Turton, William

Bloomberg cybersecurity and hackers reporter, Jul 2019 – present.

No IT education. Only playing video games (seriously). See The Most Important IT Credential: An IT Education in Principles of IT Incompetence. Turton also isn't old enough to have done the years of study required to get a good IT education and then the years of IT experience; see IT Hiring: Young Does Not Mean IT Expert.

From Doomsday II: The Massive Microsoft Email Data Breach Sequel:
Much of the American reporting on this sequel Microsoft email doomsday data breach — the media missed the first one — was based on a Bloomberg News article by William Turton and Jordan Robertson. Foolishly, the article quotes Alex Stamos as their cybersecurity expert. Alex Stamos was (Mar 2014 – Jun 2015) CISO of Yahoo during their two massive data breaches (late 2014) that compromised 500 million and 1 billion user accounts. Then Stamos was (Jun 2015 – Aug 2018) CISO of Facebook during its massive data breach (Jul 2017 – Aug 2018) that compromised 50 million user accounts. See Yahoo-Then-Facebook CISO Alex Stamos Allows Yet Another Massive Data Breach.

Jordan Robertson is the cybersecurity reporter for Bloomberg but only has a bachelor's in journalism from a low-ranked California college and a master's in filmmaking from "No Free Speech" University of California, Berkeley. He plays second fiddle to article first author William Turton, who may not even be old enough to have gone to college.

William Turton was hailed as a tech reporter wunderkind, particularly about cybersecurity, when just a few years ago as a teenager he was writing about video game playing and "broke" a story about "hackers" briefly taking down the Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox Live networks, as part of a marketing scheme. The IT incompetent media is full of IT incompetent older people who think young people must inherently be IT experts, which is exactly wrong since becoming an IT expert takes years of study at good universities and then years of IT experience. So now a leading national news source, Bloomberg, is letting a foolish kid write influential stories about national security that could lead to war.

If this sequel wasn't such a real tragedy, it would indeed be a comedy.
