En una entrevista a Bruce Schneier le hicieron una pregunta cuya respuesta me pareció muy interesante.
Les dejo el texto y la liga por si desean leer el documento completo:
As an individual, what security threats scare you the most?
My primary concerns are threats from the powerful. I'm not worried
about criminals, even organised crime. Or terrorists, even organised
terrorists. Those groups have always existed, always will, and they'll
always operate on the fringes of society.
Societal pressures have done a
good job of keeping them that way. It's much more dangerous when those
in power use that power to subvert trust. Specifically, I am thinking of
governments and corporations.
Let me give you a few examples. The global financial crisis was not a
result of criminals, it was perpetrated by legitimate financial
institutions pursuing their own self-interest.
The major threats against
our privacy are not from criminals, they're from corporations trying to
more accurately target advertising.
The most significant threat to the
freedom of the Internet is from large entertainment companies, in their
misguided attempt to stop piracy. And the cyberwar rhetoric is likely to
cause more damage to the Internet than criminals could ever dream of.
