How Nations Fight, Trade, Maneuver, and Manipulate in the Digital Age
Author: Adam Segal
Publisher: Hachette UK
Category: Political Science
View: 7405In this updated edition of The Hacked World Order, cybersecurity expert Adam Segal offers unmatched insight into the new, opaque global conflict that is transforming geopolitics. For more than three hundred years, the world wrestled with conflicts between nation-states, which wielded military force, financial pressure, and diplomatic persuasion to create "world order." But in 2012, the involvement of the US and Israeli governments in Operation "Olympic Games," a mission aimed at disrupting the Iranian nuclear program through cyberattacks, was revealed; Russia and China conducted massive cyber-espionage operations; and the world split over the governance of the Internet. Cyberspace became a battlefield. Cyber warfare demands that the rules of engagement be completely reworked and all the old niceties of diplomacy be recast. Many of the critical resources of statecraft are now in the hands of the private sector, giant technology companies in particular. In this new world order, Segal reveals, power has been well and truly hacked.
Why We Don't Have the Press we Deserve and What to Do About It
Author: Brian Cathcart,Hugh Grant

View: 2252A brilliantly written, concise and accessible summary of the Leveson inquiry and a convincing argument for why we need press reform from an expert on the subject, with an introduction by Hugh Grant, a Hacked Off campaigner, recent witness at the Leveson inquiry and presenter of the Channel 4 documentary Taking on the Tabloids. When most of the British press conspired to cover up the phone-hacking scandal at the News of the World, what did that tell us? That it wasn't just the News of the World that had something to hide. And when the Leveson Inquiry lifted the lid on their activities we saw what it was: illegal practices, dishonesty, a disregard for the rights of ordinary people and an arrogant assumption of unaccountability. Now the battle is on to decide whether anything will change and the editors and proprietors, with their vast propaganda power, are determined to ensure nothing will. This book, by a long-time journalist who is a founder of the Hacked Off campaign, paints a damning picture of press corruption and makes a passionate case for journalism that doesn't bully and lie - journalism that is truly answerable to the public while remaining free from government interference. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get this right, and we must not allow powerful media corporations to snatch that chance from us. Brian Cathcart has been a journalist for more than thirty years, working for Reuters, the Independent, the Independent on Sunday (where he was deputy editor) and the New Statesman (assistant editor and media columnist). He is the author of several books, including Were You Still Up for Portillo? and the award-winning The Case of Stephen Lawrence. As a journalist he has campaigned for justice for Barry George, who was wrongly convicted of killing Jill Dando, and for the families of the young soldiers killed at Deepcut army barracks. In 2008-10 he was specialist adviser to the Commons media select committee and he has since written about the hacking crisis and media reform for Index on Censorship, Hacked Off, the Guardian, the Financial Times, the Independent, the Daily Beast, CNN, Inforrm and others. He has been professor of journalism at Kingston University London since 2005.

There is an improved quality sample for Episode One on the front page of the website for the novel: http://www.opnovel.com Episode One frames the how, and where everything begins to occur. The development of an ultra wealthy One Percent began, because a combined NASA/NOAA program enlightens a limited number of people to a new twist in the laws of physics. Computer programmers, under the employ of the United States government, identify a method to provide their ancestors with information related to the coming industrial revolution. Their goal was to build the wealth of their ancestors, so that, by their own time, their families would have become financial dynasties. Their plan succeeds, save for certain unreasonable assumptions. They ignored that power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The era of the One Percent begins, but the descendants of those that had benefited will not inherit wealth. In fact, those that benefited are determined to not be identified as frauds. This novel is about payback, and by both sides of the equation. It's a list, and a method of how the war we're all now witnessing, between most of the ultra wealthy, came to begin. A brief description of Episode One: Where History Can Be Hacked A NASA, and NOAA sponsored project goes awry, and inadvertently creates a revised history of the world. The original goal of the experiment was sold as a benign investigation into the history of climate changes. Instead, corrupt intelligence officers overseeing the project had covertly ordered select programmers to supply their ancestors with the knowledge of how to profit financially, during the era of the industrial revolution. The ancestors of these corrupt intelligence officers, as well as those of their programers, became the financial titans of that era. Over subsequent generations, their wealth escalated to a point where they became known as the One Percent. Project managers retained a knowledge of the programmers previous stations in life, and became suspicious their instantaneous wealth might have been created by the project. Project managers, and programmers fought to preserve their preferred histories. Continuous attempts to reshape the past created a sequence of rapidly altered histories. Within only days of repeated revisions to history, little was left of the project's facility, or the programmers computer terminals. The product of their battling was a new unrecognizable history. A new non-industrial society had replaced all previous versions of history. The Medieval period in Europe remained for centuries. The Renaissance, and the Age of Discovery never took place. Instead, it evolved into a force of law governed through Medieval, and Papal Inquisitions. The western Americas became dominated by the peoples that migrated down from the Bering Straight. They continued their migration south, and east, across the Americas. The hypothesis of a Solutrean culture, and their migration west from Europe had been correct. They moved down through the northeast of the Americas. Their range extended further south, and then west, until these two peoples clashed over resources, and territorial domination. Field operatives dropped into the failing experiment, were caught within the new reality, and are seeking a return path. Additional intelligence officers had been sent, with instructions to attempt repair of all modifications to history. Some of the individuals, reluctantly pulled into the new history managed to adapt, and some became leaders within the existing tribal cultures. Preferring their new stations in life, and with little interest in a return, they are determined to maintain their positions. Knowledge of how to recover the original history now exists only within the minds of the programmers. They are among the few left alive known to prefer the original history. The chase of the corrupt intelligence officers, and their programmers, provides the name for the novel. If they chose to remain in the Americas, they face indigenous Asiatic peoples with a hatred of anyone with white skin, or a population of Nordic tribesman accustomed to killing anyone who isn't white; enslaving males, and imprisoning females. If they chose to reside in Europe, they face even greater danger. The officers, and the programmers possess full sets of unblemished teeth, and exhibit increased knowledge. These differences are not subtle, within a society governed by orthodox religion; the rules of the Inquisition, and by Papal Law. Being burned at the stake becomes a genuine possibility. Only a few, within the new history, want the programmers to survive. All who prefer the revised history wish them dead. There is not, anywhere on the face of the Earth, a government interested in the principals of Democracy. They live as low ranking members, within a population controlled by individuals, whose number is even smaller than one percent. Their role in society has been reversed.

A Radical Approach to Hacker Culture and Crime
Author: Kevin F. Steinmetz
Publisher: NYU Press
Category: Social Science
View: 2663Inside the life of a hacker and cybercrime culture. Public discourse, from pop culture to political rhetoric, portrays hackers as deceptive, digital villains. But what do we actually know about them? In Hacked, Kevin F. Steinmetz explores what it means to be a hacker and the nuances of hacker culture. Through extensive interviews with hackers, observations of hacker communities, and analyses of hacker cultural products, Steinmetz demystifies the figure of the hacker and situates the practice of hacking within the larger political and economic structures of capitalism, crime, and control.This captivating book challenges many of the common narratives of hackers, suggesting that not all forms of hacking are criminal and, contrary to popular opinion, the broader hacker community actually plays a vital role in our information economy. Hacked thus explores how governments, corporations, and other institutions attempt to manage hacker culture through the creation of ideologies and laws that protect powerful economic interests. Not content to simply critique the situation, Steinmetz ends his work by providing actionable policy recommendations that aim to redirect the focus from the individual to corporations, governments, and broader social issues. A compelling study, Hacked helps us understand not just the figure of the hacker, but also digital crime and social control in our high-tech society.
