The Inside story of Junaid Hussain - Excerpt from John Carlin’s New Book, Dawn of the Code War


26 Nov 2018

How did Junaid Hussain go from a teenage gamer in England to one of the United States’ top ISIS targets? Morrison & Foerster’s John P. Carlin tells the inside story of the tech-savy terrorist who used modern technology to carry out cybercrimes and extend the digital reach of ISIS across the U.S. and around the world in an excerpt from his new book, Dawn of the Code War, featured in POLITICO Magazine’s “The Friday Cover.”

Dawn of the Code War is a first-hand account based on Mr. Carlin’s 15-year career as a senior federal government official where he served as Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and Chief of Staff to then FBI-Director Robert Mueller. In his practice at Morrison & Foerster, Mr. Carlin serves as chair of the firm’s Global Risk + Crisis Management Group and co-chair of the National Security Practice where he regularly counsels industry-leading organizations in sensitive cyber and other national security matters including CFIUS, internal investigations, and government enforcement actions.
