VIA Visionaries: Cybersecurity Lessons from the Frontlines with Stan Byers of USAID

Have you ever wondered what role cybersecurity plays in development and humanitarian aid organizations? Us too! That’s why we’ve invited Stan Byers, Cybersecurity Team Lead at USAID, to VIA’s HQ to chat with our CEO, Colin Gounden, for the latest installment of our VIA Visionaries interview series.

Holding true to the purpose of our VIA Visionaries series, Stan shares a collective mission with VIA of making our communities cleaner, safer, and more equitable. We’re going to chat about Stan’s role at USAID, an independent U.S. government agency that is responsible for administering civilian foreign aid and development assistance, and his remarkable career. From advocating for clean energy in post-conflict regions to driving cybersecurity initiatives at the national level, Stan has surely cemented his standing as an exceptional expert in cybersecurity and humanitarian aid.
