“At a time when cybercrime has become endemic and with the onset of quantum computing, Khaled is spot on in his contention that if you can’t name the threat, you cannot mitigate the threat.
It is noteworthy that he created the term Geo-Poli-Cyber™ way back in 2012 differentiating financially motivated cyber attacks from devastating and destructive political, ideological, extremist, and geopolitical cyber threats.
The notion of the need to shift strategic mindset focus from cyber security to Survivability is key. A must read in this ever changing political and economic landscape.”
Anthony, Lord St John of Bletso.
Survivability should be read by every tech-savvy person, every economic professor and advisor, every cyber-security expert, every government official, and every company executive.
The author combined his in-depth knowledge, years of professional experience, and his unique abilities to foresee the future and its gravest of risks to present a very valuable risk and mitigation awareness book.
Survivability should also be used by universities and training agencies to widen business, economics and cyber-security students and top executives’ knowledge, perspectives, and awareness.

“Survivability” by Khaled Fattal will surely be the classic introduction to the interwoven yet complex relations between politics, economics, security, especially geopolitics in our global world.
Based on a wide and comprehensive glo-calised field studies ranging from banking to aviation, Khaled alludes to the most acute and unmitigated threats that might prohibit an organisational “Survivability”.
In this fast-moving world where technology creates the strongest links to opportunities and vulnerabilities to national sovereignty, corporate security, health, safety, and profit, the author astutely challenges conventional thinking. He also explores the most crucial trajectories that society is facing today and in the newly established multipolar world while he courageously provides admirable solutions moving forward.”
