Ben Makuch--Cyberwar host and VICE News national security reporter--will make sense of the modern, geopolitical cyberwarfare landscape dominating the headlines. From exclusive insights into the DNC hack, to insights into hacktivists like PhineasFisher and the Anonymous collective, Makuch will talk extensively about his experiences reporting from the front lines of the global cyberwar and present a clip from the new season of his show followed by a question and answer session.

Ben Makuch

Ben Makuch is an award winning national security reporter with VICE News. Previously with the Canadian Press’s Parliamentary Bureau, Makuch was in contact with several homegrown Islamic State militants from Canada. That reporting caught the attention of federal counterterrorism investigators who are trying to force Makuch to hand over all source materials connected to Farah Mohamed Shirdon, an alleged ISIS fighter from Calgary. Makuch refused and is now fighting the production order in court. He faces possible jail time if he loses.

Makuch is currently the correspondent for Cyberwar on the VICELAND network, an investigative documentary series examining the covert world of signals intelligence and hackers.
