Episode 09: Robert Schifreen


In this episode, I’m delighted to be joined by Robert Schifreen.

In 1985, Robert and the late Steve Gold were arrested by the newly-formed Scotland Yard Computer Crime Unit.  This led to the world’s first jury trial in connection with computer hacking.  Their ultimate acquittal led to the introduction of the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
Robert worked as a writer and editor on a number of well-known computer magazines for 25 years and then spent 14 years involved in IT projects at the University of Brighton.  In 2014 he founded SecuritySmart, which provides IT security awareness training to UK companies.
