NEW YORK TIMES and WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER

Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flip side: our technology can be turned against us. And just over the horizon is a tidal wave of scientific progress that will leave our heads spinning—from implantable medical devices to drones and 3-D printers, all of which can be hacked, with disastrous consequences.

With explosive insights based on a career in law enforcement and counterterrorism, leading authority on global security Marc Goodman takes readers on a vivid journey through the darkest recesses of the Internet. He explores how bad actors are primed to hijack the technologies of tomorrow. Provocative, thrilling, and ultimately empowering, Future Crimes will serve as an urgent call to action that shows how we can take back control of our own devices and harness technology’s tremendous power for the betterment of humanity—before it’s too late.

An Amazon Best Book of the Month for March 2015: It won’t surprise many people to read that computers, networks, and personal information are under constant attack. Most of us install a commonly available anti-virus program, mind our clicks, and hope for the best. More than that seems like work, and stories of data theft have become so ubiquitous that a certain amount of desensitization is probably inevitable. Well, Goodman’s book should take care of that. When your C.V. includes titles like “futurist-in-residence with the FBI,” you’ve seen who’s creeping through those internet pipes, and it’s harrowing; his litany of cyber criminals and their multitudinous misdeeds are often shocking in their inventiveness and audacity, and Goodman brings the nightmares one after another at an almost breathless pace. But not all is hopeless–Goodman aims to educate, offering from high-level policy to practical layman’s advice for buttoning down your own data. Despite the scare factor, it’s a fun, fast, and fascinating 400 pages. My only quibble is with the title, which implies a coming threat. The threat is here, and the future is now. –Jon Foro

but he also offers good strategies and best practices that you can employ to … I have been involved with computer, network, and Internet security since the mid ’70s. I started programming operating systems in 1968. This book collects all the threats we have faced historically in the first dozen chapters. Then Mr Goodman paints a very clear picture of the security and privacy threats we face in the next five to ten years. This book is a must read for everyone. Granted some parts of the book might get a little technical for some folks. Don’t that stop you from reading it…

People of all walks of life are becoming increasingly dependent on technology, while simultaneously expecting the black box that delivers it to “just work” without their understanding of how if works. This book is a very approachable and welcome view of the risks we face below the surface and how we can protect ourselves.

Amazon Customer says:

Future Crimes does a great job of describing the dangers of our headlong rush … Future Crimes does a great job of describing the dangers of our headlong rush to create an connected world in spite of the daily reports of lack of security and invasions of personal information. As the title suggests, the book goes beyond the things we’re constantly hearing about on the news today to the risks that may develop in the future including bio-hacking. Written so those who are moderately literate with today’s technology can follow. I’d suggest to anyone who is using today’s…
