Dr.. Lydia Kostopoulos
The first guest on the Security Mastermind podcast is Dr. Lydia Kostopoulos (pictured), senior vice president of Emerging Tech Insights at KnowBe4. After the September 11 attacks, Costopoulos, a freshman at the university at the time, became interested in the topic of cybersecurity. I decided to focus on studying cyber security. During this podcast, Kostopoulos explores the zeitgeist in which we now find ourselves, known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. A period in which topics such as artificial intelligence, DNA editing, nanotechnologies, mixed media, smart sensors, and quantum computing are discussed. We’re at the beginning of new infrastructure being built for things like smart cities and autonomous vehicles. Given the abundance of new technologies and the rapid pace at which things change and evolve, there is a huge gap in cybersecurity skills. As long as technology changes, it must continue to develop skills.
