Bruce Schneier: Click Here to Kill Everybody: Security and Survival in a Hyper-Connected World

Bruce Schneier is a security expert who has written extensively about cybersecurity. Click here to kill everybody is a great introduction into the topic of cybersecurity for anybody who is more interested in the political than the technical side or looks for a well-written overview. Even though the title is almost clickbait by itself, the book succeeds in outlining some of the more pressing security issues in the cyberworld today. Schneier describes why the Internet of Things is so vulnerable, why Botnets are still dangerous and why better regulation of the internet would make it much safer.
