Championing Cybersecurity with Rachel Wilson

Episode 92: Championing Cybersecurity with Rachel Wilson

While cybersecurity is not a new concept, a spotlight has been placed on its importance given the ever-increasing sophistication of cybercriminals, COVID-19, and the new work-from-home evolution.

 

Our incredibly special guest is none other than the Head of Cybersecurity for Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, Rachel Wilson.

 

After her childhood love of all things cryptography, code making and code breaking, her dream of working for the National Security Agency (NSA) was realized, where she spent 15 years in various leadership roles and managed the NSA’s counterterrorism operation and led global enterprise in detecting and disrupting terrorist plotting against the U.S. and its allies. Thereafter she entered the world of financial services and was later tapped by Morgan Stanley.

 

Rachel is extremely passionate about cybersecurity and this timely discussion helps us all understand where we are with cybersecurity and how we can protect ourselves. You don’t want to miss this. 

 

04:68: How the COVID-19 pandemic is creating a deepening cybercrime pandemic.

09:03: The reality that even before the current COVID-19 pandemic, the wealth management space has been a target for years with now over 70% of cybercrime being financially motivated.  Morgan Stanley’s desire to give people more ability to manage their own money safely online was the catalyst for forming a cybersecurity team.

14:26: Rachel shares her passion for more women to enter the world of cybersecurity which stands at only 12% compared to roughly 25% of women in technology.

18:29: She shares tips on what you can do to protect your operating systems, browsers, apps, phones, and conduct what she calls, good cybersecurity hygiene.

New Thoughts about Negotiating with Mori Taheripour

Episode 91: New Thoughts about Negotiating with Mori Taheripour

 

In this episode, I sat work with the fabulous Mori Taheripour. The powerhouse professor who teaches Negotiation and Dispute Resolution to undergraduate and graduate students at the  Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.  She’s also the author of Bring Yourself: How to Harness the Power of Connection to Negotiate Fearlessly.

 

From Public Health in the AIDS field to teaching at Wharton, Mori’s experiences have armed her with the skills to be a great negotiator. For her, negotiation starts with learning more about oneself. She believes that you need to better understand yourself, what you want, and know that you deserve what you’re asking for. Once you have a grasp on that, you’ll connect with others effortlessly.  

 

To hear more on negotiations, what they mean, and how to approach them – listen in! Mori provides some powerful insight that we can all benefit from. 

 

15:05: Why women can and should be great negotiators.

16:35: Understanding that negotiation is a learned skill. 

33:33: What negotiation really means and the mindset to have when you walk into your next negotiation.

Conversation and Care with Dr. Joy Lere

Episode 90: Conversation and Care with Dr. Joy Lere

 

Our special guest is Dr. Joy Lere, a psychologist, consultant, speaker and writer whose practice focuses on the intersection of human behavior and finance. Specializing in money, mindset and meaning, her experience has shown that the primary issue driving demand for her services, directly or indirectly, relates to money. She helps patients become financially savvy, emotionally strong and confident.

 

In my jubilant conversation with Joy, she discussed how to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and how it all starts with self-care. Self-care is about making choices for yourself that gives you an opportunity to reflect, de-stress and regain control over your sleep, your calendar and personal space where you feel grounded. She also spoke of the recently common feeling of “important anxiety.” It’s a response that allows us to adapt to the world around us.

 

This conversation was exactly what I needed to center myself and hope it will do the same for you. Listen in! 

 

A few highlights:

06:31: How to use your “emotional thermometer” to monitor and assess your current state. 

09:15: Why anxiety can be important. 

14:15: When the basics of eat, sleep and hygiene are off, we’re more susceptible to having difficulties managing our emotions.  

20:33: The importance of being able to “microscope” and how zooming in and out on what’s important in the moment can help us cope. 

23:43: Why self-care should be intentional and a protected priority.

Women, Movies, and Media with Madeline Di Nonno

Episode 89: Women, Movies, and Media with Madeline Di Nonno

This guest is one for the ages. We sat down with The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, CEO, Madeline Di Nonno to discuss ways they’re encouraging television and other media to infuse intersectionality, diversity and inclusion in their content.

 

Founded in 2004 by Academy Award Winning Actor Geena Davis, the Institute is the only organization working collaboratively within the entertainment industry to engage, educate and influence the creation of gender-balanced onscreen portrayals, reducing harmful stereotypes and creating an abundance of unique female characters targeting children 11 and under. The nonprofit’s slogan is, If she can see it, she can be it.TM

 

I’ve been following Geena and her organization for quite some time. When I joined as a member to support the organization, I dreamed of having this episode’s guest on my podcast. What an interview!

 

A few highlights:

10:36: How the Institute was brought to fruition through Geena Davis’ realizations as an actress and mother.

13:47: What resources they’re developing to aid content creators in achieving gender equality from the developmental stage.

16:14: How director Dan Scanlon took heed to ensure that Monsters University realized 50% of female characters. 

23:26: Why there are not only a lower number of female characters, but they also speak and are on-screen far less than their male counterparts.

27:34: The importance of paying attention to what your kids watch.

Changing the Language of Wealth with Chloe B. Mckenzie

Episode 83: Changing the Language of Wealth with Chloe B. Mckenzie

 

Chloe B. Mckenzie is an inspiration and one I absolutely feel privileged to interview. 

 

She’s a brilliant and resilient woman who coined the term “wealth justice”. Her mission is to close the wealth gap for black women and create a curriculum that delivers messages about wealth and wealth accumulation. The most interesting part? Her target audience is students, starting in kindergarten! She has quite the story – from an abusive family to a liver failure – she’s unstoppable at only 27.  

 

After you listen, do yourself a favor and pick up her book, The Activist Investor.

 

A few highlights: 

  • 10:13: How growing up in an abusive household pushed her to be resilient and independent, forcing her to start high school at the age of 12 and surf couches.
  • 12:16: Chloe was pulled towards financial services because she had a desire to be in a space where not many looked like her.
  • 13:52: From the trading floor to the hospital, Chloe went through five liver surgeries in the span of three months. Oddly enough, she wasn’t granted medical leave, so she worked from her hospital bed.
  • 15:26: She defines what the term “wealth justice” means. 
  • 20:51: It’s important for students to develop healthy relationships with money and wealth because pop culture and media tend to create toxic relationships.
