Details: Almost a quarter-century since the end of the Cold War, the United States is once again engaged in an arms race—only this time the battle is being waged on the information superhighway. As governments and individuals across the globe store more of their highly sensitive information on computer servers, cyber infiltration originating in China, Russia, North Korea, and beyond has the potential to compromise national security and the privacy of millions. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David E. Sanger explores modern strategies to combat cyber threats and protect American interests in an ever-changing world.

David E. Sanger is the chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times and author of Confront and Conceal: Obama’s Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power.
