M-Unition Podcast Series: Bruce Schneier Discusses the Advanced Persistent Threat, Cyberwar and Feudalism
With news outlets flooded with talk of advanced targeted threats and Mandiant’s recently released APT1 report, we wanted to know what industry experts thought of the security industry today.
We sat down and spoke with Bruce Schneier about his thoughts on where the security industry is going and to get insight into his new book he is working on. "Cyberwar is based on fear and rhetoric", according to Schneier, "and it is damaging for us to push war rhetoric because it makes us feel helpless." He goes on to say that if we feel a sense of helplessness we naturally can’t do anything to protect our systems. It requires a shift in how we view the situation.
