Analysts have coined a phrase for the new wave of cyber sabotage circling the planet—“just short of war.” Not since the invention of the atomic bomb has a mode of destruction represented such devastating potential. But unlike a nuclear arsenal, which is expensive to acquire and difficult to hide, cyber weapons are cheap and easy to deny.

As David Sanger, national security correspondent for The New York Times, points out in his riveting new book—The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage, and Fear in the Cyber Age—cyber weapons are “the great equalizer”. Third-world dictators, terrorists and superpowers can all wield them with equal ease.

The three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author of two books on foreign policy and national security offers insider analysis. Don’t miss this provocative Council program with David Sanger.
