Constanze  Kurz, Frank  Rieger - Cyberwarfare – The Danger from the Web


The underestimated danger:
how cyberattacks can be a threat to every one of us

We are dependent on the Internet. Electricity from the socket, money from the ATM, the train to work – these all function only if computers and networks work well and securely. Yet these systems are vulnerable – and are under attack with growing frequency. Germany, with its highly networked industry and society, with its highly developed and hence greatly vulnerable infrastructure has for a long time ignored the war raging on the Web. It was not until cyberattacks grew in number and with increasing intensity that politics, industry and individuals woke up to what is going on. In their enthralling and thought-provoking book, computer security experts Constanze Kurz and Frank Rieger tell us who is threatening us and what we should do to protect our data, our money and our infrastructure.

Hot stuff – disclosures about a secret war that started long ago.

"The authors impressively illustrate the fundamental dilemma of the digital communities. Cyberwar reveals contexts and connections. […] This book is definitely worth reading."
