Chats on the Road to RSA Conference 2019 | Cybersecurity Futures 2025 | With Dawn Thomas and Alan Cohn

By Marco Ciappelli | Co-Host Sean Martin

Well, let’s start with something we should all know by now: Cybersecurity is a global issue. How could it be otherwise considering that technology has connected all of us? Literally connected. It is not just a matter of communication between people far away or making distances much shorter; we are talking about connecting all of us in a way that we would not have thought possible a few decades ago. 

The decisions we are making today about technology interacting with humans are going to affect our society in 2025 and way beyond that time.

Prevention Is Always Better Than Reaction When It Comes To Safety. Cybersecurity Is No Different, But What To Do If You Become A Victim Of Cybercrime?

By Marco Ciappelli
A conversation with Kristin Judge | CEO/President of the Cybercrime Support Network

It seems to me that we have a long way to go before the general population and small businesses become aware of the very likely risk of becoming victims of cybercrime. While there are many things that can be done to reduce the risk — the “100% safe” scenario is a myth — we certainly cannot expect (at this time) that someone or something is going to take those steps for us.

Cybersecurity as a Branding Value for Companies. It is not a cost, it is an investment.

By Marco Ciappelli
A conversation with Sarah Squire Senior Technical Architect at Ping Identity

Times have changed quite a bit since cybersecurity wasn’t even a word. Now it is most definitely a thing, a problem, a cost, and also a value. 

The fact that cybersecurity sounds boring and the fact that it is mostly perceived as a cost doesn’t help your chance for success.

But is that true?

By Sean Martin

As a long-time recruiter, Kirsten Renner suggests that we may be leveraging processes and technologies to our disadvantage, forgetting about the human element of the whole process. Are you asking the right questions and then shutting up and listening to what the candidates have to say? Or are you hurting yourself in your own recruiting processes?

A Few Philosophical Thoughts About Artificial Intelligence: An Ancient Wish To Forge The Gods?

By Marco Ciappelli | Co-Host Sean Martin
A conversation with Ariel Herbert-Voss

Computer science, philosophy, psychology, sociology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and many more disciplines are needed to prepare our future with AI. Because we cannot hide behind a pointing finger and say machine did it; that would mean that we, humans, did it.

In my humble opinion, Artificial Intelligence is fundamentally an extension of humanity and an evolution of the state of being human.

AI Robots Are Developing Prejudices Because Of Us Mere Mortals

By Selena Templeton | Co-host Marco Ciappelli

Selena Templeton and co-host Marco CIappelli chat with Ariel Herbert-Voss, a Ph.D. student at Harvard University with a focus on adversarial machine learning, about artificial intelligence, machine learning and unconscious bias. It’s no secret that algorithms are, or can be, inherently biased but the issue is not technology – the issue is about human nature. And we can only build something that is fair if we are.
