Bit Wars : Cyber Crime, Hacking & Information Warfare
Do you hear news everyday on the latest hacking attack, but just don't quite understand what it is all about? Well this is the book for you. In BIT WARS, Dr. Thomas Hyslip presents the history of cybercrime, hacking and information warfare that has lead us to where we are today. Espionage, Stuxnet, Cyber Terrorism, Anonymous, TOR, the Deep Web, they are included. Hacking started as a quest for knowledge and curiosity, but has become a worldwide problem with no end in sight. The Center for Strategic and International Studies estimated the annual cost of cybercrime at more than $445 billion annually. Furthermore, the number and sophistication of attacks has steadily increased. In 2014, Target and Home Depot were victims of large scale point of sale attacks, and millions of credit and debit cards were stolen. Ebay lost the account information of over 233 million users, and Sony was attacked by North Korea in retaliation for the movie, "The Interview." Read about it all in BIT WARS: Cyber Crime, Hacking and Information Warfare, and understand why you should be concerned.
