Investigating the Hacktivists of Anonymous: Journalist Parmy Olsen on the Challenges of Investigating a Network Cloaked in Secrecy
Parmy Olsen, Journalist, Forbes
Peter Van Zandt Lane, Composer and Lecturer in the Department of Music
6:00pm, Zinner Forum, Heller School for Social Policy
Ever wonder who is behind the hacktivists known as Anonymous? Are they heroes or villains? What is their agenda, really? In a lecture at Brandeis, Forbes journalist Parmy Olson, author of “We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of LulzSec, Anonymous, and the Global Cyber Insurgency,” will speak about the challenges and methods she used to investigate and report on the hidden and secret activities of Anonymous, notorious in some circles and acclaimed in others for their cyber attacks against the websites of major financial corporations, governments, law enforcement, purveyors of child pornography, and others.
Co-sponsored by the Schuster School for Investigative Journalism, the Department of Music, and the Department of Politics. This event is free and open to the public. More information about this event is available on the Schuster School website.
