Over the years a lot has been written about hackers and their motivations, but what about the people responsible for defending private and public enterprises? The Defenders is the first film made that shifts the focus away from the hacker to the security professionals who protect us 24/7 -- it reveals the curiosity and discipline behind their critical and noble work. The Defenders takes a behind-the-scenes look at four famous cyber attacks and spotlights the incredible people tasked with keeping our institutions safe.

The Defenders premiere schedule includes:

May 8, Boston
May 10, New York
May 16, Chicago
May 17, San Francisco

The Defenders features leading authorities in cybersecurity including:

  • Jeanette Manfra: Chief Cybersecurity Official, Department of Homeland Security

“Security isn’t something you can learn from a book, instead it’s about applying a different mindset where you eat, breathe and sleep like hackers to better know their tactics, techniques and procedures,” said Lior Div, CEO and cofounder, Cybereason. “We supported the development of The Defenders to amplify the conversation around cybersecurity and to celebrate the industry’s unsung heroes.”
