Creators of Norton range provide advice to new show from creators of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
IT experts woking on Symantec's Norton branded security software have acted as consultants for a new movie called Cybergeddon.
The film, which will be shown online on Yahoo from 24 September, is described as a cybercrime thriller from the brain of Anthony E. Zuiker, creator of the popular television series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
Viewers will watch FBI agents Chloe Jocelyn (Missy Peregrym) and Frank Parker (Manny Montana) aided by jailed master hacker Chase ‘Rabbit' Rosen (Kick Gurry) investigate a worldwide cybercrime ring led by Gustave Dobreff (Olivier Martinez).
To ensure accuracy and authenticity, security company Symantec which produces the Norton security software became a co-sponsor of the series and gave the scriptwriter's real-life insights and examples of what happens in the dark side of the internet; including the code for a real virus and how these crimes are investigated and prosecuted.
A statement from the company said that as well as entertaining people the show will be educational as well: "This movie entertains and educates people about cybercrime and how today's constantly connected technologies can make you vulnerable to digital dangers.
"Never before has computer crime been brought to life in such a visually compelling and dramatic fashion for audiences around the world."
