Glass Houses originally titled America the Vulnerable outlines some of the major ways that private citizens corporations and the government itself are exposed to attack through digital measures and closes with measures to strengthen defenses While not as sweeping as Future Crimes Brenner offers a different kind of insider perspective the NSA s Brenner was formally the head of counterintelligence and thus his work primarily concerns itself with national security He argues that an ordinary citizen s desire for privacy and the government s own need for secrecy are essentially the same And what about a citizen s desire for privacy from the NSAchirpBrenner isn t nearly as fear inducing as writers like Marc Goodman but his piece stands out because of his role within the government While arguing for better data hygiene he also criticizes the still disjointed approach of DC to cybersecurity There are several cyber organizations within the aegis of the government but all of them have completely different priorities and none of them truly cover civilian infrastructure that the government relies on One of the early points Brenner makes is that not only is everyone utterly exposed to digital threats hacking tools are cheap marketable and encouraged by governments in China and Russia but the boundaries between public and private are increasingly gone Corporations are now under attack by national governments and the United States relies and on private services for essential functions Brenner likens the current division of cyberdefense one on military security one on collecting information about foreign states and securing the information of the government to that which prevailed in the armed services before World War 2 Then the Army and Navy departments were separate and rivals they are both contained within the Department of Defense and officers commonly serve tours in connection to other branchesWhile Brenner doesn t argue for militarization of non military departments he does maintain that closer cooperation is vital The president s cybersecurity czar does nothing but ineffectually urge everyone to work together a la Gladhands in West Side Story Brenner s specific policy recommendations don t involve creating a new Cyber Homeland Security department though instead his measures are subtle He suggests that antitrust laws that discourage ISPs and cybersecurity firms from working closely together be relaxed and that the federal government use its buying power to insist on security from the euipment and software it uses dictating to the market a la Wal Mart Such a demand will filter through to the consumer market shortly enough He also echoes the advice of other books disconnecting the control networks of energy companies from the public Internet Richard Clarke Cyber War and companies practicing deliberate and methodical digitial hygiene various incl Swiped Companies whose networks contain vital information for instance should forbid the use of outside flashdrives and issue instead encrypted drives which are collected and purged periodicallyUnless the current Dear Leader candidates have savvier tech advisors than themselves the outlook of the United States cybersecurity remains fairly grim Glass Houses is effective citizen awareness not technical not long and with uasi fictional scenarios to illustrate how a cyberattack might look and how the mere threat of it might alter foreign policy that stands out especially for the look into the American intelligence community It s unusual to read a book from the NSA s perspectivegiven their secrecy and recurring roles as uber villain in other books about data security but aside from the unapologetically hostile attitude toward Julian Assange there s nothing too partisan I appreciated Brenner s prudent recommendations which are about incentives and pressure and less about outright coercionRelated Future Crimes Everything is Connected Everyone is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It Marc Goodman Cyber War Richard Clarke Another book written about national security this one from a general s perspective Lights Out Ted Koppel A bit of investigative journalism about the potential effects of cyber war on the American electric grid
