Cyber Blockades is the first book to examine the phenomena of blockade operations in cyberspace, large-scale attacks on infrastructure or systems that aim to prevent an entire state from sending or receiving electronic data. Cyber blockades can take place through digital, physical, and/or electromagnetic means. Blockade operations have historically been considered acts of war, thus their emergence in cyberspace has significant implications for international law and for our understanding of cyber warfare. The author defines and explains the emerging concept of ´´cyber blockades´´ and presents a unique comparison of blockade operations in five different domains -- on land, at sea, in the air, in space, and in cyberspace.Blockade operations have occurred in cyberspace and will doubtlessly be used again in the future, by both state and non-state actors alike, because of the unique advantages of this type of attack. This book offers recommendations for policymakers contemplating or confronted by such attacks. Cyber Blockades is also a must-read for scholars and students of security studies, terrorism, substate groups, and the future of warfare.The book is published by Georgetown University Press. 1.

When a series of events bring Chad Hunter and hot Agency super spy Sirena back together again, the action gets ramped up immediately.

While attending a United Nations World Conference on International Telecommunications in Brazil, Chad runs into Sirena. After a terrorist group bombs the hotel, killing a number of diplomats, and almost killing Chad and Sirena, the two of them join forces to discover who was behind the bombing. Did the bombing have anything to do with Chad’s weapons test? Eventually, Sirena must choose between her allegiance with the Agency and her friendship with Chad, while both run for their lives from the remote Ecuadorian forest to the steamy shores of Columbia, fighting a brutal force of hired killers, government agents, and a cabal of bureaucratic numbskulls determined to bring them both down. 1.
