Why sensationalized terrorism coverage makes us overreact to risk.
For most Americans, terrorism is only ever experienced through a television screen or front page of a newspaper. Despite generating massive headlines, terrorism kills a shockingly small number of Americans every year, especially when compared to a problem like gun violence. In terms of the public's attention, terrorism takes up a lot more space than its death toll warrants.
But for cable news networks, terrorism coverage is big business.
WikiLeaks may have exposed the CIA's ability to hack into phones, televisions, cars—pretty much everything, but according to internationally renowned security technologist and author Bruce Schneier, it isn't the intelligence agencies you should be worried about. He's more concerned that these technologies have been around for decades. Bruce is sharing three things to be concerned about with Kristina Guerrero.

Since the 1930s at Bletchley Park, there has been a continuous arms race to both improve and break cryptography. The files leaked by National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden made it clear that governments regularly gather data on average citizens, which makes us wonder if privacy is even possible. Do our carefully designed cryptographic systems protect our information as we expect them to, or are they just thin veils that can easily be pierced by the government? I posed these questions to leading security expert Bruce Schneier.

Do you have secrets? Security expert Bruce Schneier has little patience for those who say they don't.
When asked about government and corporate surveillance, there are some who shrug their shoulders and say they have nothing to fear because they have nothing to hide. Schneier's response?
Erin Ade talks to Bruce Schneier about the efforts of government and private companies to track us and our personal information. However, our outrage over this invasion of privacy is overshadowed by the convenience of using technology. This tension has led to our ongoing, intense debate over the tradeoffs between security and surveillance. To help sort out all of these issues Schneier weighs in.
Bruce Schneier is one of the best-known security professionals both within the field and in the larger world of technology policymaking. He's written 12 books, produces the influential "Schneier on Security" blog and is widely quoted in the press. After a multi-year stint at BT Managed Security Solutions, Schneier has moved to a startup: Co3 Systems. The new company, where he serves as Chief Technology Officer, makes a tool that focuses specifically on security incident response management.
Bruce Schneier, cyber-security expert and author of Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust Society Needs to Thrive, talks about corporate and governmental data collection and surveillance.

Few figures in the IT security landscape command the respect and admiration of so many people as does Bruce Schneier. The well-regarded expert recently changed jobs, moving from BT to become the CTO of Co3 Systems in January of this year.
In a video interview with eSecurity Planet, Schneier explains why the incident response technology that Co3 Systems builds is an important part of the modern IT security lifecycle. A key part of what Co3 does is to automate the details of incident response, he said.
Think the Edward Snowden-NSA storyline is played out? Think again.
"I think this story is going to keep going for at least a year, probably longer," said Bruce Schneier, chief technology officer with Co3 Systems, who is working with The Intercept's Glenn Greenwald to analyze and report on the NSA documents allegedly stolen and leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden. "There's an enormous pile of documents; they're very technical [and] hard to understand, and as you go through them, you find stories."
In this interview recorded at the 2014 RSA Conference, SearchSecurity Editorial Director Robert Richardson sits down with Schneier to discuss his role in reviewing the Snowden documents.
Bruce Schneier appeared on an episode of Inventing the Future with Robert Tercek about the collision between open society and surveillance.
Bruce Schneier is a legendary figure in the security community, well-known for his expertise in cryptography and more recently for his insight into the surveillance activities of the National Security Agency (NSA). Schneier currently serves as the CTO of incident response management vendor Co3 Systems. In an interview with eWEEK at the RSA conference here, Schneier detailed his views on the NSA's surveillance activities. When it comes to domestic surveillance and metadata collection, Schneier firmly believes that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is the right agency to handle that data. He noted that the FBI already has domestic security capabilities and is responsible for the national fingerprint database.
Security expert and technologist Bruce Schneier has told the BBC that he believes the NSA and GCHQ have "betrayed the trust of the internet".
Mr Schneier said: "We have to trust the infrastructure [of the internet]... The fact that it has been subverted in ways we don't understand... we don't know what to trust.
Renowned security expert Bruce Schneier talks with Eben Moglen about what we can learn from the Snowden documents, the NSA's efforts to weaken global cryptography, and how we can keep our own free software tools from being subverted.
Since Edward Snowden's disclosures about widespread NSA surveillance, Americans and people everywhere have been presented with a digital variation on an old analog threat: the erosion of freedoms and privacy in exchange, presumably, for safety and security.
Bruce Schneier knows the debate well. He's an expert in cryptography and he wrote the book on computer security; Applied Cryptography is one of the field's basic resources, "the book the NSA never wanted to be published," raved Wired in 1994. He knows the evidence well too: lately he's been helping the Guardian and the journalist Glenn Greenwald review the documents they have gathered from Snowden, in order to help explain some of the agency's top secret and highly complex spying programs.

