Cybersecurity, Warfare, and Women (w Victoria Beckman)
Show Notes

In this episode of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth  and Dr. K Royal connect with Victoria Beckman, the lead over Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit for the Americas and an award-winning woman in cybersecurity. Victoria is a former law student of K’s at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and they both wound up in privacy-related fields. Of course, Victoria’s route to her current role was quite indirect, including a background in engineering.

We focus on a recent special report by Microsoft on the cyberwarfare being conducted in the Ukraine by Russia, aloing with Microsoft’s annual digital defense report, the last one issued in 2021. Join us as we discuss these hot topics, along with data protection basics, such as passwords (as also discussed by K and her husband Tim in episode 34 in season 2) and phishing attacks.
