After a discussing the latest “State of Denial” Address from President Obama and the way the President manipulates information, Chuck Woolery and Mark Young invite Marc Goodman to this episode of Blunt Force Truth.
Goodman is a global security advisor and futurist who focuses on how technology makes us vulnerable as a nation, in business and our daily lives. Goodman talks about the ways we depend on technology, with our information available to be stolen and infrastructure to be infiltrated.
Chuck, Marc and Mark also delve into the advancements made in medicine and human health, discussing both the incredible benefits as well as the risks involved when that technology is democratized.
The point of his exploration is to be more prepared for potential attacks, both by taking precautions with your own technology and urging your politicians to pay better attention to cyber threats that might affect national security.
Goodman is a prolific writer, with articles appearing in multiple high profile magazines, including Time, The Atlantic Magazine, and Wired Magazine. His latest book is Future Crimes: Everything is Connected, Everyone is Vulnerable and What We Can Do About It.
