Bloomberg seeks a cybersecurity editor
Bloomberg News is one of the biggest and most influential news organizations in the world. Our award-winning Global Cybersecurity Team covers data breaches and cyberattacks that exploit weaknesses at companies, organizations, government agencies and digital platforms, as well as the people, groups and nation-states responsible for them. We explore the why behind incursions, seeking to explain motivations of attackers, how victims respond and the weaknesses that leave all of us vulnerable. Our team also covers digital disinformation and the profound, deepening privacy risks posed by our digitized economy.
