Cyber Creators With Purpose

At Hacker Valley Media, we are passionate about empowering our cybersecurity community through high-quality content that entertains as much as it educates and inspires. We understand the challenges and triumphs of the cybersecurity profession because we have been there ourselves.

Co-founders, Chris Cochran and Ron Eddings were both cyber practitioners for 10+ years. By luck or fate, in 2019 their paths crossed again and they started the flagship show Hacker Valley Studio to explore the human element of cyber. With raging success and support from the community, they expanded to a repertoire of shows and brought on new hosts with specific niches in cyber.

Today we're proud to be a family-run business, with Jen Cochran and Monika Eddings leading our marketing and operations. Our mission is to provide YOU with the best cybersecurity storytelling.
