Video: Bruce Schneier on Data Privacy and Google's Feudal Model of Security

Like the rest of the world, the day-to-day function of the Internet relies on trust, according to author and security luminary Bruce Schneier. However, that trust is being frequently and seriously violated by many of companies that dominate the Internet.

In this video interview, Schneier, chief technology security officer with BT Counterpane, discusses the ways in which trust -- and, in turn, data privacy -- is threatened on the Internet, and explains how Google, Apple and others have adopted a feudal model of security, in which their customers have little, if any, recourse to ever reclaim data that rightfully belongs to them.
