Data and Goliath: Digital surveillance and what you can do about it

Data and Goliath

Data and Goliath is the title of a soon-to-be published book by Bruce Schneier, a well-known figure in cryptography and currently the Chief Technology Officer of Co3 Systems, a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center, and a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

Data and Goliath is about digital surveillance, its scope, implications and what you can do about it. You don’t have to be a tech-person to want to read this book. If you’re a participant in the digital age (who isn’t?), I think this is one book you’d want to read.

No, I haven’t obtained a preview copy. I just figured that out by reading the table of contents, which Bruce Schneier has published on his blog.
