Bruce Schneier, arguably the world’s foremost authority on computer security, has explored security issues ranging from protecting your password to illegal wiretapping. This collection of Schneier’s best op-ed pieces, columns, and blog posts goes beyond technology, offering his insight into everything from the risk of identity theft (vastly overrated) to the long-range security threat of unchecked presidential power and the surprisingly simple way to tamper-proof elections.

This book is a must-read for anyone who values security at any level—business, technical, or personal.

You’ll discover:
  • Why data mining will never protect us from terrorists
  • Why computer security is fundamentally an economic problem
  • If sacrificing our privacy has made us more secure
  • Why refusing a driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants actual reduces security
  • Why we overestimate some risks and underestimate others
  • Why national ID cards won’t make us safer, only poorer
  • The industry power struggle over controlling our computers
