Bruce Schneier is an internationally-renowned Security Technologist and author.
Described by The Economist as a "security guru," he is best known as a refreshingly
candid and lucid security critic and commentator. When people want to know how
security really works, they turn to Schneier. His first bestseller, "Applied
Cryptography" explained how the arcane science of secret codes actually works,
and was described by Wired as "the book the National Security Agency wanted never
to be published." His book on computer and network security, "Secrets and Lies",
was called by Fortune a "jewel box of little surprises you can actually use." His
current book, "Beyond Fear" tackles the problems of security from the small to the
large: personal safety, crime, corporate security, national security.
