Hacked: The Inside Story Of America's Struggle To Secure Cyberspace

The spectacular cyber attack on Sony Pictures and costly hacks of Target, Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, and databases containing sensitive data on millions of U.S. federal workers have shocked the nation. Despite a new urgency for the president, Congress, law enforcement, and corporate America to address the growing threat, the hacks keep coming—each one more pernicious than the last—from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, the Middle East, and points unknown. The continuing attacks raise a deeply disturbing question: Is the issue simply beyond the reach of our government, political leaders, business leaders, and technology visionaries to resolve? In Hacked, veteran cybersecurity journalist Charlie Mitchell reveals the innovative, occasionally brilliant, and too-often hapless government and industry responses to growing cybersecurity threats. He examines the internal power struggles in the federal government, the paralysis on Capitol Hill, and the industry's desperate effort to stay ahead of both the bad guys and the government.

This is the first book I've read that explains how the process really works when the government tries to solve a major problem. It's not a technical book, it's about the people. And it's interesting to meet the people who are really trying to secure the internet.HIGHLY recommended!!!!!

HACKED is a must read for anyone who uses a computer. Mitchell is a good writer, and lays out how our government is dealing with (or not dealing with) hacks.

Loved it!
