The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World
Foremost security expert (Wired) and best-selling author Bruce Schneier shows how data has led to a double-edged Internet - a Web that gives power to the people but is abused by the institutions on which those people depend. In Data and Goliath, Schneier reveals the full extent of surveillance, censorship and propaganda in society today, examining the risks of cybercrime, cyberterrorism and cyberwar. He shares technological, legal and social solutions that can help shape a more equal, private and secure world. This is a book everyone with an Internet connection - or bank account or smart device or car, for that matter - needs to read.
Bruce Schneier is founder and chief technical officer at Counterpane Internet Security, a managed-security monitoring company.
