Hosts for the evening

Geoff White - Investigative Journalist

Election hacking, the dark web, multi-million dollar cyber heists – investigative journalist Geoff White has covered it all.

His work’s been featured by BBC News, Audible, Channel 4 News, The Sunday Times and more.

The twists and turns of his investigations into hacking have informed and entertained audiences from music festivals to political party conferences, and his live phone-hacking stage show was a sell-out hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
