Miriam Wugmeister: Technology’s Not as Complicated as You Think
Miriam Wugmeister was a guest on the The Cyberwire podcast, sharing her in-depth experience and understanding of privacy and data security laws, obligations, and practices, as well as how she started working in data privacy and how young people can begin careers of their own in technology and cybersecurity.
“Technology is not nearly as complicated or scary as the technology people tell you [it] is,” Miriam said. “A lot of people say, oh, I can't do data security because I don't know how to code. And the answer is, you don't have to. You have to be smart, you have to be willing to ask questions, you have to be willing to admit what you don't know. But this area is a fantastic area for young people because the law is just developing. We're all learning it together literally at the same time. And so I think privacy, cyber, technology, it's just, it is a great place for certainly young lawyers and also just young people in general because…it's such an exciting time.”
