    Default The Cyber sphere post-Snowden: a security engineer writes

    Professor Ross Anderson is a SME on cyber and security engineering @ Cambridge University and is writing a new book. One chapter is an examination of the cyber sphere post-Snowden revelations; it is 32 pgs. and is free to view. The author invites comments and explains his purpose here:
    Today I put online a chapter on Who is the Opponent, which draws together what we learned from Snowden and others about the capabilities of state actors, together with what we’ve learned about cybercrime actors as a result of running the Cambridge Cybercrime Centre. Isn’t it odd that almost six years after Snowden, nobody’s tried to pull together what we learned into a coherent summary?

    Professor Ross is able take an enormous amount of information, show how it is related and/or connected, and present it in a very comprehensible manner. Absorbing the volume of what he presents is like drinking from a fire hose; unfortunately much of what flows doesn't taste too good.

    Most non-technical readers, my self included, are going to conclude the answer to protecting yourself in the cyber world is, "you can't".

    Read the article, it is well worth your time.
