Clinton Watts is a former FBI Special Agent, U.S Army officer, and cyber-security expert. In his book, Messing with the Enemy: Surviving in a Social Media World of Hackers, Terrorists, Russians, and Fake News, Watts presents an electrifying look at the use of the modern world's social media for electronic espionage operations, fake news, and misinformation campaigns conducted by terrorist groups and Russian actors who are seeking to influence American politics. He also reveals how these terrorist and cyber criminals use your information and your social network to hack your mind by influencing your preferences, fears, and vulnerabilities. Watts also introduces how to protect ourselves and our country in an era of super-connectedness.
