New York Times best-selling author P. W. Singer will discuss “Cybersecurity and CyberWar: What Everyone Needs to Know,” his must-read book co-authored with noted cyber expert Allan Friedman. They have teamed up to provide the kind of easy-to-read, yet deeply informative resource book that has been missing on this crucial issue of 21st century life. Written in a lively, accessible style, filled with engaging stories and illustrative anecdotes, the book and Singer’s talk are structured around the key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do?
Singer is Senior Fellow and Director of the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence at the Brookings Institution. Singer's focus is on changes in global security and technology. He is the author of multiple award-winning books on topics that range from private military firms to drones, and, most recently, Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Should Know, which has been described by the Chairman of Google as "an essential read" and by the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO as "the most approachable and readable book ever written on the cyber world." He has been named by the Smithsonian Institution as one of the "leading innovators in the nation," by Defense News as one of the 100 most influential people in defense issues, and by Foreign Policy Magazine to their Top 100 Global Thinkers List.
