The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber Age

  • Wilson Center 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20004 United States (map)

The Wilson Center is hosting an exclusive look at The Perfect Weapon, the striking and sobering new book by acclaimed New York Times National Security Correspondent David Sanger, who researched and wrote while in residence at the Wilson Center. The Perfect Weapon is the gripping inside story of how the rise of cyberweapons transformed geopolitics like nothing since the invention of the atomic bomb. Cheap to acquire, easy to deny, and usable for a variety of malicious purposes -- from crippling infrastructure to sowing discord and doubt -- cyber is now the weapon of choice for democracies, dictators, and terrorists.
