There is a media swarm around cyber operations and all sorts of cybercrime these days, most of which the general population is generally unaware of. The reality is there is a criminal underworld in cyberspace, and the technologies involved, like artificial intelligence, are being used for malicious intent. —
The growth of coverage for national security concerns, nation-state attacks, special forces, and cyber operations is at an all-time high. There is a need to educate the general public on how this underworld of cybercrime will affect us all, anywhere from the disruption of supply chains to paralyzing critical infrastructure.
“We have enough speculation and high-level conversations about cybersecurity threats,” said Dr. Cunningham, cyber-security expert, “this is intended to be a narrative breakdown of what scenarios could occur.”
Today, more so than in days past, consumers of technology are bound to their electronic devices and the internet almost 24/7. They need to be made aware of the intricacies, realities, and dangers of this dark world that lurks just beneath a stroke on their keyboards or a swipe on their phones. Dr. Cunningham’s book will speak to cyberspace technologists and the casual fiction consumer that enjoys an excellent narrative action or thriller. Readers who enjoy books about national security and criminal activity involving hacking and ransomware, among other destructive cybercrimes, will find this a great read. His book gAbrIel, is available on Amazon for purchase.
The author also has a strong call to action for his audience. He is calling for more women to consider a career in cyber security. “There is a gap in this industry, and we need more women in this industry,” Chase expressed. “Focusing on the younger women getting into STEM, intelligence, and defense will be key.”
About the Book: The average user has little idea that there is a much darker area within cyberspace. Most people are simply focused on how much access they can have and how deeply connected they can be with little, if any, concern for the truth of the threat space in which they operate. Consumers must pay attention to the truths of what can and is happening in this active cyber battlefield. In addition to this threat, there is a real need to break down what is technically possible with artificial intelligence in the realm of cyber threat actors and operations. Many books have been written as warfare books, which ignore the intricacies and dependencies of cyberspace and kinetic combat in today’s world. This new work of fiction is a scenario about how cyber warfare, cybersecurity, and AI interplays to come together when leveraged by bad actors. The chapters include a narrative that spans points in the hero’s life when serving in the national security/intelligence communities, countering cybercriminal actions, and building and deploying secure systems to counter malicious threat actions.
This book will detail realistic scenarios that are technically possible were a truly malevolent actor to obtain access to one of these types of assets. This book is written in a popular narrative style. It’s easily accessible and not highly technical to those who don’t know much about these technical systems. Yet, the book breaks down specific tools and techniques and provides valuable insights into how these often misunderstood technologies work.
