Geoff White is an author, speaker, investigative journalist, and podcast creator. He has worked for the BBC, Audible, Penguin, Sky News, and The Sunday Times. In a career spanning twenty years he has covered everything from billion-dollar cyber heists to global money laundering rings and crypto-gangsters.

Geoff’s first book was Crime Dot Com: From Viruses to Vote Rigging, How Hacking Went Global.  His second book, The Lazarus Heist – From Hollywood to High Finance: Inside North Korea’s Global Cyber War, sprang from the hit ten-part BBC podcast series of the same name, which Geoff co-hosted and immediately ranked number one in the UK Apple chart and within the top seven in the US.

Geoff has written and presented two major podcast series for Audible. The Dark Web exposed the shadow internet created by the US military and is now home to hackers, crooks, and freedom fighters. It has been a top ten hit on the platform since its launch Artificial Intelligence: Friend or Foe? revealed the origins of AI, and showed 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.

He was also the co-creator of The Secret Life of Your Mobile Phone, a live, interactive phone hacking stage performance which showed how the global technology industry is harvesting the data leaking from your handset. The show was a sell–out hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and has been performed at music festivals, political conferences and for corporate clients.

As the technology correspondent for Channel 4 News, 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.

An experienced public speaker, Geoff 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 to the Latitude music festival.
