Topic: CSI:Cyber – What did they get wrong and right?
In 2015, CBS launched the 4th spin-off of the original CSI TV show called CSI:Cyber. The show focused on an FBI unit that worked to solve various cyber-crimes such as theft, hacking, extortion and even murder. The series lasted only two seasons and quickly became a running joke among the cyber security community due to outlandish, impossible, and unrealistic scenarios. However, the show got some things right which we will talk about and explore things that just didn’t quite hit the mark in an episode from season 2.
