Pressestimmen"Protecting What Matters gives readers an expert view of the tensions among security, liberty, and security in this post 9/11 world. Alternatively commending, condemning, and suggesting alternatives to current U.S. anti-terrorism policies and technology, the authors lay out the intricacies of the relationship among IT, freedom, security, ethics, and the law, in the context of fighting a new and unfamiliar enemy." --Natalie Kochmar, Privacy and American Business
