by Winn Schwartau

His first non-fiction book, Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway (1993, 1994, 1996, 1997) developed the concepts and taxonomies of Information Warfare and Cyberterrorism. This book brought previously classified ideas into the public domain. He called for the creation of a National Information Policy, a Constitution in Cyberspace and an Electronic Bill of Rights. An Overview of Information Warfare in 3 Parts.

Schwartau, an expert on information security and electronic privacy, presents an overview of "information warfare," a confict in which electronic information is a vital asset and a strategic target for conquest or destruction. Showing that the essence of our individual and corporate selves is being distributed across thousands of computer databases over which we have little or no control, Schwartau paints a grim picture of what could happen if the very records that define us become subject to malicious modification, theft, unauthorized disclosure, or outright destruction.

His first non-fiction book, Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway (1994, 1996, 1997) . Schwartau is the author of Internet and Computer Ethics for Kids (and Parents and Teachers Without a Clue) (2001/2002)

His first non-fiction book, Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway (1994, 1996, 1997) introduces the concepts of cyberterrorism to the public. Another of his books, Cybershock (2000, 2001), is a non-technical look at the DEF CON conference, hackers in general, Phreaking, and the importance of computer security. Schwartau is the author of Internet and Computer Ethics for Kids (and Parents and Teachers Without a Clue) (2001/2002) His latest work, Analogue Network Security, was released August 8th, 2018 at BSides Las Vegas.

Winn Schwartau was one of the first, along with Peter Black (RIP), to warn Congress and the business world that digital systems would be extremely vulnerable. This book is still in my library.

So why am I recommending a book from 20 years ago? Because Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway shows both how far we have come and how little things have changed. Books like this and Bruce Schneier’s Secrets and Lies from 15 years ago stand the test of time and still have something to contribute.

Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway. Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway. The assertions are overheated and often poorly substantiated, but Schwartau, a prolific cyberjournalist, makes enough telling points to be worth reading. If nothing else, his catalogue of cyberwar incidents (usually striking episodes of computer hacking or minor physical glitches in information systems that have caused large-scale confusion) is a reminder of the widespread dependence on digital communications and information.

A leading expert on electronic privacy outlines the potential for disaster in the information age and tells how, through increased attention and awareness, it can be prevented. Clearly examines the inherent dangers of such a vast electronic we. San Francisco Chronicle.

Discusses the risk of misuse of computers, including the dangers of espionage, sabotage, invasion of privacy, fraud, and other problems, and describes possible security measures

It's a pretty dated book, but the principles and writing are still good. It's more of a cathartic anecdotal reading good for an introduction than a college level study book.
AnnyMars
Amazingly prophetic. Good technical insights not found elsewhere.
Coirad
Written in 1994 this is amazing, especially if you are working on a term paper or doing your thesis.
I really am going to stop rating products if I have to keep writing 20 or more words, it feels like a homework assignment.
This was inexpensive and worked as advertised.

I read this back in the late 90s from cover to cover when I was a youngster. It is not technical in terms of showing code anywhere. It is largely a collection of papers. It reads like it was compiled by some genius anarchist that somehow saw the big picture of global cyber and is telling you "These are the things you need to know! These are the problems we face!" This anarchist feel is solidly reinforced by the last article on "Assassination politics" (completely not related to the technical field). This book will give you new thoughts to think. This book has only become more relevant and important as time passes.

The importance of the contents of this book cannot be overstated. It is a collection of articles written by various experts in the field, which works well as it gives the reader a balanced view. Space prohibits a thorough review, so a list of some important highlights in the book is in order: 1. The discussion on applications of biotronics: bacteria that can detect single molecules of chemical and biological agents. 2. High-power radio frequency (HERF) weapons and their effects on biological systems. 3. The use of superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDS) to measure the magnetic neural activity of the brain. 4. The discussion on "assassination politics". 5. Cognitive maps used to visualize belief systems about information warfare. 6. The afterward of the book, which is the best part actually, for the reason that the author embraces an optimistic view of the future of the information age. He lists the "Ten Commandments" of computer ethics which should be followed by all individuals.
Perongafa
Author covers a wide range of concerns and techniques for the information warfare reader. Breaks attacks and defenses into three categories, personal, corporate, and global. Some introduction to the National Information Infrastructure (NII) is given. Readable and interesting
Iesha
Very informative, a great insight as to what is possible. This should make many people more aware of the need for some sort of security on their systems.
ALOT OF WHAT SCHWARTU IS TALKING ABOUT IN THIS BOOK IS POSSIBLE. SOME OF THE COMPANIES SECURITY IN THE UNITED STATES IS SOMEWHAT WEAK, BUT IMPROVING. SOME OF THE COMPANIES I HAVE WORKED FOR WOULD FLUNK IN THEIR SECURITY MEASURES. THE AUTHOR IS CORRECT ON HOW EASY IT IS TO GET INFORMATION FROM THE USA, FOR EXAMPLE THE SITUATION WITH CHINA ON THE NUCLEAR TECH. SECRETS THAT THEY NOW POSES IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF WHAT WINN SCHWARTAU IS TALKING ABOUT. AND THE S.S.AGENTS WHOS NAMES WERE POSTED ON THE WEB IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE
