Deficient Forethought for Digital Technology Risks with Alexander Stein

Technology can be mesmerizing. 

We are all lured by the seemingly endlessly tantalizing stream of emerging technologies that promise to connect and enrich our lives. But there is a potential dark side. For every great innovative benefit, there are accompanying risks.

Technology risks are often ignored, to the detriment of users. Even with massive hacks and breaches, the general public has not learned to be more careful and proactive. 

It is time to explore the risks we ignore in the technology we desire!


In today’s Cybersecurity Insights podcast, I am talking with Dr. Alexander Stein, an expert in human decision-making and behaviors involving cybersecurity vulnerabilities and the unintended consequences of technologies.

Dr. Stein highlights the systemic problem of trust in technology and breaks down many of the root behavioral challenges. He also provides some recommendations we all can apply to shift the technology and human interaction ecosystem, in a way that better manages technology risks.  

Special thanks to this week’s guest, Dr Alexander Stein, whom you can follow on LinkedIn and his website.
