Winn has lived Cybersecurity since 1983, and now says, “I think, maybe, I’m just starting to
understand it.” His predictions about the internet & security have been scarily spot on. He coined
the term “Electronic Pearl Harbor” while testifying before Congress in 1991. His seminal book,
“Information Warfare” showed the world how and why massive identify theft, cyber-espionage,
nation-state hacking and cyber-terrorism would be an integral part of the future (today’s present).
Currently he is exploring “Metawar,” a term he coined to describe the art and science of reality
distortion and addiction in the metaverse. Increasingly impressive immersive technologies, “active
metacontent orchestration”, and powerful feedback systems will create alternate realities, such that
at some distant date, the metapoint will be reached, where persistent immersive simulations will be
indistinguishable from our default ‘reality’. The security, privacy, ethics, and global policy
implications are staggering. (The book “Metawar” will be available 3Q23)
His last book, “Analogue Network Security” is a time-based probabilistic approach to justifiable
security. By hybridizing analogue and digital security techniques, he offers methods to “fix security
and the internet”, including fake news, spam, phishing, DDoS and more. It will twist your mind. “The
