The Lawfare Podcast: The Hacker’s Mind
How does computer hacking work? When is it good, and when is it bad? And what does it have to teach us about law, politics, and inequality? These are some of the questions that Bruce Schneier, a well-known security expert and lecturer at Harvard’s Kennedy School, answers in his new book, A Hacker’s Mind: How the Powerful Bend Society’s Rules and How to Bend Them Back.
Jack Goldsmith sat down with Bruce to discuss what it means to have a hacker’s mind, why all systems—not just computer systems—are hackable, how and why the powerful and wealthy are typically the most successful hackers, and what AI will mean for hacking various systems.
