Hackers Vs. Governments

Recently, I have come across a short documentary that examines the threats and motives behind “hacktivism.” The documentary is just under 20 minutes long and packed with information, which will make you question which side of the battle are you actually on.

Are you on the side of NSA, CIA, FBI? Willing to sacrifice your privacy for security? Or, are you in support of the hacktivist movement, Edward Snowden, and the Anonymous group? People who believe that by hacking into the government’s secret databases and releasing top secret information is the way to go.

The film, presenting both camps of this battle, was created by Jeremy Martin, a Sr. Penetration Tester at Information Warfare Center and you can find the original post with the video here.
