Show Notes: [0:00:46] Intro | Timely Topics A brief recap of our series on culture. Minimal, memorable, and meaningful values. [0:02:05] Planting, Protecting, and Propagating Your Culture The power of alliteration. You can plant the seeds of your culture. ...but you can't force it. Culture is something you can determine and discover. Your purpose and values have to align with themselves and your culture at large. You have to check on this regularly, preferably annually. Pruning & What to Fight for Has your organization changed enough to warrant culling or adding a core value? Your mission statement can change as well. [0:10:30] How do You Reinforce Your Culture? With action! Culture without action is just aspirational consideration. Memorialize your values and display them for all to see. Every member of your leadership should be reminding, and living out by example, what's important in your company. [0:16:30] Reminder: You Already Have a Company Culture Culture is always growing, even if you choose to ignore it. Don't ignore it. [0:17:30] Other Ways You Can Develop Your Culture Celebrate and congratulate culture growth publicly. Ask questions based on your values during the interview and hiring processes. Just be mindful that you aren't using this as a way to discriminate. Your company values should impact the questions you ask. Reward those who demonstrate and protect your culture. If someone challenges your leadership or decision based on a core value...GOOD! Acknowledge and reward people for calling out when something doesn't live up to the organization's core values. Be careful of absolutes. Not everyone will be a fit for your organization. But if you have your values well defined, everyone will know what is and is not a good fit. [0:26:58] Final Thoughts on Planting, Protecting, and Propagating Your Culture "This is incredibly important work, and your work is never done." If can feel like you're not doing the most important thing when working on and being intentional about culture. ...but it's arguably one of the most important aspects of your business.

I bet your idea of self-care is flawed. Listen to Episode 82 “Finding Your Caregiving Self Care Style: Part One” to find out if it is and learn two ways you can bring self-care into your day. Show Notes If you have listened to any of my episodes that focus on self-care you know that I believe it is required of all caregivers to care for themselves. When I asked caregivers what they needed the most, the answer I got was - learn how to care for themselves. So for the next few episodes, we are going to do just that. Let's talk about ways caregivers can support themselves. I get it.. you might be skeptical right now but give me just 10 minutes of your time. Don't worry about writing anything down if you are driving or on a walk. All of this information is on the website so you can always reference that to find everything I talk about on this episode today. Self Care is Essential Self-care is essential for caregivers. If you listened to episodes 13 and episode 43 you know that I feel it is a requirement. Not only is it essential for your own health it also allows you to be the best caregiver you can be. It allows you to release the stress that builds up every day, allows you to become resilient so you find yourself feeling overwhelmed less often and it allows you to love your life while caregiving. There is scientific data that proves chronic stress is linked to Cardiovascular disease, depression and anxiety, and a weakened immune system. Doing things that keep you from chronic stress is essential for keeping you healthy. What is self-care? There are three problems that caregivers have when addressing self-care. 1. They don't feel that self-care is for people like them. 2. They don't have any time to do anything for themselves. 3. They don't know what they would do even if they wanted to. My answer to those objections are We need to work on your definition of self-care The problem isn't not having the time it's in how you prioritize your day. Self-care doesn't have to be complicated. Definition of self-care Let's start with the actual definition of self-care. According to the dictionary self-care is: The practice of taking action to preserve or improve one's own health. and The practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress. Nowhere in this definition do I see any specific events or activities listed. If we use this definition of self-care then it is open to interpretation. It is anything that you could do to protect your own well-being and happiness. The problem is that companies have decided to tell you what self-care should look like. Social media accounts promote what they want you to think self-care is. It can feel like the world is trying to tell you that you need self-care and the thing they are selling or the place they are promoting is the answer and almost always the person they use for their messaging is a young, healthy person wearing beautiful expensive clothing or hardly anything at all. You don't see yourself in that messaging. That is why I meet so many caregivers that tell me self-care isn't for them. I get that. If you think self-care is what you buy for yourself or what you go to do it's going to feel out of reach for you. Now, I'm not saying that taking a trip, getting a massage, or buying that expensive cream aren't good ways to release caregiver stress but most of those things are not daily forms of self-care. I'd consider them the extra things you do if you can. The problem is, you can't sell the act of doing nothing. It isn't glamorous but for some people taking a moment to sit and do absolutely nothing is their form of self-care. The other problem is, no one reaches out to help you learn what self-care means for you. You know you should be caring for yourself because people are always telling you that you should do it… usually when you are at a