Security Expert Bruce Schneier Discusses New Book
by Dan Armstrong
Bruce Schneier
Bruce Schneier, an internationally respected security expert and author of the recently published book Liars and Outliers will visit campus for a discussion on Tuesday, March 27, at 7:00 p.m. in the Social Hall.

Known for his refreshingly candid and lucid views, Schnieier has written several books on topics of security and is a sought-after commentator on issues of cyber, personal and national security.

His first bestseller, Applied Cryptography, explained the methodology of secret codes used and deciphered by agencies such at the National Security Agency.

His other books include Secrets and Lies, on computer and network security; Beyond Fear, on personal safety and crime; and Schneier on Security, which takes a wide view of security issues in today’s world.

His latest book, Liars and Outliers, is a philosophical look at the role of trust in society. Forbes says of the book, “Schneier’s book serves as an excellent primer on game theory” which “teaches us is that perfect security is an illusion.”

In addition to books, Schneier writes a monthly e-newsletter, "Crypto-Gram," which is read by more than 150,000 people.

His writing has also appeared in such publications as the New York Times, Forbes, Wired and the Washington Post. He is chief technology officer for security provider BT Counterpane.

His frequent criticism of the Transportation Security Administration and dedicated following have led to his being profiled in Vanity Fair and inspired a popular internet meme, schneierfacts.com.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact David Perry at (708) 524-6052 or dperry@dom.edu.
Time: Tuesday, March 27, 7:00 PM
