"The internet today connects roughly 2.7 billion people around the world, and booming interest in the "internet of things" could result in 75 billion devices connected to the web by 2020. The myth of cyberspace as a digital utopia has long been put to rest. Governments are increasingly developing smarter ways of asserting their national authority in cyberspace in an effort to control the flow, organization and ownership of information. In A Hacked World Order, Adam Segal shows how governments use the web to wage war and spy on, coerce, and damage each other. Israel is intent on derailing the Iranian nuclear weapons program. India wants to prevent Pakistani terrorists from using their Blackberries to coordinate attacks. Brazil has plans to lay new fiber cables and develop satellite links so its Internet traffic no longer has to pass through Miami. China does not want to be dependent on the West for its technology needs. These new digital conflicts pose no physical threat--no one has ever died from a cyberattack--but they serve to both threaten and defend the integrity of complex systems like power grids, financial institutions, and security networks"--

This is somewhat of a pointless book, not really saying anything other than basically repeating some topics from various news sources over the past 7 to 10 years covering cyber warfare. If you haven't bothered reading anything the last 5 years, and are really uninformed, you might get something from this Council on Foreign Relations' instigated book? [Does make the possible suggestion that NSA, or the intelligence establishment, was monitoring the Sony hack by North Korea as it was going down?]
