Cybersecurity expert Theresa Payton tells battlefront stories from the global war being conducted through clicks, swipes, internet access, technical backdoors and massive espionage schemes. She investigates the cyberwarriors who are planning tomorrow’s attacks, weaving a fascinating yet bone-chilling tale of Artificial Intelligent mutations carrying out attacks without human intervention, “deepfake” videos that look real to the naked eye, and chatbots that beget other chatbots. Finally, Payton offers readers telltale signs that their most fundamental beliefs are being meddled with and actions they can take or demand that corporations and elected officials must take before it is too late.
- How digital voting machines, voting online, and automatic registration may boost turnout but make us more vulnerable to cyberattacks.
- How trolls from Russia and other nations actively stoke discord among Americans in falsely-generated controversies over race relations, vaccinations, fracking, and other social issues.
- Whether what we have uncovered from the Mueller investigation so far is only what they wanted us to know.

"Theresa Payton's experience, intelligence, and passion reach off the pages of MANIPULATED to shake our shoulders and us up. This isn't fiction, and it isn't a movie script, it is a testimonial aimed to clear the fog in our information-overloaded world, and demand that we go back to our foundations - that truth is a requirement and needs tending, that foreign interference isn't acceptable in how we make free choices, and that we're not bystanders. Read this book, twice, and see her justification for the included blueprints to big tech, governments, and all of us to restore those essential foundations. Apathy, ignorance, and misperception are what others want, Payton wants quite the opposite.
