Diana Kelley: Welcome to “My Cyber Why”! — a glimpse into the life and work of experts from around the world who have dedicated themselves to protecting cyberspace. There’s no shortage of scary headlines about the latest hacks and malware releases.

In each episode guests answer four questions:

1. Who are you?

3. Why do you do it?
