How the Cosas de Hackers podcast came about
the podcast “hacker stuff” was born in March of this year, but the idea had already been around the heads of its creators some time ago. She was the great protagonist of the many conversations that Andrés Naranjo and José María Ávalos had between coffee and coffee in different bars. Its main purpose is to make people who are working for and for digital transformation in Spain known: “The first objective is to make known those professionals involved in the digital transformation of our country, but from a more human and personal perspective. , without letting go of the projects, tasks and jobs in which they are involved”.
Far from stopping there, they also want to help give visibility to women who work in the world of new technologies, to ensure that they have the recognition they deserve.
In addition, with this podcast they want to make their listeners aware of the difference between a hacker and a cybercriminal: “part of our intention behind the name of the project, “Hacker Things”, is precisely to “fight” and teach that hackers are those who watch over everyone’s security. They are the ones in charge of alerting users, companies and institutions of possible failures”.
What content can you find in the podcast
The program has several different sections. The main one consists of an interview, where they discuss with the guest their personal and professional journey. In turn, they publicize their projects related to innovation and digital transformation, which they consider deserve to be known by their listeners: “We support those projects of our friends in the community that we believe deserve to be recognized: Román Ramírez and his GOODJOB FOUNDATION , Beatriz Cerrolaza with MYPUBLICINBOX, Casimiro Nevado and Carlos Loureilo from the National Police, with the C1B3RWALL ACADEMY, Óscar Maqueda with the National CybeLeague from the Civil Guard, among others, and more than 30 guests”.
After the interview, they discuss current news with the guest. But, its star section is “Las Noticias Locas”, which takes on a more casual tone. Here the presenters and the guest each bring a peculiar, rare or striking news on a topic that is related to technology.
Also, they have released a section that they themselves define as “very rogue”, which they have called “Cachivaches”, where they analyze the race to connect all our devices to the network. Finally, they have a more technical section called “Ágora”, whose format is a round table made up of various guests.
How much do we Spaniards know about cybersecurity?
Digital transformation is playing a fundamental role in large and small companies, which despite the current difficult situation caused by COVID 19, are able to get ahead. In Spain, the economic muscle is the SMEs, and they must reinvent themselves or they will suffer this change even more, because this pandemic is changing many things for us and some will leave never to return.
Andrés and José María are clear that the average mark that Spaniards would get in an exam on cybersecurity and new technologies would be low. The same happens in the rest of the countries: “Bad because we use technology much more than we are interested in it. Much more awareness needs to be raised about the responsible use of technology, its cybersecurity and privacy.”
Although there is a long way to go, More and more public and private entities They are taking this matter very seriously. Many are already working to make the population aware of how important it is to be informed and learn about the world of cybersecurity and new technologies.
