  1. Upprepningar som tål att upprepas
    Tomas Gilså, 12 februari 2014

    Schneier har av The Register kallats det närmaste IT-säkerhetsbranschen har en rock-stjärna. För att bygga vidare på den metaforen kan denna bok beskrivas som en samlingsskiva på CD eller LP där diverse alternativa versioner av hits och låter från b-sidan av singlar samlas. Det vill säga upprepningar. Fast i en bransch som bevisligen inte lyssnar på sina egna erfarenheter så tål dessa budskap att upprepas.
