Fresh from her stint as a cyber war correspondent, Jody has been on the front lines of many of the cyber security events of the past decade. The helicopter she was flying in was under attack by hackers as they manipulated the controls of the aircraft thus disabling the air conditioning causing discomfort to all on board. She survived this scary encounter to serve as a CSEN newsdesk anchor, commentator, and reporter.
Sara is our CSEN lifestyle correspondent, field reporter and guest/weekend anchor. Her previous work as a sideline reporter for Australian rules cyber security events has drawn rave reviews and gives Sara a global perspective regarding cyber security. Sarah will be hosting CSEN’s new daytime talk show (under development) in the spring of 2021.
Up and coming field reporter Chris Duncan Jr. brings CSEN to the forefront of cyber security world events. His ability to sniff out stories and his knack for being first on the scene has built his reputation in the cyber world resulting in numerous exclusive interviews with underground hacking organizations. Junior was the first to report on “the dude” virus ransomware hoax and is credited for naming the “wassup?” virus in 2018.
Senior correspondent Chris Duncan Sr. is old enough to remember a time without cyber security threats. Chris Sr. still carries a pocket size abacus to help him with complex calculations and provides a tenured perspective to CSEN. His ability to break down complicated cyber issues into the layman’s terms proves to be highly valuable to CSEN viewers despite his ongoing reference to every cyber issue as a “bug”. To further understand Senior’s involvement with CSEN, realize that he owns the CSEN studio property from which we broadcast.
