Exploding Data: Reclaiming Our Cyber Security in the Digital Age

The most dangerous threat we—individually and as a society and country—face today is no longer military, but rather the increasingly pervasive exposure of our personal information; nothing undermines our freedom more than losing control of information about ourselves. And yet, as daily events underscore, we are ever more vulnerable to cyber-attack. In this bracing book, Michael Chertoff makes clear that our laws and policies surrounding the protection of personal information, written for an earlier time, need to be completely overhauled in the Internet era.

This event was hosted by WAC Orange County with promotional partners including: World Affairs Councils of America, Los Angeles WAC & TH, and WAC San Diego.
