From Dark Reading:
I Am The Cavalry co-founder Josh Corman provided expertise on the hacktivist organization, Anonymous, for a Dark Reading article regarding the group’s recent actions.
Anonymous remains popular with hacktivists because it can complement “street” action such as the Black Lives Matter protests, says Josh Corman, who was the director of security intelligence at Akamai during Anonymous’ peak and co-author of “Building a Better Anonymous.”
“Most of the core Anonymous members moved on to different tactics. They saw how prone they were to manipulation, and it was wildly unpleasant for them toward the end,” he says. But he adds that despite being shunted into the shadows for most of the past five years, Anonymous is still the “most readily available face of protest.”
“I think we will have Anonymous around in some form forever,” he says.
