The book explores intricate interconnectedness of the cyber and physical worlds. As our interactions with physical objects increasingly rely on embedded computational systems, we unlock capabilities that surpass even the most ambitious predictions of past futurists. However, this fusion also introduces profound vulnerabilities.
The book describes in detail over 40 real-life cyber-kinetic incidents – cybersecurity incidents that resulted in injuries or fatalities. The book explores the potential threats of our cyber-connected world, reevaluates our current cybersecurity approaches, and offers strategies for risk reduction and mitigation in the face of cyber-kinetic attacks.