Bruce Schneier discusses the latest NSA revelations including the NSA working with tech companies to insert weaknesses into their code.
In an effort to undermine cryptographic systems worldwide, the National Security Agency has manipulated global encryption standards, utilized supercomputers to crack encrypted communications, and has persuaded—sometimes coerced—Internet service providers to give it access to protected data. Is there any way to confidentially communicate online? We speak with security technologist and encryption specialist Bruce Schneier, who is a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. He has been working with The Guardian on its recent NSA stories and has read hundreds of top-secret NSA documents provided by Edward Snowden.

Bruce Schneier & Jonathan Zittrain in Conversation
From Bruce Schneier:
What I've Been Thinking About
I have been thinking about the Internet and power: how the Internet affects power, and how power affects the Internet. Increasingly, those in power are using information technology to increase their power. This has many facets, including the following:
1. Ubiquitous surveillance for both government and corporate purposes -- aided by cloud computing, social networking, and Internet-enabled everything -- resulting in a world without any real privacy.
Big data is a phrase that means a lot of things to a variety of people. For marketers, it means being able to target ads at certain segments of the population more accurately than ever before; for security pros, it means detecting and responding to incidents more quickly; and for every user connected to the Internet, big data means personal privacy on the Internet is gone.
In this video interview, recorded at the 2013 RSA Conference, security industry luminary and author Bruce Schneier uses three high-profile examples to explain why there is currently no privacy on the Internet. Among those examples is the Mandiant APT1 report, which he uses to show how easily even the most disciplined of Internet users can slip up and expose their identities to the world.
"We live in a world where we're ceding a lot of our power to other companies," said Bruce Schneier (@schneierblog), security blogger and author of "Liars and Outliers" in our conversation at the 2013 RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Schneier was referring to companies such as Google and Facebook that control our data as well as companies that control our devices, such as Apple.
"These companies are in charge of our security and we have no choice but to trust them and in many cases their interests don't align with ours," said Schneier. "It's not that these companies are evil.
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.
The digital technologies that so delight us also have a dark side. On this Episode of Inventing the Future with Robert Tercek, the topic of discussion is the future of surveillance technologies. Whether it be the government, big business, organized crime, or even your next door neighbor, chances are you're being tracked and analyzed.
Joining Robert Tercek in asking whether or not privacy is dead are BT Managed Security Solutions' Chief Security Technology Officer, Bruce Schneier and Research Fellow at The Cato Institute, Julian Sanchez.
Paul Muller (@xthestreams), Chief Evangelist, HP Software speaks with two of the HP Protect 2012 keynote speakers about security and risk management.

We don't demand a background check on the plumber who shows up to fix the leaky sink. We don't do a chemical analysis on food we eat. In the absence of personal relationships, we have no choice but to substitute confidence for trust, compliance for trustworthiness.
Bruce Schneier discussed his book Liars and Outliers at the RSA Conference 2012.
Bruce Schneier's latest book, Liars and Outliers, is a departure from his previous landmark books on cryptography and information security. In Liars and Outliers, Schneier pulls back from technology and looks at trust and security and how those very human concepts have evolved in concert with the development of cooperative societies to build the trust and security mechanisms we have today.
In this interview conducted at RSA Conference 2012, Schneier explains his interest in the sociology of security and trust and how today's online interactions are changing the trust dynamic. He paints a not-so-bleak picture of why the Internet remains a trustworthy and viable platform for communication and ecommerce, and talks about whether social networking and technical feedback mechanisms comprise the new trust going forward.
Two RSA Conference Europe 2010 Keynote speakers discuss Bruce Schneier's session on Security, Privacy and the Generation Gap.
In part one of this interview with Bruce Schneier, he discusses the impending shift in how security will be delivered. Schneier expects security to be embedded in Web-based services and sold directly to service providers, rather than to enterprises and end users. This is a radical transformation for the security industry that security professionals must prepare for. Schneier also discusses consumerization and how traditional security technologies and services must adjust as more untrusted devices connect to trusted networks.

BT's Bruce Schneier and Ray Stanton talk security with ComputerWeekly.com's security blogger David Lacey at Infosecurity 2008.
While the media bombards consumers with frightening stories, discussions about security are thwarted by the failure of language to separate the "feeling" and "reality" of security, says security guru Bruce Schneier.
Schneier, author of Applied Cryptography and his most recent book Beyond Fear, reckons there is a fundamental problem with the way humans think about security. And its roots can be drawn back to a failure of language.
"'Security' is a complicated word," Schneier told ZDnet.com.au at linuxconf08.
"You can feel secure and there's the reality of security -- how secure you are.
