Threats in cyberspace are growing rapidly and pose ever-increasing challenges for everyone from private individuals to businesses to national governments. The Internet enables limitless sharing of information around the globe, resulting in an effectively near-infinite security threat to governments and organizations as well as to individuals' personal privacy. While figures vary, it is reliably estimated that $1 trillion in theft occurs via cyberspace every year.
In his new book, Cyber Warfare, Paul Rosenzweig provides a comprehensive review of cyber conflict issues and offers an analytical foundation for thinking about cybersecurity law and policy questions. He reviews a wide range of 21st Century cyber issues – malicious software, encryption, hardware intrusions, privacy and civil liberties concerns as well as other critical aspects to this expanding menace as it continues to develop on the international stage.
Paul Rosenzweig helped craft policy and strategy inside the Department of Homeland Security over a period of four years as Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Acting Assistant Secretary for International Affairs. He is the founder of Washington, DC-based Red Branch Consulting PLLC. His legal specialties include civil liberties, national security and criminal law. A Visiting Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, he also serves as a Senior Editor for the Journal of National Security Law & Policy and is a professorial lecturer in law at the George Washington University School of Law.
