The World Needs to Understand Cybersecurity, and We’re Here to Help

In a time where our lives are increasingly digital, understanding cybersecurity is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity. Yet, the world of cybersecurity is often positioned as some jargon-filled, complex world that’s for someone else to think about.

That’s what motivated us to create our podcast, Cyber Made Human, aimed at breaking down these barriers and making cybersecurity accessible to everyone.

I come from a creative background and was surprised to find how much I love this industry since joining five years ago.

Why “Cyber Made Human“?

The name says it all. We believe that at the heart of cybersecurity are people: those who protect us and those who pose threats. We often hear the biggest vulnerability in cyber is human, so let’s make it accessible to everyone.

Episode 1: From Boredom to Cyber Fame: The Making of ‘Email Prankster’ James Linton

To kick things off, we couldn’t think of a better guest than James Linton, a former web designer turned cybersecurity prankster. James shares his journey from a mundane day job and a frustrating experience with Barclays Bank to phishing high-profile figures like Harvey Weinstein and the Trump Administration.

What we cover:

James Linton’s Transformation: How did a former web designer become a cybersecurity sensation?

Social Engineering: What is it, and why is it crucial to understand?

Political Motivations in Hacking: Is every hacker out to steal your credit card information, or is there more to the story?

Neurodiversity in Tech: How can different cognitive approaches benefit the tech industry?

Future of Email: What should we be prepared for?

How to Listen

The episode is now live and can be watched or listened to on YouTube, Spotify, Amazon, and Google podcasts.

Full disclosure: I asked it to write this article for me. But, I’ve learned that although it sped up the process considerably, human input is still required to fact-check, adapt the tone of voice and insert nuance and opinion.
