Northport, N.Y. – Jan. 15, 2019

Cybercrime Magazine is excited about the opening of our new Cybercrime Studios in historic Northport, N.Y. The small seaside village has been home to writer Jack Kerouac — author of the famous novel “On The Road” — and the backdrop for big-screen motion pictures, indie films, and TV shows.

Our team of hosts, writers, editors, videographers, and content specialists film podcast video interviews on the second floor of the Brush Building on Main Street — built in 1925 and renovated in 2017 — which is steps away from Northport Harbor.


“If you know cybersecurity, you have a guaranteed job. For life.” – Robert Herjavec, Shark on ABC TV’s Shark Tank / Founder and CEO of Herjavec Group  Read the story

We travelled to Morristown, N.J. to film our Chief Media Commentator, Scott Schober, in a 30-minute TV-style interview with Robert. Afterwards, we asked him about putting on the headphones and going one-on-one radio-style with our newly minted Podcast Host Georgia Reid. The impromptu 7-minute podcast was an instant hit and we’ve been filming them ever since.

It was an honor and privilege to film this interview with him on-location at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) Manhattan campus.
