From Hacks to Headlines: How online crime turns into reputational damage

As the technology journalist for Channel 4 News, Geoff White has seen from the inside how the media treats (and mistreats) stories of corporate cybersecurity breaches.

Through his research on dark web communities he also has considerable insight into the motivations and methodologies of the criminals behind such attacks.

In this talk he examines the growing nexus of hackers, journalists, whistle-blowers and security researchers, and the reputational damage they can create.