breaking point. Which is extremely unhelpful. Everyone telling you to take care of yourself but no one to give you ideas of what to do! Keep listening because we are going to get to that. You are the only person that can determine what self-care is for you. No matter what it is, the focus of it should be protecting your own well-being and happiness. Protecting your well-being means protecting your health. For caregivers, one of the most important things that need to be done is to find ways to deal with the stress of caregiving. I am going to give you options over the next three episodes for you to consider so you can find one thing that can be brought into your life consistently. Time for self-care Self-care needs to be a part of your daily life. It needs to become what you do every day, like going to the bathroom or brushing your teeth. It has to be non-negotiable. That means it has to be something you will actually do. I can spend hours talking to you about the benefits of meditation but if you don't believe you'd find that enjoyable it'll never work for you. You have to believe in yourself care and it needs to be as big or as small and you think it should be. However, if you tell me there is absolutely no time for you to do anything for yourself what I hear is you don't think you are worthy of being a priority. Some of the things that I am going to suggest you consider taking less than 5 minutes. You have that much time. It can take more than 5 minutes to find something to watch on Netflix and you probably spend more than 5 minutes a day on social media. Self-care is what you actively do to protect your own well-being and happiness and it can take as much or as little time out of your day but it needs to happen daily. I am positive you can do this. Let's look at two self-care options and see if any of them are things you would consider doing. Finding your self-care tool Self-care tool #1 - Stop It's as simple as that… just stop and do absolutely nothing. Stop for a couple of minutes, no phone, no book, don't add to your to-do list. Just stop. Stop doing, stop talking, stop trying to fix things. Stop and sit or simply lie down on the floor. Get to that place you are driving to, park, and stop. Turn off the radio and lean that seat back for a minute. We spend so much of our time doing. Take a minute to not do that. Just stop. Don't get ready to stop. Don't cue up something on the radio so you can stop. JUST STOP. Turn everything off. Just don't do anything. Just be. Let your thoughts float by. Don't try to change them or fix them. Don't try to stuff the ones down that see this as an opportunity to come up. There's nothing to analyze right now. Just stop and do nothing. I know I'm repeating myself because this is by far, the easiest thing for you to do, and most of you will not end up even trying it! You don't have any time for yourself? Just stop. Take a seat. Just a minute. You have a minute. Self-care isn't for you? Just lie down on the floor or sit in your car and recline the seat when you get to the grocery store. Everyone can take a break for a minute. Just a minute of doing nothing. No special breathing (although this would be a great time for that). No meditation. No assessing your emotions. Just stop doing! Give your brain a chance to catch up with you. Let your nervous system have a moment when it doesn't feel like it's under attack. Just stop! Self-care tool #2 - Walk/Get outside The next tool I would suggest trying is having a specific time of the day when you get out of the house. I know some of you are already thinking you don't have time for that or you can't do that because of the person you care for needs you around all the time. Even more of a reason to really listen to this one if that is the case. Oftentimes a caregiver's house can feel oppressive. Have you ever felt claustrophobic in your house because you've been in it for too long? Maybe you aren't confined to the house by your responsibilities but when you do leave it, is to do something specific and not to do something for yourself. Getting out of your house is a very good self-care tool. It shifts your focus to something other than what you were probably hyper-focused on at home. If there is a lot of stress in your life, getting out of the house can give you a break from that. It can be the distraction you need before making a big decision or having that conversation you don't really want to have. Getting out of the house can be a reset for you. It can remind you that you are part of a community. You have a chance to see other human beings and notice birds, the smell of the air, and the sounds of the world you live in. Have you ever left your house and noticed how everything feels different? All the things your mind was trying to fix, figure out and formulate move off to the side and you might feel a little bit more clear-headed. Or maybe you're just tired of hearing the same show on tv with the volume up 100% higher than it needs to. Before you pick up that bat and destroy the tv simply get out of the house. That's the why, here's the how. 5 min version Let's say you feel you can't really leave. If you really think this is something you'd like to do I would suggest seeing if there aren't 5 minutes in your day where things would be ok if you weren't there. If not, ask yourself if it is because your loved one needs you or you are scared to leave? Not in an effort to judge but to understand why you feel you can't leave. If you do find 5 minutes you might not be needed then try being out of the house for two minutes. Just step out the door and walk in one direction for one minute and then turn around. As you feel more comfortable you can try going out for longer. If you can't get away for that long the option for you would be to open the front door of your house and focus on what is outside. Stand there. Maybe you do this when you grab your coffee in the morning, or while you are waiting for lunch or dinner to finish. Find a time you would be by the door every day and see if you can take a minute to stand there and notice what is right outside. You can always do this with a window instead. 