Founder NiceKids.Net, a cyber-ethics web site for kids, families and teachers. He is the author of "Internet and Computer Ethics for Kids (and Parents and Teachers Without a Clue)" (2001/2002). This hit book has received rave reviews and has also been called "The best security book ever written."(Dr. Fred Cohen, all.net) It is being adopted by schools and corporations across the country.
· In 2002, he was honored as a "Power Thinker" and named one of the 50 most powerful people in networking by Network World.
· Founder of the influential InfowarCon conference, which has established itself as the premier international event on information warfare and Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Infowar. He is one of the country's leading experts on information security, infrastructure protection and electronic privacy.
· Often referred to as "the civilian architect of information warfare," he coined the term "Electronic Pearl Harbor" and was the Project Lead of the Manhattan Cyber Project Information Warfare and Electronic Civil Defense Team.
Mr. Schwartau's latest book (2002) "Pearl Harbor Dot Com" is a compelling fictional story about a Cyberterrorist attack on the United States. It underscores the need for cooperation and security awareness among all sectors of the United States, and indeed the world. It is based upon his prophetic 1991 novel, "Terminal Compromise".
Schwartau's hit "Cybershock" (2000, 2001) is a non-technical look at hackers, hacking and how important security is to families, companies and nations. It is meant for the average computer user or for organizations to help make their staffs aware of security concerns in the workplace. The principles he developed in "Time Based Security," (1999, 2001) have redefined how security is measured, and employs means to quantify network protection, detection and reaction processes.
His first non-fiction book, "Information Warfare: Chaos on the Electronic Superhighway (1994, 1996, 1997) brought the concepts of Infowar and Cyberterrorism out into the open. He called for the creation of a National Information Policy, a Constitution in Cyberspace and an Electronic Bill of Rights. The sequels, "Information Warfare: Cyberterrorism, Second Edition," were released in 1997/1998.
