We talk with Evelyn de Souza, former Chief Technology and Architecture Officer at Cisco, and industry thought leader for cloud security and data privacy. Our conversation ranges from problems with how privacy is not included in design to the best way to bridge the security education gap by applying security in a digestible way for business users. She shares how she got into the technology field, gives us a sneak peek into her new startup Virtuoso. AI, and why privacy is on the top of her mind.
