IT Pro 20/20: Does cyber security's public image need a makeover?

Issue 18 of IT Pro 20/20 looks at recent efforts to retire the 'hacker' stereotype, and how the threat landscape has changed over the past 20 years

IT Pro 20/20 Issue 18: Does cyber security's public image need a makeover?

Welcome to issue 18 of IT Pro 20/20, distilling the most important themes of the previous month into an easy-to-read package.

In this cyber-security-themed issue, we highlight some of the most pressing challenges facing the industry. Our lead feature looks at the role of white hat hackers across the industry, the challenges they have faced in proving their value to companies, and whether media depictions of the traditional ‘hacker’ are creating unhelpful stereotypes.

We also look at the evolution of the security threat landscape from the 1990s until now, as well as consider whether the sudden appearance of social conscience among hackers may spell the end of the ransomware industry as we know it.

Also in this issue, you’ll find an overview of the most exciting features coming with Windows 11, as well as a look at the motivations fuelling the war against end-to-end encryption.
