Joseph Menn - Cult of the Dead Cow: How the Original Hacking Supergroup Might Just Save the World — in conversation with John Lester — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, June 11, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Menn, an investigative reporter for Reuters, has covered hacking for nearly twenty years, winning three Best in Business awards and breaking major stories, including those concerning the Russian penetration of Hillary Clinton’s emails. His new book is a deeply reported account of the Cult of the Dead Cow (cDc), one of the oldest and most respected hacking groups around. Originator of the term “hacktivism,” the group has included activists, artists, and Beto O’Rourke. Given exclusive access to the group’s emails, chats, and other records, supplemented by interviews with intelligence agents and international security professionals, Menn details how the cDc has been working to make personal data safer, battling electoral misinformation, and trying to ensure that technology is a force for good, rather than for surveillance and oppression.
