E-Book Urges U.S. to Address Hostile Social Manipulation

The e-book, Hostile Social Manipulation: Present Realities and Emerging Trends, from the RAND Corporation’Research Report Series, examines the complicated relationship between modern democracies and the real and potential effects of cyber manipulation on their constituents.

Focusing specifically on the two most pressing and prominent threats, China and Russia, the report explores where we stand with the technology being used against us now, and how we can prepare for more sophisticated attacks as that technology evolves.

The authors urge the U.S. to take immediate action in funding and understanding the complex issue of social manipulation. They believe putting policies and infrastructure in place now will enable us to keep pace with the rapidly-expanding nature of cyber threats in the future.
