For the past several years, CHHS has collaborated with the CyberWire podcast as an academic research partner. The CyberWire daily podcast is hosted by the Maryland-based CyberWire news service, which delivers real-time cybersecurity news updates to a global audience. CHHS Public Policy & External Affairs Program Director Ben Yelin has been a frequent guest on the daily podcast, discussing news items related to cybersecurity law and policy. CHHS Cybersecurity Program Director Markus Rauschecker has contributed as a guest as well.
As public interest in cybersecurity law and policy interest has intensified, CHHS and the CyberWire have partnered on a new podcast, Caveat. Yelin co-hosts the podcast with CyberWire daily podcast host Dave Bittner. The podcast’s first episode was released on October 23rd, 2019. Episodes will be released every Wednesday.
The Cyberwire issued a press release announcing the new podcast:
This latest addition to the CyberWire’s popular lineup of programs is hosted by Dave Bittner and Ben Yelin, the Program Director for Public Policy and External Affairs at the University of Maryland’s Center for Health and Homeland Security. Each week, Dave and Ben break down important current legal cases, policy battles, and regulatory matters along with the news headlines that matter most. It’s not just a podcast for lawyers and policymakers; security professionals, businesses, and anyone concerned about privacy and security in the digital age will find the discussions accessible, relevant, and thought provoking.
“Laws and policies haven’t kept pace as people’s personal and business lives have become increasingly and inextricably enmeshed in the rapidly evolving technologies that connect our world, drive commerce, and have become central tools of government and law enforcement,” said Peter Kilpe, the CyberWire’s Executive Editor. “With the addition of ‘Caveat’ to our lineup, we’re excited to have a more in-depth forum to discuss these critically important matters and make them accessible to a wider audience.”
CHHS is always interested in collaborating with public and private sector partners to share its subject-matter expertise, and discuss issues relevant to our work. We are particularly pleased that Caveat gives us an opportunity to reach a larger global audience through a 21st Century media platform.
