From one of the world's leading authorities on global security, Future Crimes takes readers deep into the digital underground to illuminate the alarming ways criminals, corporations and even countries are using new and emerging technologies against you, and how this makes everyone more vulnerable than ever thought possible
Marc Goodman has spent a career in law enforcement, including working as a street police officer, a senior adviser to Interpol, a futurist-in-residence with the FBI and training police forces in dozens of countries around the world, including the Metropolitan Police. As the founder of the Future Crimes Institute and the Chair for Policy, Law, and Ethics at Silicon Valley's Singularity University, he continues to investigate the intriguing and often terrifying intersection of science and security, uncovering nascent threats and combating the darker sides of technology.
