The cyberattack on Sony Pictures and costly hacks to Sony, Target, Home Depot, Neiman Marcus, and databases containing sensitive data on millions of US federal workers shocked the nation. Despite a new urgency the hacks keep coming from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, the Middle East, and points unknown. They raise a deeply disturbing question: is it beyond the reach of government and tech leaders to resolve? Describes hapless government and industry responses to growing cybersecurity threats. Examines the internal power struggles in the federal government, the paralysis on Capitol Hill, and the industry’s desperate effort to stay ahead of both the bad guys and the government.
