Going to see “The New Face of CyberCrime”

Published by at 9:59 am under Hacking

I’m going to see a movie put on by Fortify called “The New Face of CyberCrime” in San Francisco this afternoon.  It’s a documentary on hackers and security pro’s and what they do.  I’m taking my mobile blogging, podcasting and video blogging setup, which includes the Mac Book Pro, the Zoom H4 and the Sanyo Xacti C6.  Take those three and add in the MotoQ, and I can produce content almost anywhere.  I’ll take a few minutes to write a review before BaySec tonight and maybe get an interview with one or two of the folks there.  I hear Marcus Ranum and Gary McGraw might be at the screening.

Given that documentaries take a long time to shoot and edit, I have to wonder how recent the information it contains can be.  Will we be hearing about hacking trends that have already burnt themselves out or will we be hearing someone’s best guess as to what we’ll be seeing in the next year?   I know Winn Schwartau’s daughter was shooting a video at Defcon last year, I wonder if the two movies are related.

    Not on IMDB, but the trailer is on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5zxOLZ5jXM)

    Created by Academy award nominated director Fredric Golding and presented by Fortify Software (www.fortify.com), The New Face of CyberCrime gives a face to the criminals’ intent on hacking into your systems today. Who are they? How do they think? What makes them successful? You’ll also hear candid interviews with many industry leaders and executives of large organizations taking steps against these attacks. Understand how they think about these threats and what they are doing about them throughout their companies.
