To be clear, I enjoyed the book. If you're interested in InfoSec, and you're an avid reader, it's definitely worth your time, but if you're looking for a great primer in the vein of most of other works by Schneier, then you should probably look elsewhere, because it simply isn't "relevant enough" to be a modern reference.
"Secrets and Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World" is the perfect book to hand to new bosses or new employees coming in the door who have not been exposed to cyber security in their past lives. It is also the perfect book for seasoned security practitioners who want an overview of the key issues facing our community today. Schneier wrote it more than a decade ago, but its ideas still resonate. He talks about the idea that “security is a process, not a product.” With that one line, Schneier captures the essence of what our cyber security community should be about. He explains that even though we have advanced technology designed to specifically find cyber break-ins, people are the still the weakest link. He describes how cyber risk is not a special category. It is just another risk to the business. He highlights the ludicrous idea that software vendors have no liability or selling buggy code, and he was one of the first thought leaders to characterize the adversary as something more than just a hacker. He makes the case for things that the cyber security community still needs in order to make the Internet more secure, things like strengthening confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA); improving Internet privacy and Internet anonymity; and challenging the idea that security practitioners must make the Sophie’s Choice between better security or more privacy in terms of government surveillance. Finally, he anticipates the need for a Bitcoin-like capability long before Bitcoin became popular. The content within Secrets and Lies is a good introduction to the cyber security community, and Schneier tells the story well. Because of that, Secrets and Lies is candidate for the cyber security canon, and you should have read it by now.
The author is very specific about the security domains without being too technical but instead focusing on the "philosophy" behind each caveat. In that regards he shows the many way crackers can harm our security and how far we have advanced in combating them. He has a sort of pessimistic view regarding this because as he claims the bad guys are already ahead of governments and other organizations because of their unwillingness to think of security as a process but rather as a product to be installed without proper metrics measurement and capacity planning.
That being said, there are some nits I have to pick. The material is very ad hoc, backed up by mainly by personal (though extensive) experience and casual reading. A useful knowledge base, but limited as a source of primary information.
This is aggravated by Schneier's use of non-technical examples and analogies in many of his arguments. The arguments themselves are very strong, but when he cites this historical example or that financial practice, he often gets his facts wrong. I don't suppose this has a big effect on his credibility, but it must have some.
It's also a little disappointing that Schneier didn't bother to get into the general history of the Engima/Ultra business -- a prime example of his basic theme, that the smallest failure of the security process is vulnerable to machines with infinite patience.
Finally, I'm very, very disappointed that Scheier fails to challenge -- and sometimes even supports -- the social conservative attitude towards hacking and reverse engineering. He points out the futility of trying to encrypt DVDs -- but barely touches on the DMCA. He speaks of general software hacking as a basically benign activity -- but he strongly supports criminal punishment even for the most non-invasive electronic "trespass". This is a point of view utterly at odds with his ideas of security considered in a complete social context.
