Now available in a new edition entitled GLASS HOUSES: Privacy, Secrecy, and Cyber Insecurity in a Transparent World.

A former top-level National Security Agency insider goes behind the headlines to explore America's next great battleground: digital security. An urgent wake-up call that identifies our foes; unveils their methods; and charts the dire consequences for government, business, and individuals.

Shortly after 9/11, Joel Brenner entered the inner sanctum of American espionage, first as the inspector general of the National Security Agency, then as the head of counterintelligence for the director of national intelligence. He saw at close range the battleground on which our adversaries are now attacking us-cyberspace. We are at the mercy of a new generation of spies who operate remotely from China, the Middle East, Russia, even France, among many other places. These operatives have already shown their ability to penetrate our power plants, steal our latest submarine technology, rob our banks, and invade the Pentagon's secret communications systems.

Incidents like the WikiLeaks posting of secret U.S. State Department cables hint at the urgency of this problem, but they hardly reveal its extent or its danger. Our government and corporations are a "glass house," all but transparent to our adversaries. Counterfeit computer chips have found their way into our fighter aircraft; the Chinese stole a new radar system that the navy spent billions to develop; our own soldiers used intentionally corrupted thumb drives to download classified intel from laptops in Iraq. And much more.

Dispatches from the corporate world are just as dire. In 2008, hackers lifted customer files from the Royal Bank of Scotland and used them to withdraw $9 million in half an hour from ATMs in the United States, Britain, and Canada. If that was a traditional heist, it would be counted as one of the largest in history. Worldwide, corporations lose on average $5 million worth of intellectual property apiece annually, and big companies lose many times that.

The structure and culture of the Internet favor spies over governments and corporations, and hackers over privacy, and we've done little to alter that balance. Brenner draws on his extraordinary background to show how to right this imbalance and bring to cyberspace the freedom, accountability, and security we expect elsewhere in our lives.

In America the Vulnerable, Brenner offers a chilling and revelatory appraisal of the new faces of war and espionage-virtual battles with dangerous implications for government, business, and all of us.

With a background in espionage and a fairly strong academic approach, Brenner highlights some of the specifics through direct involvement in this subject. In particular, his review of the shabby practices in the electric utility industry were of interest to me as I am a participant in that industry. I have long held the same view that connection of electric utility scada and EMS systems to the Internet is inexcusable, stupid and highly risky, for little benefit, so this now gives me more ammunition in dealing with my clients. The extensive reference section also adds value in this context.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely Riveting/Horrifying 13. Dezember 2011
Von Anthony Ian - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've not yet read Richard Clarke's book and I've read Worm, by Mark Bowden, on a similar topic. But this book is simply jaw-dropping.

If you're not afraid of the Chinese you will be after reading this. What's worse, while we could all probably guess that our infrastructure and Internet is woefully unprepared for a cyber-attack, you'll be shocked at how China IS absolutely prepared. In other words, not only are they the biggest cyber-threat to the U.S., they have fortified their own cyber-defenses, which means that they could probably attack at will and we would have absolutely no recourse.

The author also makes the case that cyber-security cannot be left up to individuals, hoping they do the right thing. People will choose convenience over security every time, which is why security must be built in to the hardware we use and must be vigilantly enforced by those who run networks.

You'll be stunned at how, well, vulnerable such vital industries are in this country--particularly the electric grid--but even more stunned by the "Don't ask, don't tell"/head-in-the-sand attitude of those in charge of them. Clearly a cyber-9/11 is just waiting to happen, and this book is the August 6th PDB: China is most DEFINITELY determined to strike within the U.S., and they already *have*.

What's even more frustrating is that the author offers several solutions/improvements which will never see the light of day because of our completely dysfunctional/inept government. The book is worth it for his simulated Chinese attack scenario alone, which is eerily reminiscent of the "Fire Sale" scenario in the fourth Die Hard movie.

A super-quick read--I finished this in less than 24 hours, in two sittings.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Frightening, but should be required reading 27. Januar 2013
Von Robert Fately - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Brenner writes with authority and experience and describes the (very frightening) sad state of computer security, from Pentagon to our public utilities. He describes with knowing accuracy the problems for which we are no doubt in store in coming years.

This is another of those books that ought to be read by the entire congress, if not the entire population of computer users, but of course will not be and thus we can all watch as the Titanic sails into the iceberg.

A very complete rundown of cyber threats and what can be down about them. A great reference for anyone interested in defending their networks and looking for a conceptual place to start. Uses great real world and fabricated examples to show points.
