We invite you to attend a special screening of ThinkNation's hacking documentary, A Hackers Story.
The screening will be followed by an audience Q&A participation with Jake Davis (Ex-Anonymous and LulzSec) and Richard Jones (National Cyber Crime Unit).
Partly filmed here in Brighton, "A Hackers Story" is a 20 min documentary exploring how an informal or "casual" group of people - who has a vision but no contract - assemble and act on it to hack global organisations. What triggers them to carry out a hack or share confidential intel? In other words, why do hackers work, and what role could or should they play in our world? What risks do they pose to our security - are they an asset or a threat? How can young people be better informed on the realities of hacking and the wider implications?
This short documentary includes interviews with:
Jake Davis: Previously a member of hacker collective Anonymous, he later formed LulzSec, where he and his collaborative targeted sites such as The Sun, X-Factor, Sony, and the CIA.
Professor Ruth Blakeley: Co-director of The Rendition Project which provides the most comprehensive analysis to date of the CIA’s Rendition, Detention and Interrogation programme.
Richard Jones: Manager of the Prevent operational team at the National Cyber Crime Unit (NCCU), in the UK's National Crime Agency. He and his team is focus on stopping people from becoming involved in cyber crime, or from re-offending.