10 min version Get out and take a walk. It doesn't need to be fast. You don't have to wear workout clothes to do it. Just get out and walk away from the house for 5 minutes and then turn around. Can the walk be longer or shorter? Of course. Also, take into mind the safety of your surroundings, the weather, and please don't wear all black if you're going out in the dark. Ask yourself after the first time if you enjoyed it and could you do it every day? Be honest with yourself. If not every day then maybe a couple of times a week or a month but that would mean this isn't the thing you do daily for yourself. Maybe you find out you feel free when you go out for a short walk. Maybe this is the time you get to think through things. A time for you to be alone. Maybe even a time to listen to a short podcast or music. This short break could end up being something you get excited about every day but you won't know if you don't try it. 30 min version This might be something you don't do every day but it's worth mentioning because I know it feels good to do. Take a drive or take a long walk somewhere. Maybe you drive to a park or a place that has a scenic view and you just sit there for a couple of minutes. My favorite is to drive to grab some coffee. I turn my favorite music up loud in the car and I sing as loudly as I want. Or if classical music is your jam I'm with ya. Make this all about you and not about any chores or errands you need to do. Longer Of course you can do any of these things for longer periods of time. What we're focussing on here is a daily activity you can integrate into your day. Keep that in mind. If there are things you would love to try but you know you wouldn't do every day by all means make a note of it and do it when you can. We are just working on slowing down with the options I am giving you today. Both of these forms of self-care are free. You don't need anything to do them. In fact, the first one is about doing absolutely nothing. While doing nothing for a couple of minutes or sticking your head out of the door may seem inconsequential I challenge you to try them. For those of us who feel like we always need to be doing something to prove our worth, stopping is the best thing to do. It helps you catch up with how you are feeling and gives you the opportunity to see if there are things that you need to do for yourself that you've been too busy to notice. Slowing down allows your nervous system to take a break. Feeling that constant underlying stress and anxiety is not sustainable long term but you probably already know that. I know it's difficult to do things for yourself. Even thinking about taking some time for your own self-care can be uncomfortable. Next week I am going to share two more ways you can bring self-care into your day and why your self-care is important for the person you care for. For now, take a moment to think through how this isn't about you being selfish. Caring for yourself is about keeping you healthy, mentally and physically. It doesn't require you to buy or go anywhere if you don't want to. You just have to find the thing that will work for you and that you will do every day. Try just stopping. Maybe after listening to this you turn it off and sit in silence for a moment or maybe you go for a walk or stand outside for a bit. Experience these two things and see if it is possible for you to do and if it is something you'd actually do. Then next week there will be a new set of two things to try. If you want any feedback or have questions feel free to send me an email or ask in the FB group. These links are in the show notes at www.loveyourcaregivinglife.com
On this week's episode of Arbiters of Truth, our series on the online information ecosystem, Evelyn Douek and Quinta Jurecic spoke with Nick Pickles, the director of global public policy strategy at Twitter. They discussed a new paper just released by Twitter, “Protecting the Open Internet: Regulatory Principles for Policy Makers”—which sketches out, in broad strokes, the company's vision for what global technology policy should look like. The paper discusses a range of issues, from transparency to everyone's favorite new topic, algorithms. As a platform that's often mentioned in the same breath as Google and Facebook, but is far smaller—with hundreds of millions of users rather than billions—Twitter stands at an interesting place in the social media landscape. How does Twitter define the “open internet,” exactly? How much guidance is the company actually giving to policymakers? And, what does the director of global public policy strategy do all day?Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lawfare. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This episode is NOT an A-Z glossary of camera and film terminology. It IS a deep dive into why “film speak” is important for dancers and choreographers… and also why it is a total set up. Yes, I’ll demystify a few of the basic terms and technicalities, but I also dish out some of my favorite resources for a deeper dive on jargon, and I zoom in on (sorry, couldn’t help it) a few simple cues you can take from the camera to better craft your performance on screen.Quick Links: Every Frame a Painting: https://www.youtube.com/c/everyframeapainting Team DeakinsPodcast: https://teamdeakins.libsyn.com/ Protecting the frame Podcast: https://www.protectingtheframe.com/ 100 ideas that changed film: https://www.laurenceking.com/product/100-ideas-that-changed-film-2/ 30 second film photography: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25026033-30-second-photographyTranscript: Intro: This is words that move me, the podcast where movers and shakers, like you get the