Cyber security at the movies


To rule the galaxy you need great cyber security

Want to learn about computer security? Then go to the movies! Science Fiction especially needs the bad guys to make mistakes, and security mistakes usually make for a good plot. It's not always the bad guys who mess up though. It seems everyone is really bad at security when computers are involved. A foundation of security is identifying hazards - the things that could go wrong and how. Only then can you set up defences to guard against your weaknesses. So get watching and learning. Here are some films to get you started. They contain spoilers though so if you haven't seen the films already you might want to before you read on.
