Code and Dagger is creating must-reads for security, foreign policy and history nerds

patrons

Welcome to Code and Dagger, a boutique news outlet dedicated to reporting and analyzing security-related topics and general secret squirrel intrigue from the days Caesar (way back) to Stuxnet (today).

The site was founded in 2017 by Lee Ferran, a long-time security reporter, alumnus of the ABC News Investigative Unit and roaming journalist.

Your donations will keep Code and Dagger going, helping to cover everything from hosting fees to related online services to allowing me to eat food occasionally. In return, Code and Dagger will aim to provide content you'll want to see -- some breaking news, medium- and long-form investigative reports and the odd infographic or video explainer.

If you're so inclined, sign up to be a Patreon. Every little bit helps and big bits help a lot. Check out Code and Dagger here.
