Episode Description

Are you armed with the privacy and security knowledge and awareness necessary to identify all the holiday scams and cybercrooks that emerge and try not only new scams and crimes, but also all the same scams and crimes that have proven to be effective year after year for decades? Are you prepared to help those to whom you give tech gifts so that they use them in the most secure and privacy-protecting way possible? Can you secure those tech gadgets that you receive as gifts to keep the hackers from accessing them and using them to steal your money or commit identity fraud to basically steal your life? You all need to maintain a high-level of awareness and knowledge about privacy and cybersecurity for your life during the holidays. Listen in to hear my conversation with two cybersecurity and privacy experts answer these and many more questions. Cheryl Jackson and Todd Fitzgerald have spent their entire careers dedicated to educating and raising the awareness of security and privacy issues for their co-workers, clients and the general public. Todd and Cheryl also share a huge amount of information about awareness events and education they’ve provided over the years, including those that were huge successes, and a few they were not so successful, and describe why.

Data Security and Privacy with the Privacy Professor

New shows the first Saturday of each month at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

There are more information security and privacy threats than ever before. As more technologies emerge, more surveillance tactics are used, and more artificial intelligence systems are deployed, cybersecurity and privacy risks grow exponentially. Rebecca has spent her entire career working to improve information security and privacy protections, by not only raising awareness of the issues within businesses and other types of organizations, but also by raising the awareness of these risks in the public and helping them to understand how to better protect their own personal data, allowing them to take their privacy protections into their own hands. Rebecca offers information about these existing and emerging security and privacy risks and provides fresh insights into the impacts of exploiting these risks, and gives guidance, tips, expert advice and news, with fascinating guests, to help all organizations, and the general public, understand what they need to do to mitigate these risks.
