Guy-Philippe Goldstein, son of Jacques Goldstein and Hedva Ser, a painter, graduated from HEC and the Kellogg MBA at Northwestern University. Guy-Philippe is a management consultant and an analyst of cyber warfare with a focus on both global stability and the human & economic environment for cybersecurity. He is a lecturer on cyberpower at the Ecole de Guerre Economique in Paris and a Senior Analyst on the Cyberdesk for Wikistrat, a global network of national security & strategy subject matter experts. He contributes to the Journal of Military & Strategic Affairs, a publication of the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel-Aviv, and has spoken at prestigious events including TEDx Paris, TEDx Athens (watch videos below), and the PWC Luxembourg Cyber-day. He is a keynote speaker at Tel Aviv University’s inaugural cyber-warfare conference and collaborates with PWC France on cybersecurity articles and studies for Harvard Business Review France's Cybersecurity Chair.

As a consultant and researcher, Guy-Philippe has published several studies on the economic cost of cyber incidents with PwC and Bessé, assessing the loss to the asset value of companies at 10% to 20% on average in case of poor responses or preparation. He also warned as early as 2011-2013 about the risk of international destabilization by cyber weapons using Robert Jervis' model of international relations. More recently, as early as 2021, he mentioned the risk of a "2.0" cold war between China and the United States, the stakes of which would be technological dominance. He was named by L'Usine Nouvelle as one of the "100 talents in cybersecurity" in France.

Guy-Philippe Goldstein is renowned for his literary contributions. His acclaimed novel, Babel Minute Zero, published in 2007, portrays a conflict between China and the United States for control of Taiwan, with the "Cyberspace" as one of the pivotal battlegrounds. The novel gained recognition in Israel in 2011 when Professor Yitzhak Ben-Israel, in charge of a commission on cyber development, recommended it to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who cited it as influential in shaping his cybersecurity policies.

Seven Days Before the Night, Guy-Philippe's second novel published in 2017, explores the intersection of cyber risk and nuclear terrorism amidst the rise of Hindu nationalism. Written in the form of a countdown, the novel serves as a thought-provoking reflection on global cyber threats.


In addition to his novels, Guy-Philippe has authored Cyber Defense and Cyber Power in the 21st Century, an essay that delves into the transformations of national power with cyber technology. This essay was recognized as one of the Cyber Award winners at the European Cyber Week 2021.

Guy-Philippe Goldstein has also contributed several short speculative stories, addressing topics such as the collapse of the insurance world due to cyber risk and new cyber and cognitive tactics in the context of the cold war 2.0 between China and the United States.