information and inspiration. You need to navigate your creative career with clarity and confidence. I am your host master mover, Dana Wilson. And if you’re someone that loves to learn, laugh and is looking to rewrite the starving artist story, then sit tight, but don’t stop moving because you’re in the right place. Dana: Well, hello, my friend. And welcome to Words that Move me. I’m Dana. And as always, I am stoked that you are here. This is going to be fun. As we’re speaking, I am monitoring my pitch using a, um, pitch monitoring app. My vocal recovery is slow, but sure. And I am. I’m working to use all the tools available to me to fully recover as quickly and fully as possible. So forgive me if I’m a little bit distracted, I’m fascinated watching this little device record my voice, move up and down. Okay, moving right along. I’m excited about this episode because the subject came up in a words that move me community conversation recently. Um, somebody asked for the best resources for film terminology. They had never worked with film before. Um, and by film, honestly, I, I actually mean video, um, should be more specific with that language since this is the camera and film terminology episode. Um, but I, I started writing a response to this person who asked for some tips, pointers, vocabulary, et cetera, started writing this massive reply of an email, all of the words, all of the definitions. And I had to stop myself. This is a person who has not worked with dance on film before, and I was completely intimidating them, I think with this metric boat load of jargon. So I deleted my massive body of text and instead gave this person my very best advice, which is to have a clear vision in mind and be able to explain it with words or with other images and video references, and then be ready and willing to learn as you go. I encourage you to the same attitude. Throughout this episode be ready and willing to learn as you go heads up. I am not going to read a film or photography glossary to you in this episode. So if that is what you are here for, you can 100% do that faster and have the bonus feature of pictures and video examples. Um, you can have all that quickly by doing that Google search yourself. Actually I think a podcast might not be the most natural place to teach camera terminology because those visual aids are so important. So towards the end of this episode, I’ll give some of my favorite resources. But what I really w

Today we are talking with Chris McCabe about what is new and trending in black hat tactics and different ways that inventive sellers use to take each other down. Because there is a lot of money to be made in ecommerce, it attracts the best and worst operators. There are many types of nefarious tactics that are used and this is something that affects all levels of sellers and brands. Make sure you tune in to find out more! Chris worked for Amazon evaluating seller account performance and enforcing Amazon's policies. Now he runs ecommerceChris.com where he teaches sellers how to think like Amazon, protect their accounts and appeal listing restrictions and suspensions. He provides expert advice that helps to inform and clarify important decisions around Amazon investments by the sellers and any interested parties.
How do you distinguish between good people in your life and predatory or bad people? I'm talking about in every area of your life. This week's guest, Chris Hansen, strikes an incredibly emotional chord with me. You may or may not know that right after I got out of college, the first place I worked at was in a group home for abused and neglected boys. The time I spent with those boys had a PROFOUND effect on me, and as a result, I'm FIERCELY PROTECTIVE when it comes to SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN against all kinds of hurtful behaviors they may encounter. Chris is an eight-time EMMY AWARD-WINNING veteran investigative reporter, best known for his Dateline NBC segments, TO CATCH A PREDATOR. He has also hosted several other criminal investigations shows and currently produces a podcast and content on a YouTube channel that draws huge audiences each week. Sexual abuse of minors is particularly evil, and it happens far too often. That's why it's essential to listen to what Chris has to say. In fact, I believe Chris is the single MOST QUALIFIED PERSON there is to speak about dealing with sexual predators and steps you can take to PROTECT yourself and your children from these types of people. In addition to talking about his work on To Catch a Predator, Chris and I spend a lot of time on PRACTICAL AND VALUABLE INFORMATION you need to know about different types of predators. We get into how to spot an online predator, whether you're a parent, a teen, or a young single adult engaging in chat rooms and DATING apps. How about in business? How do you know if someone's got your best interest in mind or if they are setting you up for some predatory behavior to take advantage of you? Chris also goes into detail about what GROOMING is and how widespread it is in the online world. We cover the first steps a predator will take, recognizing this behavior and stopping it before it leads to other dangerous predatory practices. REMEMBER THIS. PREDATORS ALWAYS PURSUE THE MOST VULNERABLE TARGETS. As Chris explains, you must PROTECT your children and others by having AGE-APPROPRIATE DISCUSSIONS, DRAWING BOUNDARIES, and CREATING SAFER MEET-UPS especially when using dating apps. Online grooming extends to financial predators as well. Chris and I have both seen it many times. Stealing and bleeding money from vulnerable people online is a lot more prevalent than you might think, especially for older people. This isn't always an easy subject to talk about, but through his work, Chris Hansen continues to RAISE AWARENESS and keep it in the public's eye. It's IMPORTANT to listen this week and hear what Chris has to say.
