andlt;Pandgt;Digital communications are the lifeblood of modern society. We andquot;meet upandquot; online, tweet our reactions millions of times a day, connect through social networking rather than in person. Large portions of business and commerce have moved to the Web, and much of our critical infrastructure, including the electric power grid, is controlled online. This reliance on information systems leaves us highly exposed and vulnerable to cyberattack. Despite this, U.S. law enforcement and national security policy remain firmly focused on wiretapping and surveillance. But, as cybersecurity expert Susan Landau argues in andlt;Iandgt;Surveillance or Security?andlt;/Iandgt;, the old surveillance paradigms do not easily fit the new technologies.
