Zusatztext NEW YORK TIMES and WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER AMAZON'S BEST BUSINESS BOOK OF 2015 “In order to be modern, you have to read this book.” — Steve Martin “The hacks and heists detailed in  Future Crimes  are the stuff of thrillers, but unfortunately, the world of cybercrime is all too real. There could be no more sure-footed or knowledgeable companion than Marc Goodman on this guided tour of the underworld of the Internet. Everyone—and the business world especially—should heed his advice.” — Daniel H. Pink,  New York Times  bestselling author of  Drive  and  To Sell is Human “Addictive....Introduces readers to this brave new world of technology, where robbers have been replaced by hackers, and victims include nearly anyone on the Web...He presents his myriad hard-to-imagine cybercrime examples in the kind of matter-of-fact voice he probably perfected as an investigator. He clearly wants us never to look at our cellphones or Facebook pages in the same way again—and in this, Future Crimes succeeds marvelously.” — The  Washington Post “Excellent and timely...Mr. Goodman is no neo-Luddite. He thinks innovations could ultimately lead to self-healing computer networks that detect hackers and automatically make repairs to shut them out. He rightly urges the private and public sectors to work more closely together, ‘crowdsourcing’ ideas and know-how…The best time to start tackling future crimes is now.” —  The Economist “ Future Crimes is a risk compendium for the Information Age....Exhaustively researched....Fascinating....Thrilling to read” — San Francisco Chronicle   "In  Future Crimes , Goodman spills out story after story about how technology has been used for illegal ends...The author ends with a series of recommendations that, while ambitious, appear sensible and constructive...Goodman’s most promising idea is the creation of a “Manhattan Project” for cyber security...[ Future Crimes  is] a ride well worth taking if we are to prevent the worst of his predictions from taking shape." — Financial Times "A superb new book." —  The Boston Globe  "You couldn't ask for a better [cyber risk] overview than Future Crimes. " —  Harvard Business Review "Marc Goodman is a go-to guide for all who want a good scaring about the dark side of technology." —  New Scientist   "Utterly fascinating stuff...Goodman weds the joy of geeky technology with the tension of true crime. The future of crime prevention starts here." — NPR, San Francisco "A well-researched whirlwind tour of internet-based crime." —  Science Magazine "By the middle of the first chapter you’ll be afraid to turn on your e-reader or laptop, and you’ll be looking with deep suspicion at your smartphone...[Goodman's] style is breezy but his approach is relentless, as he leads you from the guts of the Target data breach to the security vulnerabilities in social media...Mr. Goodman argues convincingly that we are addressing exponential growth in risky technologies with thinking that is, at best, incremental. — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “OMG, this is a wakeup call. The outlaws are running faster than the architects. Use this book to shake up the companies you buy from, the device makers, telecom carriers, and governments at all levels. Demand that they pay attention to the realities of our new world as outlined within this thorough and deep book. Marc Goodman will startle you with the ingenuity of the bad guys. I'm a technological optimist. Now I am an eyes-wide-open optimist.” — Kevin...
