The 2010 National Security Strategy identified cyber attacks as one of the four highest-priority risks faced by the UK. President Obama has declared cyber security to be one of the most serious economic and national security challenges the US faces as a nation.

High-profile cyber attacks target specific government or private sector organisations. Lower-level attacks, however, are more widespread and are initially automated and indiscriminate - any organisation with an Internet presence will be scanned,and then potentially targeted and attacked.

There is an Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) posed by organised crime and state-level entities who target large multi-national corporations and foreign governments, with the objective of stealing information or compromising information systems.

The goal of an APT is not necessarily to bring a business down, but to stay embedded and steal information undetected. This is a major area of concern, in particular the number and severity of APTs coming out of China.

21st Century Chinese Cyberwarfare draws from a combination of business, cultural, historical and linguistic sources, as well as the author's personal experience, to attempt to explain China to the uninitiated. The objective of the book is to present the salient information regarding the use of cyber warfare doctrine by the People's Republic of China to promote its own interests and enforce its political, military and economic will on other nation states. The threat of Chinese Cyberwarfare can no longer be ignored. It is a clear and present danger to the experienced and innocent alike and will be economically, societally and culturally changing and damaging for the nations that are targeted.
21st Century Chinese Cyberwarfare discusses:
  • Statistics of the Chinese Cyber threat.
  • Chinese government cyber initiatives.
  • Understanding the key motivators for government-sponsored cyber warfare.
  • Commercial enterprises as a cyber threat vector.
  • Nationalistic threads of Chinese hackers.
