Stories from the Frontlines of the Global Cyberwar
Cybersecurity expert Theresa Payton tells battlefront stories from the global war being conducted through clicks, swipes, internet access, technical backdoors and massive espionage schemes. She investigates the cyberwarriors who are planning tomorrow’s attacks, weaving a fascinating yet bone-chilling tale of Artificial Intelligent mutations carrying out attacks without human intervention, “deepfake” videos that look real to the naked eye, and chatbots that beget other chatbots. Finally, Payton offers readers telltale signs that their most fundamental beliefs are being meddled with and actions they can take or demand that corporations and elected officials must take before it is too late.
Theresa Payton has dedicated her life’s work to the mission of protecting others and pushing for pragmatic solutions. Manipulated is entertaining, informative, in some cases, even scary and downright shocking. A must-read, it serves as a wake-up call for all of us.
