Cybersecurity Beyond the Headlines: A Conversation With Journalist Nicole Perlroth

After the past year’s high-profile cybersecurity incidents, reporter and best-selling author Nicole Perlroth will join Professor Kristen Eichensehr, director of the Law School’s National Security Law Center, for a discussion of ransomware, espionage, the market for zero-day exploits and the role of the U.S. government in the cybersecurity ecosystem.

Perlroth spent a decade as the lead cybersecurity, digital espionage and sabotage reporter for The New York Times. Her investigation and ensuing outing of hacking divisions within China’s People’s Liberation Army helped compel the first U.S. hacking charges against members of the Chinese military, and earned her the Best in Business Award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. Her investigation with Azam Ahmed of the use of commercial spyware in Mexico was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. 

Her book “This Is How They Tell Me The World Ends,” about the global cyber arms race, won the 2021 McKinsey and Financial Times’ Business Book of the Year Award. The book and several of her Times articles have been optioned for television. She is a regular lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and was selected as the inaugural Journalist in Residence for the University of Texas Strauss Center’s Journalism and World Affairs program and the Jeanette Pontacq Investigative Journalism Fellow.
