Raw, unfiltered, too-hot-for-Wordpress B2B marketing insights, straight to your inbox, every month.

Just finished an excellent primer on digital security: ‘Secrets & Lies’ by Bruce Schneier, the god of security.

Published in ’04 but still super-relevant.

Schneier cuts through a lot of the nonsense, deflates the hype and makes you sceptical about pretty much all security claims.

Weirdly, even though he points out dozens of attacks I never thought about, I ended up feeling fairly relaxed about security. You do what you can and hope they catch the bastards.

He’s the CTO of BT Counterpane, a Velocity client. We’ll be fliming an interview with him for a film and iPod mailer (more on this when it’s done). Looking forward to meeting the man.
