Publisher's Summary

The New York Times Best Seller
Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flipside. Criminals are often the earliest and most innovative adopters of technology, and modern times have led to modern crimes.
Today's criminals are stealing identities, draining online bank accounts, and wiping out computer servers. It's disturbingly easy to activate baby-cam monitors to spy on families, pacemakers can be hacked to deliver lethal jolts, and thieves are analyzing your social media in order to determine the best time for a home invasion.
Meanwhile 3-D printers produce AK-47s, terrorists can download the recipe for the Ebola virus, and drug cartels are building drones. This is just the beginning of the tsunami of technological threats coming our way. In Future Crimes Marc Goodman rips open his database of hundreds of real cases to give us front-row access to these impending perils.
Reading like a sci-fi thriller but based in startling fact, Goodman raises tough questions about the expanding role of technology in our lives. Future Crimes is a call to action for better security measures worldwide but, most importantly, will empower readers to protect themselves against these looming technological threats - before it's too late.

Thought provoking

This book has changed how I think about the data I produce and the head in the sand naivety with which I have used free apps, websites, etc in the past. I will never submit any personal data on the Internet again.. Oh wait..

Repetitive and shallow

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listened to about half and got bored. I have read\listened to countless other technology\ cyber crime titles and this one to me was repetitive and didnt grab me. I was dissapointed.

What could Marc Goodman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Anecdotes and more technical depth into examples and how the crims did what they did. The tricks they used

Humanity is doomed. Business and Government's inability to put security ahead of profit will dig our collective grave. As an ex IT professional, this book confirms all I have thought for years, and more. Everyone on the planet needs to read this. Quickly.
