In the midst of a deadly new arms race, the global CyberWar is heating up. And, the stakes are no longer limited to the virtual world of computers.
As internet connections multiply, so too do points of attack and risks to national security. Governments the world over are competing to dominate a new battlefield: cyberspace.
Already, highly sophisticated, stealthy computer programs can take over and even destroy the control systems that regulate everything from food factories to gas pipelines, power plants, and chemical facilities—even our cars.
Carte Blanche examines the murky realm of criminal and strategic hacking as we explore the chilling new reality of cyberwar in which no nation or individual is safe from attack.
