This fascinating and useful book by noted expert Peter Neumann contains accounts of mishaps, failures, and other disasters attributed to computers. Computer-based systems are everywhere in our lives, from the smallest radio components to the largest aerospace installations; and while computers can make our lives easier, they can also fail, and the people using them can make errors-causing inconvenience or even catastrophe. Neumann characterizes different kinds of computer-related risks, discusses risk causes and effects, and considers their implications. He also suggests ways to minimize such risks in the future. Featured are sections on reliability and safety problems, security vulnerabilities, privacy, and global systems.

About Peter Neumann Peter G. Neumann (Principal Scientist in the Computer Science Laboratory of SRI International) runs the popular and provocative on-line Internet newsgroup, The Risks Forum, which he started in 1985. He also writes the widely read "Inside Risks" column in the Communications of the ACM. Running RISKS is a sideline to his research and development interests, which include computer hardware and software, systems, networks, and communications, as well as security, reliability, and safety--and how to attain them. He is a Fellow of both the ACM and the IEEE. He is often the first person called when computer disasters occur. 020155805XAB04062001