We are all using digital marketing to grow our business, and in doing so we are creating brand equity along the way. Brand equity is a powerful concept that doesn't appear in your income statement but indirectly helps you grow your business in tandem with your digital and social media marketing.When it comes to brand equity, there are some legal aspects that are important to understand so that what you grow in your business becomes rightfully and legally yours. This is especially true if your dream is to sell your company to a larger entity or receive funding from venture capitalists.For that reason, we have a unique interview with someone today, Bao Tran, an IP attorney who is launching a new startup to help democratize the patent application process. In this interview you will learn:1) Why brandings are a significant part of company valuation2) Different innovative ways brands can be protected with Trademarks3) Different ways brands can be protected with CopyrightsAfter listening to this episode you will be able to navigate the legal system from a branding perspective and understand what next steps you might want to take.Key Highlights[02:54] Introduction of Podcast Guest, Bao Tran[07:29] Company Valuation[10:00] The Ways Companies Can Protect Their Brand and Valuation[12:53] Things That You Can Get Trademarked[14:58] Ways You Can Distinguish Your Product[17:03] Why Trademark Clearance Search Is Important?[17:26] Trademark Search Options[20:00] What Are Copyrights?[21:35] Best Practices for Copyrights[24:16] The Third Element in Trademark Context[26:17] How Can I Protect NFT?[27:37] Connect with BaoNotable QuotesIn our present world that most of the value is in the consumer recognition of your brand and that's why your work and you know, and your co-workers work in marketing is super critical to the value of a company.The point here is it's under your control. If you don't want anybody else to come in, you can do that, if you want to allow people coming in, in exchange for a royalty you can do that is under your control.But you know, when you're doing that for a very for a year, if you're stretching out to a year period, the risk is increasing that possibly somebody could enter your business ahead of you, and then block you from using that name.It's what we call a specimen. So you just upload that to the copyright, very inexpensive, and, you know, you can do it yourself and get that protection, easy protection.If you think that somebody is going to reuse that, then you want to control that by having a copyright registration.

On this episode of Huntavore, Nick was able to take a healthy sized doe in the early part of October. Now the preparation comes into play. Nick sits down with Paul Phodes, author and creator of Sizzlin Arrow. Together talk about the things you will need for an effective field kit, the skilled art of field dressing, and to embrace this powerful moment with your harvest. No need to skip corners here. The guys also touch on some cut up and preservation ideas that will have you making some notes before getting your harvest. All this and more on the next episode of Huntavore.Paul Rhodes, creator of Sizzlin Arrow, is an advocate for taking more control of your food. Whether it's making choices on where to source quality farm produce or actually heading to the woods to kill for your own meat. Paul also is involved with talking college students afield to hunt for deer and turkey in his home state of North Carolina. Couldn't think of a better person to chat with about field dressing.Field dressing is a powerful moment. It's the moment where the once living creature is transformed into a carcass for food. For several reasons folks skim over this process; its gross, its bloody, its intimidating, and not a lot of people have been taught the whole process. Paul walks us through his method. True tip here is using your fingers as guides cutting the underbelly from the inside out. Protecting that gut from knicks and tears. Second would be to get the anus out. Nothing to be worried about cutting inside the pelvic cavity. Run your blade along the pelvic bone, on the inside and it will free the colon enough to pull free.Paul and Nick go back and forth on steps of chilling the carcass, breaking it down into whole muscle or into pre-portioned meals, and how both guys appreciate the vac seal style of bagging the cuts.

In this episode of the podcast, host Ericka Adler, Roetzel shareholder and Health Law Practice Group Leader is joined by Carl White, owner of MarketVisory Group, for a discussion on how a medical practice can avoid the theft and misuse of social media accounts by their own employees. While current or former employees with access to a practice's social media can cause all sorts of issues from closing the accounts, to posting damaging information and potentially exposing the practice to HIPAA violations, there are some very basic steps a practice can take to avoid these problems. Ericka and Carl look at how deliberately treating the social media accounts as the valuable property they are, and carefully limiting access and ownership to them, will allow the practice to protect itself and its reputation in the future.

