Why You May Be Alienated by Cybersecurity Topics

Featuring Dr Magda Chelly on TEDxNewton

As human beings, we adopt technology fast. But for us - cybersecurity professionals, the way we use technology might put everyone at risk.

Yet, we are doing a fine job of alienating everyone we are trying to reach by presenting “cybersecurity” as if it were a known domain to all. The assumption that everyone from the laymen to the experts would be able to understand cybersecurity in the same way does not hold. So, is there a way to make cybersecurity simple and easy for everyone to understand?

In this breezy talk, Dr Chelly shares some of her top tips to build and drive cyber intuition so as to stave off alienation by cybersecurity topics.
