John Carlin, with Morrison & Foerster.

In his new book,Dawn of the Code War,” former assistant attorney general and current Morrison & Foerster partner John P. Carlin writes about the growing cybersecurity threats against global companies and Democratic governments posed by nations including Russia, China, North Korea and Iran, terrorist organizations and crime rings. Carlin and co-author Garrett M. Graff, a national security journalist who works at the Aspen Institute’s Cybersecurity & Technology Program, believe it is time that everyone— including corporate counsel, law firms, government officials—stop regarding cyberattacks and social-media disinformation campaign wars as science fiction, and realize it is now a fact of modern life and international relations, soon to worsen with the advent of the internet of things.

“It is putting companies in the front lines of a national security threat in an undeclared war,” he said.
