Scary. If on the off chance any reader is running short of things to be worried about, pick up a copy of the latest book by former national security advisor Richard Clarke titled, Cyber War: The Next Threat to National Security and What to Do About It. This frightening book explores all the ways in which we are vulnerable to cyber warfare, and how much needs to be done to shore up our defenses. I read this while watching how the Gulf oil spill brought a way of life to a halt for so many Gulf residents. I couldn’t help but imagine the nightmare of how our dependence on the Internet could disrupt our lives if a cyber attack succeeded in critical areas. Readers who want to be both scared and informed will find a lot on these pages.
