Episode 9: Kendra Albert, Elizabeth Anne Watkins, and the Cyber Security Digital Divide

Hey! This is Emory, you’re listening to another episode of Tech Policy Grind a podcast from the Internet law and Policy Foundry – and this one coming up  – this one you’re listening to right now – I think it might just be my favorite episode we’ve recorded thus far. An absolutely fascinating discussion with two academic powerhouses – Kendra Albert and Elizabeth Anne Watkins. Joe will introduce Kendra and Elizabeth in just a moment, but Kendra is a technology lawyer, a fellow at the Internet Law and Policy Foundry and together with Elizabeth they recently published and have presented on their work on the Gig Econmy and the Digital Security Divide.

On today’s episode we’ll talk about that work, the issue of cyber security educational disparity in the gig economy, and what can be done about it – but we also talk about their experiences in the Ivy leagues, how an arts education carries over to law school, and the social and cultural elements of cyber security awareness. As always, if you like the show, please rate and review us on iTunes, and consider reaching out to us on Twitter at TechPolicyGrind! We’re always looking for feedback and new guests and topics for the show. So, I hope you enjoy this upcoming discussion as much as I did, with Joe Jerome, Kendra Albert and Elizabeth Anne Watkins.
