Summary
As the National Information Infrastructure grows and evolves into everyman's electronic superhighway, are we opening the doors to an electronic cold war? Or are we on the edge of a brave new precipice overlooking the dawn of the information revolution? With over 125,000,000 computers inextricably tying our economy together through complex land and satellite-based communications systems, a major portion of our domestic 6 trillion dollar economy depends on their consistent and reliable operation. In a serious and inviting manner, Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway examines the awesome potential for industrial and international espionage. Through sabotage, theft, data manipulation, and other means, our economy could be crippled beyond anything in recent history. Currently within the banking community it is common practice for banks to use creative accounting to hide millions of dollars lost every year through Information Warfare. In Information Warfare the "digital persona" plays the role of victim and perpetrator. The wrong hands could extract the most personal information about the "digital you," not the least of which could be medical, financial, business, legal, and criminal documentation. An individual could alter his/her own records to eradicate nefarious histories. Or an individual could alter anyone's electronic documentation for any reason. Information Warfare outlines almost every kind of informational disaster imaginable leaving the reader to think there may be no way out of the quagmire that is the new information age. However, author Winn Schwartau details current trends in Information Warfare and inspires the dialogue necessary to establish a National Information Policy, a constitution for Cyberspace and an Electronic Bill of Rights
