Andra Cazacu chats with ITSPmagazine’s Selena Templeton for the Diverse IT podcast about what it’s like to be a woman working at a Romanian cybersecurity technology provider. Tune in to hear how poverty and a later end to Communism meant that there was no time for gender discrimination in Romania, how a mixed environment at Bitdefender keeps their productivity and motivation high (artists, teachers and doctors who are also security developers or technologists), and the difference between effective machine learning and unsupervised algorithms when it comes to replacing human jobs.
