Imagine a virus that infects every computer and electronic device in the United States. And then imagine a terrorist plotting to activate that virus, just as the federal government awakens to the threat and musters its resources to stop it. Except that it’s happening in a dysfunctional political climate, as the president is being impeached.
That’s the plot of a new novel titled The President Is Missing authored by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and author James Patterson. President Clinton said that the novel is designed to get people to think about cybersecurity and also to think about what it means to be an American in the 21st century, and what we’re really for and what we really believe in.
The US is vulnerable to cyber attacks on the entire national infrastructure. President Clinton and Patterson’s book should inspire the new generations not to be afraid of the adversity but to engage in sophisticated preparation strategies such as the ones offered in programs by GLDNAcademy, Terrapinn Training and Marcep.
