A Book Event

In Skating on Stilts, former Homeland Security official Stewart A. Baker examines the technologies we love and finds that they are likely to empower new forms of terrorism. He posits that unless we change our current course a few degrees, it will be impossible to head off future disasters that are inherent in new technologies such as computer networks and biotech. Drawing on his Homeland Security experience, he argues for building prudent new security measures around these key information networks. While there will be security versus privacy concerns to address, failure to act upon the threat in the technology realm risks both.
