Speaking at a panel discussion Wednesday titled “Identity Insecurity—Another Data Hurricane Without ‘Building Codes’,” he discussed how new regulations are inevitable in light of recent privacy and data misuse episodes and …

“For the company, it’s fantastic; they have this whole big security strategy and you can see a big hole where we belong, and they see that,” Schneier told SearchSecurity while we waited for lunch to be rolled out…

SAN FRANCISCO—Between Target, Home Depot, Sony Pictures and many others, 2014 was undeniably the year of the data breach, and companies are finally realizing the likelihood that they could be next.

“Last year was being called the ‘year of the breach,’” said Bruce Schneier, CTO of Resilient Systems, formerly Co3 Systems. “Now, you and I know every year [has] been the year of the breach. But last year there were a bunch of really high-profile breaches where the companies involved did a terrible job of responding, that they were actually in chaos and it looked that way.”…

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.

"It’s software that allows companies to coordinate their response," Schneier says. "You put in your response plan—or if you don’t have one, it generates best practices. It knows the laws; it knows the regulations. You tell it who does what. And when an incident happens, it generates tasks, it follows up on them, and it makes sure that everything that’s supposed to get done gets done."…

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. Schneier, chief technology security officer with BT Counterpane, finishes by discussing whether governments and corporations can drive the change needed to ensure better …

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…

  • March 1, 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…

Video: Bruce Schneier on Security for Cloud Computing

  • April 9, 2010

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.
