Security focuses on prevention, and prevention requires prediction. Security in 2020 presents views of security’s future from a cross-section of security practitioners and observers. It serves as a map that readers can consult as they plot a course to the future.

Contributors looked ahead to 2020—near enough that the predictions have a chance of being accurate, and far enough out to make for interesting forecasts. Some chapters are technical and practical, while others express personal views on the world and its future. Time will tell which views of the future were right, which were wrong, and which were never thought of but should have been.

The book contains 19 chapters on major security issues of the future, plus responses to several surveys of security professionals and security graduate students. The text provides a general vision of what the future may demand from the security profession and may spark ideas on how to prepare for and meet the challenges of 2020.

Technology, crime, demography, public policy, disasters: what should you expect in the coming years? See what today’s security professionals predict—and how you can prepare to meet the security challenges of 2020.
