Speaking of real events, Morey Haber, vice president of technology at BeyondTrust, is eagerly anticipating a film coming out this fall. "The Snowden movie should be an interesting event," he says.

It could be a truly eye-opening documentary and have similar effects on information and security technology that Blackfish had on the amusement park industry and animal activists. If the truth is blurred, and any stretch in information technology is used to augment the story, the movie will lose all credibility within the technical community."
