A presentation about the mirage of security

2011-05-12

I want to tip you about this presentation about security and how it can be understood in different ways. The presentation is held by Bruce Schneier, a computer security guru. Here’s an excerpt that describes the presentation:

“The feeling of security and the reality of security don’t always match, says computer-security expert Bruce Schneier. At TEDxPSU, he explains why we spend billions addressing news story risks, like the “security theater” now playing at your local airport, while neglecting more probable risks — and how we can break this pattern.”
