Discover the extraordinary realities of the world's most advanced cybersecurity companies and tech

In The Battle for Your Computer: Israel and the Growth of the Global Cyber-Security Industry, Israeli Defense Force (IDF) cyberwarfare veteran and tech product leader Alon Arvatz examines the "why" and the "how" of the extraordinarily strong connection between Israel's elite cyber military unit and that country's booming offensive and defensive cybersecurity industry. In the book, you'll explore the central role played by Israel in the global fight for cybersecurity supremacy.

Featuring interviews with some of the world's leading cybersecurity professionals and leaders, The Battle for Your Computer explains how the IDF's "Unit 8200" became the globe's most fruitful incubator of cyber technologies. You'll also find:

  • Explanations of how the technologies that protect your own computers at home and at work probably began their lives in IDF personnel or equipment
  • The stories of the men and women working to protect Israel and how they pivoted to protecting her technology against attack
  • Answers to fascinating questions like: How does an offensive cyber company decide to whom to sell its tech?

An endlessly engrossing take on an equally engrossing subject, The Battle for Your Computer is a must-read for laypeople and cyber experts alike.

ALON ARVATZ is a veteran of the Israel Defense Force's elite cyber unit called "Unit 8200." He is the CEO and Co-founder at PointFive and one of the leading entrepreneurs, angel investors, and tech leaders in Israel's cyber industry.
