In an increasingly networked world where industrial control systems and physical infrastructure are linked to the Internet, a cyber-based attack could have astronomically devastating physical and economic effects on society, at home and abroad. No one knows this better than General Keith Alexander, a recognized expert in warfare and security, chief of the Central Security Service and head of USCYBERCOM. What companies really need is a level of certainty that they will detect cyber intrusions–but the question remains, “how do you get there?” Based on his level of experience in both the government and private sector, Alexander provides insights on how to drive such a solution. In a detailed discussion of immense take-home value to economists, technology buffs, business owners, executives, leaders, and citizens across the board, he examines such topics as: the vulnerability of critical infrastructure; the susceptibility of the military’s command and control structure; the dependence of the economy on the Internet’s smooth functioning; and the imperativeness for the private sector to assume its portion of the responsibility for protecting the infrastructure that connects to the Internet. Moreover, he articulates a road map for what is likely to be the strategic challenge of the next several decades: how we protect our increasingly networked world in a way that preserves freedom and liberty.

With advanced degrees in both physics and electronic warfare, an unprecedented tenure as head of the NSA, and over 40 years of top-level experience as a leader, General Keith Alexander is among the most influential figures in national security to date. A colossal undertaking given the rapidity of change and the vulnerabilities that change brings—specifically when policy, technology and ways of thinking or looking at the world lag behind—Alexander’s methodology is more than fit for the task. It is multipronged, highly complex, comprehensive, and largely straddles his efforts to protect the nation from cyber attacks. A critical figure in developing and advocating the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative and leading USCYBERCOM, Alexander’s approach to national security helped to bridge the gap between agencies and focus the efforts of the government in ways that not only paralleled but jumped ahead of the trajectory. An agent of change who truly understands its impact, Alexander has transformed the way we think about new domains of warfare and security. In a detailed discussion of critical import to countless members of the public and private sectors, Alexander examines the nation’s current state of affairs, what’s on the horizon, and offers solutions about what we can do to stay ahead of the curve to protect America’s most vulnerable targets and secure our nation for future generations.
