Jonathan Rolland is a Senior Writer at CyberNews.
With a father journalist on French TV and radio, Jonathan understood early on that internet was the way forward for journalism. Having graduated in Philosophy and English literature, he went on to study multimedia project management in 2001 – learning to play with Dreamwaver, Director or 3D Max and, above all, becoming a “softcore” geek.
Over the next decade, Jonathan collaborated with various media outlets in France such as Ouest-France, arte.fr, Telerama, music365.fr, M6 or etonnants-voyageurs.fr. Writing mainly in the fields of literature, music and general news, he retained a passion for all things tech, geeking out about hardware, gaming, photography and guitars at every possible opportunity.
After a break from journalism that he spent as an entrepreneur in the hospitality sector, Jonathan joined the founding team of CyberNews. A researcher at heart, Jonathan enjoys above all the process of investigation, hunting down privacy and security risks that could affect users and companies alike. He also loves reporting on the latest trends and reviewing tech gadgets. His work was featured in Forbes, Security Magazine, Dark Reading, Techradar, BBC and other publications.
When he's not philosophising about the relationship between humans and tech and the way it affects and shapes our societies for better or worse, Jonathan spends his time playing guitar, honing his baking skills or planing his next photography-worthy travel destination.
