Discussion with Dr. Vinton Cerf

This is a recording of a special SecureTheVillage Leadership Council meeting on July 8th, 2020, hosted by Dr. Stan Stahl.

Special Guest: Dr. Vinton Cerf, widely known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” made a special appearance at our July 8th meeting. The legendary Dr. Cerf provides a 3-tier syllogism for cybersecurity, the most fundamental being the importance of educating people about how to adopt more ethical behaviors.

Dr. Cerf, the Chief Internet Evangelist at Google, is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols, the underlying architecture of the Internet. In December 1997, President Clinton presented the U.S. National Medal of Technology to Cerf and his colleague, Robert E. Kahn, for founding and developing the Internet. Kahn and Cerf were named the recipients of the ACM Alan M. Turing award in 2004 for their work on the Internet protocols. The Turing award is sometimes called the “Nobel Prize of Computer Science.”
