Cyberphobia : identity, trust, security and the Internet / Edward Lucas.
The identities and personal information of millions is stolen outright as criminals drain bank accounts and max out credit cards. Even more catastrophic are international hackers threatening national security, trade secrets and electricty supply grids. The author unpacks this shadowy problem and warns we do not take cybersecurity seriously enough. Weak cybersecurity puts all of us at risk.
