Cyber Warfare – Truth, Tactics, and Strategies

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.

As a point of note, in a strict sense, there is no such thing as AI – yet, that is. There are very functional, focused, specific applications of mathematics combined with powerful computing backend infrastructures, but there is no true AI as of today. That term is one that is more a result of marketing spin and misunderstanding on the part of the general non-computer science population, based on movies and overhyped capabilities that simply do not exist. That being said, it does not mean that there are not a variety of very applicable uses for machine learning and powerful computational mathematics that can be leveraged for nefarious purposes.

Just as there have been massive innovations in areas such as self-driving cars, biometrics, data use, and a myriad of other applications, there are also innovations of a malicious nature in those same spaces. The AI space is no different. Innovation and exponential...
