just for the technology crowd; they matter to us all. Whether you work in business or politics, the military or the media -- or are simply an ordinary citizen -- this is an essential read. (Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google)

This is the most approachable and readable book ever written on the cyber world. The authors have distilled the key facts and policy, provided sensible recommendations, and opened the debate generally to any informed citizen: a singular achievement. A must read for practitioners and scholars alike. (Admiral James Stavridis, U.S. Navy (Ret), former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO)

In confronting the cybersecurity problem, it's important for all of us to become knowledgeable and involved. This book makes that possible -- and also fascinating. It's everything you need to know about cybersecurity, wonderfully presented in a clear and smart way. (Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs)

If you read only one book about 'all this cyberstuff,' make it this one. Singer and Friedman know how to make even the most complicated material accessible and even entertaining, while at the same time making a powerful case for why all of us need to know more and think harder about the (cyber)world we know live in. (Anne-Marie Slaughter, President, the New America Foundation)

Singer and Friedman do a highly credible job of documenting the present and likely future risky state of cyber-affairs. This is a clarion call. (Vint Cerf, "Father of the Internet," Presidential Medal of Freedom winner)

I loved this book. Wow. Until I read this astonishing and important book, I didn't know how much I didn't know about the hidden world of cybersecurity and cyberwar. Singer and Friedman make comprehensible an impossibly complex subject, and expose the frightening truth of just how vulnerable we are. Understanding these often-invisible threats to our personal and national security is a necessary first step toward defending ourselves against them. This is an essential read. (Howard Gordon, Executive Producer of 24 and co-creator of Homeland)

Singer and Friedman blend a wonderfully easy to follow FAQ format with engaging prose, weaving explanations of the elements of cybersecurity with revealing anecdotes. From the fundamentals of Internet architecture to the topical intrigue of recent security leaks, this book provides an accessible and enjoyable analysis of the current cybersecurity landscape and what it could look like in the future. (Jonathan Zittrain, Professor of Law and Computer Science at Harvard University, author of The Future of the Internet - And How to Stop It)

Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs To Know aims to demystify "cyber stuff" and arm readers - from the everyday Internet user to the policymaker - with the necessary tools to better understand cybersecurity and the threats that face it ... Essential reading for anyone interested in national security. (Politico)

More than anything else, the book is a reality check If you're completely ignorant about malware and cyberattacks, this is the book for you. And if you think you know a lot about these topics, this is still the book for you. It's thorough, exhaustive, and easy to read. And it eloquently simplifies every complicated issue, challenging widespread notions about cybersecurity and cyberwar. In this extremely approachable book, Singer and Friedman may have very well told us all we need to know about cybersecurity and cyberwar. Now it's up to us all to work together to make the Internet a better place. (Mashable)

The easy-to-read style, sprinkled with colloquial language, humor, and anecdotes, will make the book particularly engagingPerhaps most importantly, this book will be a significant contribution to building a deeper understanding and a common base of knowledge around cybersecurity issues. This, in turn, may serve as a foundation for enabling policymakers, scholars, and citizens to begin building a crucial dialogue and much-needed conversation around how to approach, understand, and deal with the important policy implications of cybersecurity and cyberwar. (E-International Relations)

A sobering indictment of the current US cybersecurity policy, which has so far been characterized by a dangerous mix of ignorance and shrill hysteria over oft-warned-about but not-yet-realized "cyber Pearl Harbor" catastrophes ... Singer and Friedman cut through this alarmist rhetoric, demystifying technical jargon with simple questions like "How Does The Internet Actually Work?"; "What Is Hacktivism?"; and "Do We Need A Cyberspace Treaty?" The result is an honest, well-researched appraisal of the impact of cyber threats, and the potential solutions for cybersecurity. (Vice Magazine "Motherboard")

Lawyers, consider this your official warning about cybersecurity ... A thorough, comprehensible, and sometimes entertaining explanation of the digital revolution, how we got here, and what lies ahead. (NC Lawyers Weekly)

An impressively comprehensive guide to one of the least understood arenas of modern life. (Popular Science)

In writing Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs To Know, authors Peter W. Singer and Allan Friedman do what few cybersecurity and war scholars do: They tie together the history of the generative Internet, and its foundations in curiosity and experimentation, with the politico-military cyber security community housed in government. They connect the dots between technological traits and their insecurities. And they tell the stories of the people, not just the machines. In the book, Singer and Friedman break down to building blocks what Internet and the World Wide Web are made of, then use those to build back up to sophisticated concepts and information ... At its core, Cybersecurity and Cyberwar makes the point that cybersecurity risk is human risk. (ThinkProgress)

exposes serious ignorance and incompetence in surprisingly high places. (Australia Broadcasting Corporation)

Though it's concise, at 300 pages, the guide covers cyber issues, both personal and global, with easy-to-understand explanations and engaging stories. (The Charlotte Observer)

The pace of global digitization, and the widespread lack of understanding of related security risks, is a ticking time bomb ... If you don't know your asymmetric cryptography from your spear phishing, this is a thoughtful introduction. (Nature)

