A world of smart devices means the Internet can kill people We need to act NowEverything is a computer Ovens are computers that make things hot; refrigerators are computers that keep things cold These computers―from home thermostats to chemical plants―are all online The Internet once a virtual abstraction can now sense and touch the physical worldAs we open our lives to this future often called the Internet of Things we are beginning to see its enormous potential in ideas like driverless cars smart cities and person. I m a big fan of Bruce Schneier and follow his blog for many years I bought this book immediately after its release and finished it in less than a weekPluses It is a very good review of what was happening in ITInternetIoT security field during the last few years with all main events mentioned everything is thoroughly source referenced and explained the Notes part takes one uarter on the book Even despite some dryness in delivery style the factual part on the book is very interesting to read the story catches you in a good sense Information is mostly packed in high density way the book is pretty short 200 pages and to the point while at the same time it can be easily read by non professionals in the fieldMinuses The proposalprediction parts look less focused comparing to the factual part and to the standard one may expect from the work of this caliber It is hard to say what exactly happened here but it seems like the author either tried to sueeze as many conclusions as possible in limited amount of pages or he simply did not plan to analyse current IoT security trends that much at all In too may places it goes like Something is definitely going to happen and it may be either A B or C Full stop Huh That s it The weather tomorrow is going to be nice Or bad Or it may be raining but sunny and cloudy weather is also possible Well if you know nothing about the different weather phenomena this is a lot of new and interesting information If you read this to know what going on the weather front sorry but this information is useless spoiler The same applies to the chapters about government role in Internet security Once again author provides a lot of very precise facts on what happened in the past in the area how government regulation in the security field came to be what they are now and what to expect in the nearest future and how all these will probably be unable to solve any existing challenges very thoughtful analysis and based on solid factual evidence So what s the author s proposed solution Let s create new government agency Not even I think it s going to end up in creating new government agency no To solve this we need a new agency Even though you just showed how exactly it will not work I don t get this logic at all And this is kind of culminating point of the book if there is one Very disappointingConclusion tl dr if you happen to be working in IT or IoT security field you will probably get very little new information from this book both the factual one and analysis If you are somebody who are new to the field you may find parts of the book interesting or even like revelationsThe conclusions part of the book is somewhat blurry less focused and does not sound really convincing Given the uality of the source material and knowing Mr Schneier reputation I was expecting insights into what s going in the industry than this book has delivered
