I’ve been meeting with policymakers of all ages and levels of responsibility during the last few months. Frequently they ask “What can I read to better understand cyber security?” I decided to answer them collectively in this quick blog post.
By posting these, I am not endorsing everything they say (with the exception of the last book). On balance, however, I think they provide a great introduction to current topics in digital security.
1. Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know by Peter W. Singer and Allan Friedman
2. Countdown to Zero Day: Stuxnet and the Launch of the World’s First Digital Weapon by Kim Zetter
3. @War: The Rise of the Military-Internet Complex by Shane Harris
