Virtual Event via Zoom
Nicole Perlroth covers cyber security and digital espionage for The New York Times. She has covered Russian hacks of nuclear plants, airports, and elections; North Korea’s cyber attacks against movie studios, banks and hospitals; Iran’s attacks on oil companies, banks and the Trump campaign and hundreds of Chinese cyber attacks, including a months-long hack of The Times, which earned her several awards. Her recently published first book, “This Is How They Tell Me The World Ends,” tells the thrilling untold story of the cyber weapons market – the most secretive, invisible, government-backed market on earth – and a terrifying first look at a new kind of global warfare. The book, and several of her Times articles, have been optioned for both film and television.
Perlroth is a guest lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a graduate of Princeton University and Stanford University. She lives with her family in the Bay Area, but increasingly prefers life off the grid in their cabin.
