While Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is being considered as backbone of development, it has also given rise to the new vulnerabilities arising from its application to nearly whole spectrum of political, societal and military undertakings. The creation of US cyber command directly under White House is the outcome of the recognition of cyber threat as one of the most serious economic and national security challenges. Many Russians argue that the danger of cyber warfare ranks second only to that of nuclear war.

Cyber Warfare: The Power of the Unseen aims at demystifying the concept of cyber warfare beyond technical jargons and what hits the media headlines. It attempts to assess Indian cyber power and to identify National Critical Information Infrastructure (NCII). It address the issues of how India could secure its cyber space by building up credible cyber offence, cyber defence and cyber deterrence capabilities. The book also proposes a cyber war strategy for India.

An assessment of Chinese cyber war capabilities and some pointers to why china will peruse cyber warfare more aggressively in future have also been provided. The book also deals with cyber terrorism, challenges for law enforcement agencies and information security standards.

For providing an overarching perspective of Cyber Warfare encompassing social, economic, political, technical and military dimensions the book is an essential read to all thinking soldiers, and those who are interested in cyber warfare and cyber security issues at any level of hierarchy.
