And while we're handing out movie recommendations, try for a 1974  
Francis Ford Coppola movie called "The Conversation".  Easily the  
best fictional movie I've ever seen about real-world communications  

Phil Alden Robinson's 1992 movie "Sneakers" is also appropriate here,  
although "Sneakers" is a little inferior to "The Conversation".

Both those movies are absolutely brilliant when it comes to the  
subject of communications security.
