Getting it right

Several pros told me that the best depiction of infosec on TV can be found on Mr. Robot. Bromium's Kotov, who admits that "throughout the history of cinema and television, every profession has been butchered," calls the USA Network show "the only exception" to unrealistic depictions of his own field.

Greg Foss, security operations lead, Office of the CISO at LogRhythm, calls it "by far the most accurate depicting of real-world hacking I’ve seen. They nailed the personas. Turns out Michael Bazell, the show's tech adviser, spent 18 years as a government computer crime investigator, assigned most of his time to the FBI's cybercrimes taskforce."
