Dont be so confident, says Misha Glenny, acclaimed journalist and author of the international bestseller McMafia. His explosive new book DarkMarket explores the rise of hackers and how — through cyber crime, cyber warfare, and cyber industrial espionage — they have supplanted traditional crime syndicates to become the new global mafia.Governments and the private sector are losing billions of dollars each year, fighting an ever-morphing, often invisible, and highly intelligent new breed of criminal: the hacker. By investigating the rise and fall of the criminal website DarkMarket, Glenny has uncovered the most vivid, alarming, and illuminating stories. He takes us from Google headquarters in California to Turkeys National Intelligence Ageny in Istanbul to the Internet cafes of Odessa, Ukraine, to introduce us to and explain all the players in this clandestine world — the criminals, the geeks, the police, the security experts, and the victims — and he places everyone and everything in a rich brew of politics, economics and history.Painstakingly researched and completely engrossing, DarkMarket takes us on a journey around the globe to unravel the biggest threats facing the twenty-first century. This is a must read for anyone who wants to learn about what is happening online and how to protect themselves.
