Venturing into video: Interview with Ahmed Banafa

The focus of Cybersecurity Magazine is high quality content which connects the research community with industry experts. These days, content not only comes in the form of written text. Early this year, we started to produce audio interviews in which we predicted what’s ahead for this year or where we interviewed renowned experts about their life experience and the cybersecurity industry.

Today, we took another step forward with our first video interview with Prof. Ahmed Banafa, whom we already interviewed in the past. Back then, he was sharing his expertise on the Internet of Things. In this editorial podcast, we talk with Prof. Banafa about privacy in times of Covid-19. We can honestly recommend this conversation, it’s enlightening to hear his thoughts.

Also, we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce our very own YouTube channel, where we will post our videos in the future. We would be happy if you subscribe to it, there is more to come, we can promise that. One thing to look forward to, for example, is an interview with the Dean of research for SANS Technology Institute, on the topics of passwords. Perfectly, but not conincidentally timed with world password day on May 7th.

So, please, do subscribe to our YouTube channel for more high quality content on cybersecurity – and if you’re into written text as well, think about subscribing to our monthly newsletter, too.
