The Perfect Weapon explores the quandary of how to use and defend against cyber-attacks. Author David E. Sanger describes the perfection of cyber weapons as their almost limitless ability to steal money, pilfer secrets, sabotage critical infrastructure, undermine democracies, and tear societies apart at the seams. Cyber weapons are available to large and small powers, democracies and dictators and they have altered the geopolitical landscape forever.

The author takes on the difficult policy questions that address how nations can effectively respond to, deter, and defend against cyber attacks that modern information technology and its destructive potential have spawned. This book is sourced almost exclusively from the author’s firsthand interactions with world leaders, cyber experts, technology CEOs, and security leaders around the world.
