Summary
"Lucas [examines the cybercrime] confronting our security--both for individuals and nations. The uncomfortable truth is that we do not take cybersecurity seriously enough. Strong regulations on automotive safety or guidelines for the airline industry are commonplace, but when it comes to the Internet, it might as well be the Wild West. Standards of securing our computers and other Internet-connected technology are diverse, but just like the rules of the road meant to protect both individual drivers and everyone else driving alongside them, weak cybersecurity on the computers and Internet systems near us put everyone at risk"--Dust jacket flap
Summary
A senior editor at The Economist examines the catastrophic flaws in cybersecurity, which allows criminals to access and drain bank accounts and access personal information and calls for stronger regulations and bold solutions
