Due to a family emergency, Marc Goodman has had to cancel his Town Hall appearance. Current ticket holders will be automatically refunded. Thank you for your understanding. The large scale–and embarrassing–Sony hack of last November has raised a lot of questions about internet security, corporate vulnerability, and harsher punishments for perpetrators, but according to cybersecurity expert Marc Goodman, these attacks aren’t limited to large corporations. Future Crimes, called “an alarming view of the burgeoning dark side of the internet,” (Kirkus Review) explains how all of us are susceptible to criminal activity online. From basic identity theft and stalking via GPS on smartphones, to spying on families through baby monitors and even taking control of someone’s pacemaker, our increasingly technology-dependent world is rife with vulnerabilities. A longtime cybercrime consultant for INTERPOL and others, Goodman (founder of the organization Future Crimes) will explore some of the unexpected ways technology can be controlled by others, and offer concrete steps society can take to guard itself from attack.
