Craig Newmark on why he’s funding cybersecurity projects

Founded in 1995, Craigslist helped shape the modern web as we know it today, reshaping online economies and how people bought and sold goods. Today, its founder Craig Newmark is perhaps better known for his philanthropy than the classifieds site he founded. Newmark’s philanthropy spans issues of cybersecurity, technology and journalism, and he joins Safe Mode to discuss the evolution of the modern internet and why he’s putting his fortune to work on issues of cybersecurity. CyberScoop reporter Derek B. Johnson and FedScoop reporter Rebecca Heilweil also join the show to discuss their recent reporting on security measures for the federal government’s myriad social media accounts.
