ThreatWire by Hak5 launched in 2012 as a quick weekly dose of news about security, privacy, and what is threatening the freedom of our Internet. A couple months later, Edward Snowden showed the whole world that the NSA was acting on secret court orders, collecting call records from nearly every telephone company in America.

In this post-Snowden era, we all want to know what kind of laws are being passed to inhibit our internet freedom and privacy. We are the targets of hacks to companies small and large. If you're like us, you want to know what threats are currently residing in the connected world.

ThreatWire went on hiatus as we did not have sponsorships. We passed on opportunities to have advertisers on the show. We wanted to continue this show but keep it completely independent, no ads, no networks. This is where Patreon comes into play.

We've brought ThreatWire back with the help of our Patrons! The threats to our freedom, and violations of our privacy and security didn't stop after 2013, and neither will we.

You can make this happen and be a part of this show, by becoming a Patron on Patreon.com/threatwire. You'll get early access to show topics, behind the scenes photos, access to an exclusive Audio-Only RSS feed, and more. Check out the perks to see what other bonuses you'll receive!

Your contribution is divided up like this! Over time, as we add monthly pledges, our goal is to increase revenue towards upgrades and labor. We would like to bring more people into the show, build a better set, increase engagement (with YOU!), and lots more, so each dollar helps us create a bigger and better show.



Thank you for supporting this show!

ThreatWire is a weekly short format video show by Shannon Morse. Your contributions help us keep the lights and internet on, and help us with upgrades to our graphics, cameras, lighting, and more! Patronage is on a per month basis. You have the ability to edit and set a maximum contribution per month via your Patreon settings. New to Patreon? Check out this link for more information!
