DavidGilbert99 writes: Snowden has changed the face of cyber-security according to one of the most renowned experts in global cyber-security. As well as opening the public's eyes to what our government's are doing, Jarno Limnell says Snowden has weakened the security situation in Western countries, accelerated the global cyber-arms race, helped groups like Al Quaida avoid detection and even sent the Kremlin back to the days of the typewriter. However, ultimately, Limnell says Snowden's stated goal of not wanting any secrets will fail, as governments want to double down on security and will keep the most important things truly secret.

it wasn't this one."
