Private Companies on the Cyberwar Frontlines

Hosted by

No missiles are flying or guns firing, but the US is engaged in warfare with China and other nations.  It’s hackers, not soldiers, who are on the front lines.  The Military-Internet Complex is a growing part of America’s defense budget…with intimate ties to private industry. In his new book, @ War, Shane Harris writes that “The armies of nations will inevitably meet one another on the cyber battlefield.  But the armies of corporations will meet there, too.” We speak with Harris, a senior correspondent at the Daily Beast,  and with cyber-warrior Shawn Henry, president of CrowdStrike.
