Disgruntled employees. Terrorists. Countries or people that just hate each other. We all know about increasing frequency of attacks, but the majority of malicious actors are driven by a clear profit motive. Where are the damaging but not financially-motivated attacks, the folks that just want to mess things up? Think of it like Drake’s famous equation on the probability of extraterrestrial life: a small percent with the means and a small percent with the motive still means a non-zero probability of overlap. If a criminal gang can take down a organization for money, why haven’t more people done it for petty vengeance, politics, or just the lulz? We tackle these weighty questions at the intersection of geopolitics, public safety and infosec in the format with the most gravitas: a game show. Our panel of experts will try to win points, predict the future, and avoid overly obvious innuendo.
