Publisher Description

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.

Payton reveals:

  • 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.

— John N. Stewart, SVP, Chief Security and Trust Officer CISCO 


  • “With decades of experience in cyber conflict, Payton is the perfect guide to help us understand our new era of hacked elections and non-stop disinformation campaigns. Fortunately, MANIPULATED doesn't stop there: Payton gives us a call to action and clear recommendations for how individual citizens, big tech corporations, governments, and the international community of democratic nations can push back and win

    — Emilian Papadopoulos, President, Good Harbor Cyber Security Risk Management
  • MANIPULATED covers riveting explorations of events over the past decade as well as current happenings not in the public eye. Theresa has a keen sense of extrapolating today's cybercrime methods into tomorrow's unknown threat vectors. She leaves everyone with hope by providing the reader with a how to guide to deflect manipulation campaigns.

    — Scott Schober, CEO of BVS, Author, Cyber Expert.
  • “MANIPULATED begins each chapter with a brief fictionalized story about what's going on out there among hackers, politicians, criminals, and others, creating a 'spy thriller' thread throughout the book. Chapters then go into different aspects of digital manipulation, exploring real life situations and examples taken from today's headlines and behind-the-scenes experiences of the author.

    — Haiyan Song, Silicon Valley Executive in Cyber Security
  • "Anyone that reads the news, watches TV or is on social networks needs to read this book! You are being manipulated and this book gives you the tools to recognize when you're being manipulated and how to stop it!

    — Eric Anderson, Cyber Security Leader, Seattle
