Book Review: Dawn of the Code War

Listen & Download

In Dawn of the Code War, authors John P. Carlin and Garrett M. Graff describe how the Internet has been weaponized by hackers to facilitate election tampering, theft of intelligence files, and many other online forms of attack. The digitization of our economy gives our enemies more avenues to attack us.  Carlin and Graff explain the unusual difficulties America has faced in cyber warfare, partially due to our adversaries not abiding by the same rules of engagement online. The United States government does not have a developed framework of how to respond to these various attacks, and many of these technological developments are still unfamiliar. Our understanding of the threats we are facing is essential to combatting them, and this book makes it clear how necessary winning the code war is.
