I cover security and privacy for Forbes. I’ve been breaking news and writing features on these topics for major publications since 2010. As a freelancer, I worked for The Guardian, Vice Motherboard, Wired and BBC.com, amongst many others. I was named BT Security Journalist of the year in 2012 and 2013 for a range of exclusive articles, and in 2014 was handed Best News Story for a feature on US government harassment of security professionals. I like to hear from hackers who are breaking things for either fun or profit and researchers who've uncovered nasty things on the web. You can email me at TBrewster@forbes.com, or tbthomasbrewster@gmail.com. If you are worried about prying eyes, here's my PGP fingerprint for the Gmail address: 19A0 3F37 B3B7 4C1E C1D1 9AA4 5E37 654C 1660 B817

I cover crime, privacy and security in digital and physical forms.
