Please join the CISO Series community on Friday, January 8th, 2021 for “Hacking Cyber Media: An hour of critical thinking about how media companies are reporting on cyber news”


Joining David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • What are the responsibilities of media companies when it comes to reporting cybersecurity stories? 
  • How does that differ between mainstream media and industry specific media?
  • What are the media companies not reporting that they should be reporting?
  • What part of your cyber education is rooted in consuming industry media? What can be done to better improve it?
  • What are the best avenues to receive that information?

Got feedback? Join the conversation on LinkedIn.

It all starts at 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern. At the end of the hour [11 AM Pacific/2 PM Eastern] we’ll switch gears into a series of impromptu 1-on-1 five-minute meetings where everyone will be randomly paired. Nothing to prepare, we’ll do the matching.


  • Best bad ideas get first responses in “Department of YES”.
  • Other bad ideas featured in “What’s Worse?!” game.
  • The BEST bad idea wins an award and a $25 Amazon gift card.