My guests this week are Cindy Muchnick and Jen Curtis. Here is a little bit about each of their backgrounds. Cindy Muchnick is a graduate of Stanford University and has been working in education for the past 25 plus years as a former assistant director of college admission, high school teacher, educational consultant, and author of five other education-related books. She speaks professionally to parents, students, teachers, and business groups on topics around study skills, the adolescent journey, college admission, and now the Parents Compass Movement. Jen Curtis earned a BA from UCLA and an MSW from USC and has been an educational consultant and professional speaker for the past 12 years. As the owner of FutureWise Consulting, she has worked with hundreds of students on every aspect of the college admission process. She's particularly passionate about empowering teens to approach life with intention and educating parents about navigating their parent compass. In this episode, we are talking about preparing kids for life beyond high school, particularly if they're thinking about college or some sort of post-secondary training. But even if they aren't, you are going to get a lot of great tips and ideas around how to support kids in this phase of life. We'll also be answering questions like how can we as parents best prepare our kids for education in life beyond high school? How can we help them strike the balance of realistic but also ambitious goals? And how can we manage ourselves and our feelings so that we're not pushing them into something that might not be the best path for them? Perhaps the most important message here is to start empowering your kids at a young age to speak for themselves, advocate for themselves and express their own individual interests.

Instagram Facebook Drbeurkens.com Parents should STOP doing this … Speak over their kids, answer for their kids, and not let their kids have their own opinions This mostly happens unintentionally Going straight to administrators or teachers, before letting kids advocate for themselves Protecting kids from feeling emotions, disappointments, failures Putting your own interests and opinions for what they “should” be doing first Doing all the planning and organizing Where parents have the opportunity to do better You have the opportunity as the parent of a younger child to be aware of and think about how you want to nurture their independence and individuality It's not too late for any parent to start empowering their children, young adults or even grown adults We have a lot of opportunities in the growing up years to put these things into practice with being aware of how much we're inserting ourselves, versus allowing our kids to have a voice, being aware of how much we might be rescuing in a way that isn't going to lead them well When we don't focus on who the child uniquely is, often we're inserting our own biases into who we want them to be, and it really kind of can get in the way of us parenting authentically Micromanaging your kids Two categories of older kids, young adults who experience micromanaging by their parents or caretaker One is the category who don't need that, but the parents think they do and are doing it anyway, or the parents are doing it out of their own need to be needed Two is the category of young people where parents are continuing to insert themselves and do that because if they didn't, their young adult kids truly don't have the skills to manage and deal with many aspects of their life Parents may need to step back and find ways outside of the higher education environment for their kids to develop life skills so that they can be successful there Basic food skills like cooking, grocery shopping and nutrition Basic financial skills Basic laundry skills Basic skills around organization and planning Social awareness Social skills Alternatives to a 4yr.

Listen on Apple, Google, Spotify, and other platforms. October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. With the pandemic affecting in-person office hours and many employees transitioning to working remotely, companies are feeling overwhelmed with applications and infrastructure related to going digital. A recent Mimecast study shows there has been a 64% increase in cyberthreats in 2019 and 2020. Additionally, emails are a front door to a wide range of attacks, with many uneducated employees clicking on suspicious links and compromising confidential files or information. Jeremy Ventura of Mimecast and Chris Pierdominici of RapidScale share their insight and expertise on how to protect all-digital means of communication. Jeremy is a Senior Security Strategist at Mimecast, an email security platform provider. He listens to the needs of customers and helps them evaluate their security environment, and takes user feedback to the product team. Chris is the Senior Product Marketing Manager at RapidScale, a managed cloud service provider for Cox Business. He works as the bridge between the product team and greater marketplace in content creation. Both are well-versed in different aspects of cybersecurity and tech experience. Jeremy and Chris share the importance of educating company employees with security fundamentals. Cybercriminals are taking advantage of companies transitioning online and lacking security awareness. They recommend providing frequent and regular training to mitigate risk and looking into short/long-term security investments. Mimecast Cybergraph uses pattern recognition to identify email threats, and RapidScale provides extra IT support and expertise in cloud consulting. Listen to Jeremy and Chris as they share their knowledge on cybersecurity, how to improve organizational efforts toward ransomware attacks, and how Mimecast and RapidScale are helping users protect themselves and their work.

Children who have a compromised immune system remain at high risk during the ongoing pandemic if they develop Covid-19. Their parents continue to protect their children from those who no longer wear masks or - in some cases - refuse to get a vaccine. We hear from three mothers, in the US and the UK, who share their hopes and fears for the future. In some US states, mask and vaccination mandates are banned.
