The information age has opened a new front of adversarial statecraft. The past decades have seen the rise and refinement of conflict enacted in the world of information, with tactics including seeding disinformation, the theft of sensitive data, confusing or obscuring public opinion to forward specific goals, and beyond. Deterrence in the 21st Century asks how, and if it is indeed possible, to deter an enemy in the realm of information warfare.

Treating deterrence as a concept, a policy, a social challenge, and a series of practical solutions, this is a thorough, thoughtful, and expert analysis of one of the most difficult and essential security challenges of our time.
