Natsuya Uesugi: hacking away at misconceptions

PHOENIX (PRWEB) July 29, 2014

With the controversial revelations about the National Security Agencys data collection and the breaking news stories of hackers stealing personal information, many people find their trust failing in the computer systems they use daily to manage their entire lives.

Information security is important and there are a lot of people who have an interest in using it unethically, said Natsuya Uesugi, the author of Grydscaen: War.

As a series, Grydscaen is a high-octane sci-fi adventure epic about two brothers on opposite sides of a war. As a result of a nuclear conflagration, two superpower nations battle against each other using psychic operatives, giant robots and information warfare.

Uesugi has worked with systems security, software and code with a major software company.
Although hackers are usually viewed negatively, he wants people to know that there are different kinds of hackers that engage in code cracking for a multitude of reasons.

Obviously, some do it just to make money, Uesugi said. However, there are also hackers who hunt for information to help the world. Theyre almost like journalists in that they go straight to the source to find out whats going on.

Not only is hacking meditated in the series, but also family, loyalty, sexuality and gender identity. Grydscaen shows that the difference between oppression and liberation lies in the choices we make and the principles we value.
