By: Dr. Chase Cunningham

Overview of this book

The era of cyber warfare is now upon us. What we do now and how we determine what we will do in the future is the difference between whether our businesses live or die and whether our digital self survives the digital battlefield. Cyber Warfare – Truth, Tactics, and Strategies takes you on a journey through the myriad of cyber attacks and threats that are present in a world powered by AI, big data, autonomous vehicles, drones video, and social media. Dr. Chase Cunningham uses his military background to provide you with a unique perspective on cyber security and warfare. Moving away from a reactive stance to one that is forward-looking, he aims to prepare people and organizations to better defend themselves in a world where there are no borders or perimeters. He demonstrates how the cyber landscape is growing infinitely more complex and is continuously evolving at the speed of light. The book not only covers cyber warfare, but it also looks at the political, cultural, and geographical influences that pertain to these attack methods and helps you understand the motivation and impacts that are likely in each scenario. Cyber Warfare – Truth, Tactics, and Strategies is as real-life and up-to-date as cyber can possibly be, with examples of actual attacks and defense techniques, tools. and strategies presented for you to learn how to think about defending your own systems and data.

Over the last few years, the autonomous vehicle has come to be a much broader global phenomenon than just that of the self-driving car. There are now autonomous tractors, helicopters, taxis, and boats – there is all manner of self-driving or self-navigating vehicles in use in almost every viable use case on the planet.

As more vehicles are made to "think" for themselves and are enhanced to further eliminate human errors and expedite movement, the likelihood that something will go awry is considered a certainty. Even organizations as large as the US Navy and the US Army have tested and fielded autonomous vehicle systems. Should a sensor or faulty input be acted upon by a weapons system, causing real physical damage as part of that attack cycle, it is possible that something very bad may happen. As those systems are further networked...
