The Cybersecurity Podcast

Cybersecurity is not just computers and digital processes. Whether it's the threat or the response, the most important, and most interesting, part of the story is the people behind the keyboard. That’s why we’re launching The Cybersecurity Podcast, a monthly program featuring key leaders and thinkers in this space. Our half-hour podcast will go beyond the headlines to discuss some of the most pressing issues and newest ideas in cybersecurity.

Former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden joins The Cybersecurity Podcast to talk about his new book, "Playing to the Edge: American Intelligence in the Age of Terror." Hayden – now a principal at The Chertoff Group – discusses the need to balance national security secrets and the public's right to government transparency, his reaction after Edward Snowden revealed details from mass surveillance programs he started, and why he's siding in favor of strong encryption for consumers.  

Also joining New America's Peter Singer and Passcode's Sara Sorcher this episode is Federal Trade Commissioner Julie Brill. They talk about "Privacy Shield," the new agreement governing transatlantic data flow agreement between the US and the EU. They also discuss why Europeans think America is the "Wild West" when it comes to privacy policies, what more companies can do to ensure they are respecting consumers' rights, and what's at stake for privacy with the burgeoning Internet of Things.
