About this title

Synopsis:

Give students something to think about when they’re next using their computers—the dangers of cyberterrorism. At no time in history has information been so accessible to the individual, or so vulnerable to attack by a single crafty terrorist armed with only a computer and an Internet connection. In spite of developments in encryption (protective coding), firewalls (barriers to unauthorized access), and other security systems, there is always the threat that criminals will hack through a computer network’s security system, from any location in the world, no matter how remote. Is there any way to stop or prevent cyberterrorism, or are we doomed to be thrust back into the relative dark ages of the pre-digital era in the blink of an eye—or the click of a mouse?

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10–These volumes open with realistic what-if scenarios and continue with chapters that describe real dangers and what can be done to prevent them. Cyberterrorism envisions a Hollywood-style power outage, for example, and Killer Viruses imagines a boy affected by illness, in a vignette that's reminiscent of the 1918 flu pandemic. These descriptions will draw readers in and show them that it's necessary to consider facts when confronted by such a situation, without becoming distracted by the dramatic aspects of the problem. For the most part, the books do an excellent job of imparting information. The opening scene in Nuclear Annihilation might be a bit too scary for some readers, and World Financial Meltdown misidentifies the date of Hurricane Katrina's landfall. However, this series has much to offer, such as an objective perspective on controversial topics like climate change. For this, and for of-the-moment topics, the series is a good choice.
