How Hacking Benefits the Rich and Powerful With Bruce Schneier
Hacking itself isn’t good or bad, but the intent behind it is. In his new book, internationally renowned security technologist Bruce Schneier takes hacking out of the world of computing and uses it to analyze the systems that underpin our society. He and Gene talk about this fascinating concept, how it’s central to our society, and how it can be checked. Bruce also offers his advice for those thinking about entering the cybersecurity industry. This is a not-to-be-missed episode from one of the most important voices in cybersecurity today.
