Summary
The author introduces a strategy of "security resilience" against surprise attacks for a cybered world that is divided between modern, digitally vulnerable city states and more dysfunctional global regions. Its key concepts build on theories of international relations, complexity in social/technical systems, and organizational/institutional adaptation. She tests the strategy for reasonableness in history's few examples of states disrupting rather than conquering and being resilient to attacks, including ancient Athens and Sparta, several British colonial wars, and two American limited wars. She applies the strategy to modern political, social, and technical challenges and presents three kinds of institutional adaptation that predicate the success of the security resilience strategy in response. Finally, the implications are discussed for the future including new forms of cyber aggression like the Stuxnet worm, the rise of the cyber-command concept, and the competition between the U.S. and China as global cyber leaders. This book offers a blueprint for a national cyberpower strategy that is long in time horizon, flexible in target and scale, and practical enough to maintain the security of a digitized nation facing violent cybered conflict
