Episode Description

2021 was a tumultuous year for cybersecurity. The ongoing pandemic, supply chain and widespread ransomware attacks against industries of all kinds including critical infrastructure have made the year feel like nothing short of cyber chaos. Hackers targeted and brought hospitals down. Cyber-attacks ran rampant against the Colonial Pipeline, JBS, Solarwinds, among a seemingly never-ending list of victims. And to top it all off, the Log4J vulnerability reared its face. All that being said, it wasn’t all bad. 2021 also brought needed digital disruption, global cyber collaboration, governments finally viewing cybersecurity as a serious enough threat needing major help, and groundbreaking innovations that are helping to change the cyber landscape as we know it. As 2021 winds down, we turn to look ahead at what’s to come in 2022 and imagine what the new year will bring. What does the cyber landscape look like in 2022? What threats are lurking on the horizon? What advancements will we see? How different will things look a year from now? Will the cyber chaos continue? And frankly, what do you need to know to keep yourself, your family and your business safe from new cyber threats? Join us as we welcome guests James Alliband and Karen Worstell, Senior Cybersecurity Strategists at VMWare to talk 2022 predictions and what we can expect in the cyber world this year.

My Connected Life

My Connected Life

Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

We live in a fully connected world. We all use and share digital information in our daily activities, in our businesses, with our money, even for our health. I should know. My name is Tyler Cohen Wood. I’m a an award winning cybersecurity expert and former U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency Senior Intelligence Officer. My professional work helps keep your information secure and private. I know many technology secrets that keep our world safe. But I also have a secret that I share with 25 million other Americans. I suffer from a rare autoimmune disease that has no cure. My life has been disrupted over the past several years looking for answers to save myself, shuffling from doctor to doctor, specialist to specialist, trapped in an endless loop of siloed care that rarely gives answers to unexplained conditions. What I discovered on this tumultuous medical journey would change the course of my life, and in turn, give me the opportunity to bring my cybersecurity knowledge and my patient experience together. I’ve launched My Connected Life: Digital Health Disrupted, a talk show about the business of digital health. I’ll take you on a journey to better understand how to improve the patient experience, protect the privacy of our digital health information, and keep our cyber connected lives safe. Each week we’ll learn more about the latest digital trends to keep the cybersecurity of the entire healthcare ecosystem (and our sensitive medical data) within our control. The business of digital health is our business. I believe it’s time we learn to own it.
