Beyond fear : thinking sensibly about security in an uncertain world by Bruce Schneier( Book )
22 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In "Beyond Fear," Bruce Schneier invites us to take a critical look at not just the threats to our security, but the ways in which we're encouraged to think about security by law enforcement agencies, businesses of all shapes and sizes, and our national governments and militaries. Schneier believes we all can and should be better security consumers, and that the trade-offs we make in the name of security - in terms of cash outlays, taxes, inconvenience, and diminished freedoms - should be part of an ongoing negotiation in our personal, professional, and civic lives, and the subject of an open and informed national discussion. With a well-deserved reputation for original and sometimes iconoclastic thought, Schneier has a lot to say that is provocative, counter-intuitive, and just plain good sense. He explains in detail, for example, why we need to design security systems that don't just work well, but fail well, and why secrecy on the part of government often undermines security. A skeptic of much that's promised by highly touted technologies like biometrics, Schneier is also a refreshingly positive, problem-solving force in the often self-dramatizing and fear-mongering world of security pundits. Schneier helps the reader to understand the issues at stake, and how to best come to one's own conclusions, including the vast infrastructure we already have in place, and the vaster systems--some useful, others useless or worse--that we're being asked to submit to and pay for
Schneier on security by Bruce Schneier( )
18 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 1,241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of essays on security: on security technology, on security policy, and on how security works in the real world was previously published between June 2002 and June 2008. They offer a computer security expert's insights into a wide range of security issues, including the risk of identity theft (vastly overrated), the long-range security threat of unchecked presidential power, why computer security is fundamentally an economic problem, the industry power struggle over controlling your computer, and why national ID cards won't make us safer, only poorer. Schneier recognizes that the ultimate security risk is people and that many security paractices are, in fact, secuirty risks. -- From publisher description

Economics of information security and privacy III by Bruce Schneier( )
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy and computer science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between attackers and defenders, identified market failures dogging Internet security, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. Current contributions build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools to not only understand threats, but also strengthen security through novel evaluations of available solutions. Economics of Information Security and Privacy III addresses the following questions: how should information risk be modeled given the constraints of rare incidence and high interdependence; how do individuals' and organizations' perceptions of privacy and security color their decision making; how can we move towards a more secure information infrastructure and code base while accounting for the incentives of stakeholders?

Hauptbeschreibung Wir verlangen keine Sicherheitsüberprüfung des Klempners, der zu uns kommt, um einen undichten Abfluss zu reparieren. Wir führen an Nahrungsmitteln, die wir essen, keine chemische Analyse durch. Vertrauen und Zusammenarbeit waren Probleme, die der Mensch auf seinem Weg zum sozialen Wesen als erste zu lösen hatte. Heute, da die traditionellen Mechanismen des Vertrauens in unserer globalen Gesellschaft nicht länger funktionieren, gehören sie wieder zu den Aufgaben, die wir dringend angehen müssen.
