"The single most important step in engineering is to get the problem statement right. This is as true in social engineering as it is in information systems engineering. Wes Kussmaul's book is an attempt to do just that: to get the problem statement right, and to do so where social and information systems engineering meet, which is to say security. He deserves a gold star for even trying."

"Wes Kussmaul brought the internet into our homes and businesses when he founded Delphi. [He shows us] ...today, the right we have to use our home and our business premises as we see fit, as long as we don t bother others in doing so, gets lost when you spend 20 minutes a day getting rid of spam, and even more time in fear of contracting a virus.

After the Internet came the World Wide Web, a domain that has transformed the way we live and do business. Everything from research to commerce has been affected. The ability to access information quickly, to buy and sell efficiently, and to be “anywhere” without restriction or inhibition has fired the imagination of millions of users. But the Web's freedom came at a price: malware, fraud, predation, phishing attacks, theft. Ten years ago we were told that things would steadily get better, but that assessment was way off the mark. Individuals, associations, and businesses are increasingly at the mercy of dystopic forces.
