A surprising, page-turning account of how the wars of the
future are already being fought today
The United States military currently views cyberspace as the
“fifth domain” of warfare—alongside land, sea, air, and space—and the
Department of Defense, National Security Agency, and CIA all field teams of

cybersecurity regime means for all of us who spend our daily lives bound to the
Internet—and are vulnerable to its dangers. Download and start listening now!