In short, this book is a genuine must-read for anyone interested in cyber security issues, regardless of their background or level of expertise. Singer and Friedman present a lucid, concise and highly informative breakdown of current cyber security matters and their implications at the global, state, corporate and individual levels. Aside from the highly informative arguments and evidence featured in this book, the style in which it is written allows it to appeal to both experts and newcomers to the subject of cyber security. We can say no more than this book is essential reading in the modern world. (Monitor)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dependence on computers has had a transformative effect on human society. Cybernetics is now woven into the core functions of virtually every basic institution, including our oldest ones. War is one such institution, and the digital revolution's impact on it has been profound. The American military, which has no peer, is almost completely reliant on high-tech computer systems. Given the Internet's potential for full-spectrum surveillance and information disruption, the marshaling of computer networks represents the next stage of cyberwar. Indeed, it is upon us already. The recent Stuxnet episode, in which Israel fed a malignant computer virus into Iran's nuclear facilities, is one such example. Penetration into US government computer systems by Chinese hackers-presumably sponsored by the Chinese government-is another. Together, they point to a new era in the evolution of human conflict. In Cybersecurity: What Everyone Needs to Know, noted experts Peter W. Singer and Allan Friedman lay out how the revolution in military cybernetics occurred and explain where it is headed. They begin with an explanation of what cyberspace is before moving on to discussions of how it can be exploited and why it is so hard to defend. Throughout, they discuss the latest developments in military and security technology. Singer and Friedman close with a discussion of how people and governments can protect themselves. In sum, Cybersecurity is the definitive account on the subject for the educated layman who wants to know more about the nature of war, conflict, and security in the twenty first century.

What Everyone Should Read 6 janvier 2014
Par Ricardo Marquez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
In Cybersecurity and Cyberwar, co-authors Peter W. Singer and Allan Friedman provide public policy and national security professionals with a comprehensive overview of cybersecurity matters. In straightforward prose, Singer and Friedman answer key questions in three parts: how it all works, why it matters, and what can be done and address subjects ranging from advanced persistent threats, cyber force structure, options for deterrence, the balance between offense and defense, lessons from public health, to the incentives behind public-private partnerships. To round out the discussion, I would strongly recommend Cybersecurity and Cyberwar in conjunction with with Ronald Deibert’s Black Code: Inside the Battle for Cyberspace and Thomas Rid’s Cyber War Will Not Take Place.

Great info on "cyber stuff" 22 décembre 2013
Par Kenneth Koprich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
For those who want to keep up on the latest information of where we are in this cyber world, this book is for you. I just could not put it down. There are so many questions that we don't find answers to in the local coffee shop. A sip of java and a shrug are not enough. For example, what is Stuxnet? Why is privacy so hard to maintain? Where do viruses and malware come from? Why can't we catch cyber villains? What are the larger threats? The smaller threats? What agencies protect us? What is cyber war? How can the ordinary person protect himself on line? So many important questions. Singer and Friedman have shown expertise in answering them, and sometimes with interesting stories from behind the scenes. For me, this is essential reading. And, like all things about computers, time sensitive. Read it now, and hope for a new book next year.

Another great book from Peter Singer 10 juin 2014
Par Chip Downing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Dr. Singer's books are always engaging, and this book, co-authored Allan Friedman, continues that tradition.

This book is written to be consumed by any thoughtful reader -- it is not a deep dive in UNIX system administration challenges, it not full of computer acronyms, it does not require an advanced degree in computer science.

This book clearly educates the reader about cybersecurity issues, and then expands upon this discussion to enable the reader to conceptualize the challenges of the subject. A good example of this is their Short History of the Internet, which is a clear and concise and enjoyable read by itself. This history includes, in layman's terms, evolution, funding agencies, control entities, architecture, Al Gore, governance, cryptographic keys, and more. With this foundation the authors then expand into many cybersecurity challenges, like WikiLeaks and a variety of security threats.

I particularly liked the discussions on attribution, cybercrimes, and cyber terrorism -- these are not simple issues, and the authors articulate some of the complexities of attribution that make cybersecurity so difficult.

The authors wrap up the book by defining the Five Key Trends that Affect the Future of Cybersecurity – Cloud Computing, Big Data, Mobile, Cyberspace Demographics, and Internet-of-Things (IoT). These trends all increase the problem space of cybersecurity, and the authors define how these trends will drive an even higher demand for security in our future systems.

With this history, description of threats, frameworks, and trends, the authors truly accomplish their goal of delivering a primer of what one needs to know about cybersecurity and cyberwar.

Cybersecurity, the Whole Picture 20 mars 2014
Par Robin T. Wernick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Like most people I was looking for answers to my personal LAN security issues and picked this book in the hopes of getting a deeper understanding of how to secure my network. But, I got an even better deal instead. This book covers the entire state of cyber security issues from car theft by network interference to Cyberwar.

The issue of network security has become global in scope and there are no political boundaries in Cyberspace. Nothing separates us personally from being raided by a thief whether he be an individual using an electronic jamer to keep your car unlocked or an employee of the Chinese government using commercial routers to collect personal data against you.

The misuse and abuse of Cyberspace is predicated on the natural openness of the design of the Ethernet. Education about the current situation is our primary defense against those who would use this valuable tool against us. And this book does an excellent job of appraising us about the dangers and defenses inherent in this communications medium.

This is not a book about how to setup the network security switches on your operating system. This is the book to tell you what has been happening in the entire world of Cyberspace that can affect you directly. Before you can defend yourself you need to know what the threat really is.

Most of the book is spent covering the current world level security threat complex. With the exception of Denial of Service and RoboLensing attacks, the book gives the reader very good advice on how to deny the attackers effective access to your computer network. The general answer lies here.

As in personal self defense, the answer comes through more effective communication with the security community and application of proper security measures. Reducing your threat cross section by using the approaches detailed in the book will help you to protect your data and your sleep.
