Cybercrime: The Movie

I was invited to the cinema yesterday. Unfortunately, (or fortunately for the benefit of my girlfriend) the invite wasn’t romantically motivated, actually it was about as far as you can get from popcorn and cuddling on the back row.

I was invited to the cinema yesterday. Unfortunately, (or fortunately for the benefit of my girlfriend) the invite wasn’t romantically motivated, actually it was about as far as you can get from popcorn and cuddling on the back row. Fortify, an enterprise security company has backed a documentary called: The New Face of Cybercrime - and it was being screened in London yesterday.

I couldn’t make it along in the end but apparently the film was produced by Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Frederic Golding (a quick search on Google fails to reveal what he was nominated for?).

Some of the talking heads interviewed for the film include:

Matthew Devost, CEO, The Terrorism Research Center James Routh, CISO, The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation Lt. Col. Jeff Salyards, USAF, Director, Defense Computer Forensics Laboratory Mike Ullman, Chairman and CEO, JC Penney Company, Inc.

They’ve hosted a clip on YouTube for anyone who’s looking for a more accurate depiction of the threat of cybercrime than Hollywood’s recent efforts such as Die Hard 4.0 and Harrison Ford’s Firewall - which shouldn't be hard.
