On this episode, Tom Eston discusses empathy in cybersecurity with Andra Zaharia, host of the Cyber Empathy Podcast.
We talk about finding her passion for contributing to the industry and the importance of empathy in cybersecurity. We cover how empathy relates to cybersecurity in the industry, the importance of being empathetic in our roles as cybersecurity professionals, and why the phrase “users are the weakest link in security” is nothing more than victim blaming.
We also discuss the long term implications of new technology and how we can help educate people on how to build and use technology with kindness and how even impacting one person can make a difference.
