Inside the Media Mind of Byron Acohido: Black Hat Edition

On this week’s episode of Inside the Media Minds we meet with Byron Acohido, Pulitzer-winning journalist, Founder and Executive Director of The Last Watchdog. 

According to Byron, issues within the cybersecurity realm today are “richer than ever,” leaving no shortage of interesting stories to tell. When he started “The Last Watchdog,” he did so just as the world of blogging was coming into fruition. Today, the central conflict within the stories remain the same: The digital transformation is a great advancement, but continues to create external risks and vulnerabilities.

During his week at Black Hat, Byron was excited to see “what the good guys are doing” to get ahead of the inevitable cyber attacks. 

Listen to learn: 

  • Byron’s thoughts on the most recent Capital One breach
  • “The person behind the story”
  • How a company can be truly transparent and the value it brings
