(PRLEAP.COM) June 22, 2015 – Richard Stiennon, author of Surviving Cyberwar (Government Institutes, 2010) and UP and to the RIGHT: Strategy and Tactics of Analyst Influence (IT-Harvest Press, 2012) has written a new book. There Will Be Cyberwar chronicles the move on the part of the US Military to a network-centric war fighting capability. NCW is the use of networked sensors, Command&Control, and precision weapons systems.
“When I wrote Surviving Cyberwar I realized that I could benefit from going back to school to study war,” said Stiennon. “There Will Be Cyberwar is derived from my Masters dissertation at King’s College, London.”
There Will Be Cyberwar provides a concise definition of cyberwar: the use of computer and network attacks to further the goals of a military operation. It goes on to demonstrate that the US Military in particular has done little to defend the components of NCW from cyber attack.
Paperback and Kindle editions of There Will Be Cyberwar are available from Amazon and participating bookstores and libraries.
