"The Unhackable Internet offers comprehensive and insightful cybersecurity solutions that just may change the Internet forever. It should be required reading for every executive, and policymaker." - Forbes

"The greatest threat to today's global financial system is not financial risk or geopolitical uncertainty, but the danger of cyber-attack through a poorly defended Internet. In TheUnhackable Internet, Tom Vartanian describes in detail how we got to this point and suggests practicable steps that could make us safer. Most important, he makes clear that our openness to such attack is a choice, and one we can change. Governments and markets should listen."-Randal K. Quarles, Chairman and Founder of The Cynosure Group, former Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve System for Supervision, Chairman of the G-20's Financial Stability Board, member of the Federal Open Market Committee, and Under Secretary of the U.S. Treasury

"The UnhackableInternet brings order to the digital wild west. Data is the world's most valuable economic asset and yet we live in the age of eternal breach. Hindsight has proved the folly of Mark Zuckerberg's mantra 'move fast and break things.' We ignore the lessons of history at our peril; a less hackable Internet is the imperative of our time. Vartanian's compelling vision - achievable if we pull together - puts the adults back in charge of the Internet."
