Deb has written a thriller series about an evil corporation called GlobeCom that takes over the world through human chip implants and the hackers who rise up against it to break its backbones and its grip on humanity. In it, she sticks very close to technology and hacks in use today to show the ramifications of tech over reach and couch the hackers as heroes. Her characters are drawn from hackers and agents she's met throughout her career and they have reviewed and approved the story. She is currently wrapping up her second book in the series, which delves more into AI and machine learning. She has written for a general audience, and the story is fast-paced and entertaining with reviewers saying her style is akin to Lee Child.
The book is available at https://www.amazon.com/Breaking-Backbones-Information-Hacker-Trilogy/dp/1665701080/; and her articles, speaking engagements and more information is available at www.debradcliff.com.
