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.

A pragmatic application for SDN

But because of the growth of SDN and SDDC, this means that micro-segmentation must be much grander in scale and spread, as what was once simply a few virtual instances needed to be segmented is now an entire virtual ecosystem must now be dynamically defended. For this approach to be effective, it is necessary to understand what exactly must be segmented and how. While, often, the concept of segmentation stops at the network layer, there is a very real need to extend that ability further toward the edge and the entity to enhance security control and manageability. Doing this pragmatically, however, is difficult in concept and can be even harder in practicality if one does not think about what to segment and how.

For better command, control, and visibility of the defensive surface, it is necessary to have visibility of all assets that communicate using east-west traffic, or internal network traffic, communicate within the same security zone. Doing this...
