Casting “Hacker:Hunter,” a film. Synopsis: ‘Hacker:Hunter’ combines journalistic investigation and character-driven storytelling to give audiences a front-row seat on the rapidly developing world of high-level trans-national cyber-crime. We tell our stories from the point of view of cyber-security specialists, or ‘Hunters’; the international cohort of young men and women who could have chosen a life of crime, but instead dedicate their skills to tracking and defeating hackers, scammers and online spies. Casting for episode two:
“Black Hat, White Hat:” This episode tells the story of the WannaCry ransomware attack and Marcus Hutchins, the young British security specialist who shot to fame by finding the WannaCry “Killswitch”. But as Hutchins was fêted at a hacker conference in Las Vegas, FBI agents arrested him for his pervious incarnation as a bank-robbing hacker. In retelling Hutchins’ remarkable rise and fall, we explore the moral boundaries of hacking vs. hunting, and how these grey zones are negotiated by those we rely on to keep us safe online. How clear are the divisions between good and bad online? Concurrently, we look into the affects the WannaCry attack had on organisations worldwide, including the NHS. Could it have been prevented and what lessons were learned?
