About

An awaGeoff_White_portraitrd-winning television news journalist, Geoff White’s exclusives have covered everything from fraud in the internet dating industry to the shadowy world of Russian cybercrime gangs.

He works mainly for Channel 4 News, with a focus on tech security, personal data, privacy and e-crime.

His reports aim to create real-world change, and have been followed by arrests, regulatory investigations and legislative action.

He is also the co-creator of The Secret Life of Your Mobile Phone, a live, interactive phone hacking stage performance which shows how the global technology industry is harvesting the data leaking from your handset.

For Channel 4 News he created the Data Baby project, a unique experiment which used a fictional online identity to expose how our personal data is being used – and abused – online.

An accomplished public speaker, he has also spoken on panels and chaired debates at venues ranging from London’s Chatham House think-tank to the Latitude music festival.
