Bruce Schneier is an American security researcher, author and policy advisor. He frequently appears in the media and publishes a popular blog and online newsletter (Crypto-Gram) providing outspoken commentary on security topics including computer security, cryptography, counterterrorism and the concept of security theater - security procedures that have no discernible benefit but are pursued in order to make people believe that they are more secure. Schneier states that many airport security and counterterrorism measures fall into this category. Schneier has authored a number of books on security - Applied Cryptography, Beyond Fear, Secrets and Lies, and Schneier on Security - and currently works as the Chief Security Technology Officer at BT.
