Episode Description

We all hear stories about the Dark Web. We may even get reports from our credit monitoring services that our information has been found on the Dark Web. The Dark Web conjures up images of buying and selling illicit drugs, weapons, malware, ransomware, user credentials, bank accounts, credit cards, health records or really anything, all paid for with cryptocurrency. But what does this mean to us in our connected lives? We’ll take on the questions, explain the Dark Web in a different way, and show you how it affects you. What can I do to keep my information safe? How do I know if my information is on the Dark Web and what can I do if it is? In this episode, we’ll answer all these questions and demystify the scariest place on the internet. Join us with Dark Web cybersecurity experts Scott Schober, Bob Schiff and Ken Muir as we take you on a journey through the Dark Web to help you keep your data in your hands and protect your 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.
