Are you really safer than before 9/11?
We've sacrificed our privacy, convenience, and sometimes even our dignity to feel safer. But has it bought us security, or merely an illusion?
Bruce Schneier, world-renowned security technologist, recognizes that the ultimate security risk is people. In this compendium of articles and blog postings, the bestselling author of Secrets and Lies explains why many security practices are in fact security risks, and how we can truly become safer — not only online, but also on airplanes, at work, at school, and in our daily lives. In a world grown increasingly paranoid, Schneier makes a compelling case for common sense.
