About the Book
The Internet age has ushered a new type of warfare - digital warfare. This isn't just warfare among "hackers" gaining unauthorized access to computer systems, but a war to influence public opinion through data analytics, propaganda and "fake news". Waging a war against the minds of the people isn't a new strategy, but the Internet age has ushered in the ability to rapidly produce simultaneous attacks against democracy and free elections.
This book, written by Cyber Security professional Ken Buckler, explores the digital threats our democracy faces in the 21st century, and how to guard against those threats.
