The Internet is powerful but it is not safe. As smart devices proliferate the risks will get worse, unless we act now.

From driverless cars to smart thermostats, the Internet now has direct effects on the physical world. Although this computerized future, often called the Internet of Things, carries enormous potential, best- selling author Bruce Schneier argues that catastrophe awaits in its new vulnerabilities and dangers. Forget data theft; cutting- edge digital attackers can now literally crash your car, pacemaker, and home security system, as well as everyone else's.

In Click Here to Kill Everybody, Schneier sets out detailed solutions that should be required reading for politicians across the world (Financial Times). From principles for a more resilient Internet of Things to a recipe for sane government oversight, Schneier's vision is required reading for anyone invested in human flourishing.

Sober, lucid and often wise in diagnosing how the security challenges posed by the expanding Internet came about, and in proposing what should (but probably won't) be done about them. ? Nature

Reviews for Click Here to Kill Everybody: Security and Survival in a Hyper-connected World

... excellent work... -- The Catholic Herald Schneier's book is sober, lucid and often wise in diagnosing how the security challenges posed by the expanding Internet came about, and in proposing what should (but probably won't) be done about them. -- Nature Schneier skilfully guides readers through serious attacks that have happened already - and moves on to those he believes are just over the horizon... This book is convincing, but not comforting. -- Financial Times
