The only thing fictional about The Alexandria Project is that it hasn't happened yet


Today, everything is controlled through the Internet.  And by "everything" I mean everything.  Communications.  The financial system.  Government.  Transportation.  The power grid.  The list has no end, and our reliance on the Internet increases every day. That would all be well and good if we were spending the same effort making the Internet secure as we are making it useful.  But we haven't, and we still aren't.  If the Internet were ever to be taken down, life as we know it would literally come to a halt.  

When I released my book I wrote on the jacket, "The good news is that what you read in The Alexandria Project  is fictional.  The bad news is that it's fictional only in the sense that it hasn't happened yet." 

Since then, more than half of what I imagined in the book now has happened, and that's bad news indeed.

I've represented many of the organizations that develop, support and apply the standards upon which cybersecurity is based, and am actively involved in dealing with cybersecurity attacks as they happen.  Everything you read in this book really could happen.  Between the covers of this book, it's a fun read.  But in real life?

Not so much.
