Publisher's Summary

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 The 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 have as yet posed no physical threat - no one has ever died from a cyberattack - but they serve to undermine the integrity of complex systems like power grids, financial institutions, and security networks.

Segal describes how cyberattacks have the potential to produce unintended and unimaginable problems for anyone with an Internet connection and an email account. State-backed hacking initiatives can sabotage trade strategies, steal intellectual property, sow economic chaos, and paralyze whole countries.

The Hacked World Order exposes how the Internet has ushered in a new era of geopolitical maneuvering and reveals its tremendous and terrifying implications for our economic livelihood, security, and personal identity.

    Story
    "Reduced my activity online"
    If you could sum up The Hacked World Order in three words, what would they be?

    Read this just as FB was revealed to have been grooming the news for users. I suspected it all along and in a world of highly polarized politics and talking heads intoxicated with constantly reaffirming world views, I decided to reduce my overall exposure by shutting down my information i=on social media sites.
    LinkedIn, FB and Twitter as senseless wastes of time as well.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Extent that our information is not secure and the ignorance of our legislative body to understand or do anything about ti.

    Story
    "Dry and a bit off subject at times"

    There was great information in the book, but at times it seemed as if the author just dumped all his notes to pad it out. The narrator was so monotone, the audio version should come with a no-driving warning.
