WASHINGTON, Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Richard Stiennon, expert on cyberwar, to launch his latest book at the National Press Club, Thursday, October 29th, 4 PM. There Will Be Cyberwar is a historical narrative of the rise of network-centric war fighting sparked by Admiral Archie Clemins in 1995, and leading to the establishment of US Cyber Command in 2010. Stiennon compiles a litany of security failures within the US military, especially in weapons platforms, to argue that the US in particular is not prepared for the next engagement with a technologically advanced adversary. He builds a case that all future wars will be cyberwars.
Join us at the National Press Club on Thursday for a lecture delivered by Stiennon followed by networking, wine, and cheese. Signed copies of There Will Be Cyberwar: How The Move To Network-Centric War Fighting Has Set The Stage For Cyberwar will be distributed at no cost.
