Why you should book Geoff White for your next event

  • His first book, Crime Dot Com, took readers inside the murky world of the digital underground, uncovering cybercrime’s emergence as today’s global threat.
  • As the technology correspondent for Channel 4 News, one of the UK’s leading daily news programmes, Geoff won multiple awards for his work on the Snowden leaks, the hacking of Britain’s largest ISP TalkTalk and his exposés of fraud in the internet dating industry.
  • He was the creator of the programme’s Data Baby project, a unique experiment which used a fictional online persona to expose how personal data is used – and abused – online.

In a career spanning 20 years Geoff White has covered election hacking, money laundering, the personal data trade and the emergence of cybercrime as one of the primal threats to modern society.

His new book, The Lazarus Heist – From Hollywood to High Finance: Inside North Korea’s Global Cyber War was published by Penguin Random House on 9 June 2022, and is available to pre-order now on Amazon, Waterstones, and Bookshop.org. It sprang from the hit 10-part BBC podcast series of the same name, which Geoff co-hosted and which immediately ranked number one in the UK Apple chart and within the top 7 in the US. Season 2 of the podcast will be out in late 2022.

An experienced public speaker, he has given keynote talks at some of the UK’s largest conferences, in addition to hosting events and chairing panels at venues ranging from London’s Chatham House think-tank to the Latitude music festival.

Geoff’s first book, Crime Dot Com: From Viruses to Vote Rigging, How Hacking Went Global, was published in August 2020 by Reaktion Books and was described as “a fascinating, often gripping read”. He has written and presented two major podcast series for Audible. The Dark Web exposed the shadow internet created by the US military and now home to hackers, crooks and freedom fighters. It has been a top ten hit on the platform since its launch in 2017. Artificial Intelligence: Friend or Foe? revealed the origins of AI, and shows how the technology is seeping into everyday life.

Geoff’s own podcast series Cybercrime Investigations takes listeners inside the world of an investigative journalist, detailing the twists and turns as the story unfolds.

Cyber crime

Geoff White is one of the world’s leading journalists on cybercrime, having covered it for BBC News, Channel 4 News, Sky News and published two books on the subject.

He uses real-world examples and his own investigations to bring home the impact of today’s global hacking industry, and to give insight into how organisations and individuals can protect themselves

Financial crime

Geoff White’s next book for Penguin will explore how the industry of money laundering is being impacted by technology, revealing the worldwide nexus of digital enablers helping criminal gangs to spirit away billions.

His stories illuminate how financial crime investigators, fraud and compliance teams can understand and manage the emerging risk from this new alliance of traditional criminals, hi-tech crooks and financially- savvy accomplices.

Crypto crime

Through his work on North Korean cybercrime Geoff White has gained considerable insight into the tools and tactics used to target the burgeoning crypto industry, and how it is used to move, launder and hide criminal proceeds.

His coverage of the subject shows how those on the cutting edge of this new financial world are under threat from an increasingly adept set of crypto-crooks, and how they can manage this risk effectively.
