The Lawfare Podcast: Bruce Schneier on 'Click Here to Kill Everybody'

  
Excellent discussion that gets into security concerns around the Internet of Things (tm) without getting wrapped up in a bunch of hype.  I highly recommend a listen!


The Lawfare Podcast: Bruce Schneier on 'Click Here to Kill Everybody'
Security technologist Bruce Schneier's latest book, "Click Here to Kill Everybody: Security and Survival in a Hyper-connected World," argues that it won't be long before everything modern society relies on will be computerized and on the internet. This drastic expansion of the so-called 'internet of things,' Schneier contends, vastly increases the risk of cyberattack. To help figure out just how concerned you should be, last Thursday, Benjamin Wittes sat down with Schneier.

In fact, I had no idea about either the question or the answer when I submitted a “subject access request” to Eldon Insurance Services in December last year.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned, however, in pursuing the Cambridge Analytica scandal, it’s that however weird things look, they can always get weirder.

Because I was simply seeking information, as I have for the last 16-plus months, about what the Leave campaigns did during the referendum – specifically, what they did with data. And the subject access request – a legal mechanism I’d learned about from Paul-Olivier Dehaye, a Swiss mathematician and data expert – was a shot in the dark.
