Deciphering The Net

When The Net hit theaters in 1995, the World Wide Web was in its infancy, Internet access was spotty, slow, and unreliable, and the concepts of identity theft and database hacking were completely foreign to most people. Sandra Bullock's character Angela Bennett is a smart and resourceful but introverted systems analyst whose world is thrown into chaos by a shadowy hacking group, a story that foreshadows much of what has come to pass in the nearly 25 years since. This is Deciphering The Net, with Fahmida Rashid, Melanie Ensign, and Dennis Fisher.
