This is How They Tell Me the World Ends: Virtual Book Talk (the untold story of the cyberweapons market and a new kind of global warfare)
On Thurs. June 24, join a book talk with New York Times reporter Nicole Perlroth, author of This is How They Tell Me the World Ends
The cyber arms race is not just a battle between nation states — it leaves citizens vulnerable to attack too. Passwords get stolen, critical public systems like energy grids and hospitals are susceptible to breaches and our personal devices are at risk of spyware and surveillance. Each of these risks require specific, evidence-informed policy responses.
In her new book, “This is How They Tell Me the World Ends: The Cyberweapons Arms Race,” New York Times cybersecurity reporter Nicole Perlroth, reveals the untold story of the cyberweapons market — the most secretive, invisible, government-backed market on earth. A terrifying first look at a new kind of global warfare that impacts individuals, civil society, industry, and governments alike around the globe.
Join the Cybersecure Policy Exchange on Thursday, June 24, 2021 from 1:00PM – 2:00PM ET as we host a virtual book talk with author Nicole Perlroth in conversation with Charles Finlay, Executive Director of the Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst to discuss the rising global threat of cyberwarfare that lurks within the darkest corners of our digital existence — and what we can do about it.
