“Experts in the field of ‘cyberpower’ address a range of issues arising from the use of cyberspace by malevolent actors and ‘the many security vulnerabilities that plague this sphere.’ Both the theory and practical application of cyberpower are discussed.”
"Cyberpower security is now one of the major national security problems facing the United States. This book recognizes and emphasizes the need for the government to develop a holistic approach to cyberpower; without this awareness and commitment, our national security is in jeopardy."
"It's about time! After nearly 20 years, finally, a well-thought-out, analytical compendium of the current state of the art. The challenge is implementing these ideas in a meaningful manner that provides true cybernational security against a world of asymmetric actors. This is going to be one of my primary references for years to come."
"National Defense University [NDU] is the trailblazer in thinking about cyberpower. This book and the workshops NDU convened while it was drafted provide some of the absolutely best thinking around on how cyber is reshaping the exercise of power and what that will mean for American security."
"This book not only offers an inside look at military cyberpower, tactics, and strategies, but also gives a unique look at cyber deterrence, cyber law, and opportunities for future research. In today's cyber environment, the United States must work diligently to not only keep up with our near-peer competitors, but to stay one step ahead of them. Cyberpower and National Security
explores policy issues, theories, trends, and future technologies that can give the United States that edge in the cyber domain"
