In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic exposed western democracies’ systemic failure to prepare for a precedented threat. This cost too many lives that could have been saved. Moreover, it exposed grave malfunctions in the current global world order—and its economic, legislative, regulative, and democratic models and institutions. It also crystalized that cyber security defenses and designs accepted as gospel are no longer fit for the purposes of defending the nation, businesses, and protecting the citizen.
Consider governmental failures to prepare for a pandemic they were warned about. Will yours be ready for cyber terrorism? Election meddling? Fake news? How about sinister exploitations of IOT, AI, and quantum computing? Overall, is your government prepared to mitigate Geo-Poli-Cyber™ attacks? This book explores those certainties and new paths forward.
