Stuxnet to Sunburst: 20 Years of Digital Exploitation and Cyberwarfare takes the reader on a journey from the terrorist attacks of 9/11 onwards and the massive insatiable appetite, focus and investment by the Five Eyes agencies, in particular the U.S., to build the capability of digital eavesdropping and industrial espionage. With tens of trillions of dollars moving throughout hundreds of thousands of staff, and many contractors draining the country of intelligence and technical capability, the quest was simple and the outcome horrifying. No one in the world has connected the dots, until now.

From digital eavesdropping and manipulation of the agencies to Stuxnet, this book covers how the world's first use of digital code and digital certificates for offensive purposes against the Iranians and their nuclear power facilities, caused collateral damage. Proceeding to today's SolarWinds attack, code-named Sunburst, the same methods of exploitation and manipulation originally used by the agencies are now being used against companies and governments with devastating effects. The SolarWinds breach has caused knock-on breaches to thousands of client companies including the U.S. government and is estimated to cost more than one trillion dollars. The monster has truly been turned against its creator and due to the lack of security and defence, breaches are occurring daily at an alarming rate. The U.S. and UK governments have little to no answer. The book also contains a chapter on breaches within the COVID-19 sector from research to immunisation and the devastating December 2020 breach of SolarWinds.

Andy is a senior and seasoned innovative executive with over 30 years' experience as a hands-on lateral thinking CEO, coach, and leader. A 'big deal' business accelerator, and inspirational lateral thinker. Andy has crafted, created and been responsible for delivering over £100M of projects Information Classification: General within the Cyber, Technical, Risk and Compliance markets with some of the world's largest leading organisations. Andy has a demonstrable track record of large-scale technical delivery and management within Professional Services, Managed Services and Financial Services environments. Andy has extensive experience of working at C-Level and is well known around the world for his strong business leadership, integrity, acumen, development, and change management. Andy's first book, published in the Autumn of 2021 and titled "Stuxnet to Sunburst, 20 years of digital exploitation and cyber warfare" is a candid, practitioners view, in layman's terms, of how digital warfare over the last 20 years has shaped our world. It uncovers many unknown facts, and projects that the public have been totally unaware of, that is until now. Andy was one of the first, and possibly one of very few people to discover the plethora of insecure SolarWinds domains. It has since been proven that Andy's version of the attack of an insecure sub domain being hijacked and a nefarious website being stood up, is now common knowledge as being the initial access and root cause of the initial infiltration (Sunburst). Andy's research and paper was presented to the United States Senate Intelligence Committee overseeing the SolarWinds breach earlier this year. Andy has just finished writing a second book on his experience and in-depth research of over 1000 companies over the last few years, all of whom have been victims of cyber and ransomware attacks. The book is titled "Ransomware and Cyberwar, the global economic shift". Andy has an uncanny ability to see things, and tell them in straight forward, no nonsense manner and translate them into easily digestible chunks that can be addressed and remediated. His recall, and real examples of cyber and ransomware attacks, covers why attacks occurred, and more importantly, how to prevent them. His findings have been completely supported by Hacker One confirming 96% of hackers hack websites and Statista who confirm the top three initial access points for cybercrime are servers and websites. In 2020 Andy was featured in The Catholic News Agency article on The Vatican breach as he unravelled and assisted The Vatican by identifying 82 out of their 85 domains were insecure. Many were capturing PII data and payments. With 1.2 billion followers online, particularly during Covid-19 lockdowns, Andy may have uncovered the root cause for the world's single largest online digital PII data breach to date.
