Description

App, User, and Data, but it’s all about the data! Discovering and classifying data to protect it is tough. What if you can protect all of your data?

Jeff Capone, CEO and Co-founder at SecureCircle, joins us to discuss how to protect all of your data and stop asking “Where’s your data?”. If we can protect everything, who cares where it is, as you continue to maintain control!

  1. Jamming with Jason – Your Title Doesn’t Make You a Leader – We’ve all worked with horrible bosses who didn’t use Intuitive Leadership, Neural Influence, or Mental Mastery … and it’s HARD to be a leader without them, and painful for the people you work with if you don’t. Technical skills and a fancy title, doesn’t make you a good leader. In fact, you may be a horrible boss and not even realize it.
  2. 3 Steps CISOs Can Take to Convey Strategy for Budget Presentations – As 2020 nears its end, CISOs and infosec teams are expected to prepare board and C-suite briefings on the state of their organization’s cybersecurity posture, including a comprehensive 2021 cybersecurity budget. How can CISOs present a unified and strategic vision for 2021?

    Step One: Gain an Understanding of the Organization’s Cybersecurity Posture
    Step Two: Build a Board Presentation with the following slides:
    Slide No. 1: Where are we on the cyber-risk spectrum?
    Slide No. 2: Quantify cyber-risks across the business.
    Slide No. 3: Show progress with risk trends.
    Slide No. 4: Where do we want to be?
    Slide No. 5: How will we get there? Lay out a plan.
    Step Three: Develop a 2021 Budget

  3. The New Nine to Five: How Traditional Hours Are Holding Your Business Back – According to Cisco’s Connected World Technology Final Report, “two-thirds of Gen X, Gen Y and HR professionals believe that an organization that has adopted a flexible, mobile and remote work model has a competitive advantage over one that requires employees to be in the office from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every weekday.” Here are the eight ways non-traditional hours benefit businesses:

    1. Higher productivity
    2. Emotionally healthy
    3. Better efficiency
    4. More dedicated
    5. More Disciplined
    6. Better time management
    7. Being independent
    8. More reliable

  4. Building a Better Workplace Starts with Saying “Thanks” – It can feel like there’s little to be grateful for these days. Many of us are stressed about our health, our finances, and our jobs and these worries can create a vicious downward spiral, impacting our physical and mental health, hurting our performance at work, and straining our relationships. When we lose sight of the positive and focus on the negative, we’re more likely treat our colleagues poorly; we might insult them, talk about them behind their backs, and ignore or exclude them.

    Research on positive psychology reveals it lifts people up, specifically using gratitude. Managers should address the complex problem of workplace mistreatment more broadly, more holistically, by cultivating a culture of gratitude. How? Here are a few science-backed suggestions:

    1. Leaders should serve as role models.
    2. Make time and space for gratitude.
    3. Allow employees to interact with beneficiaries.

    The bottom line: Managers should emphasize the importance of expressing thanks and appreciation at work. Cultivating a culture of gratitude won’t just boost employees’ well-being and performance. According to our research, it’ll also help stop workplace mistreatment.

  5. Data safes will give users control over their data – People need to regain control of their own data, instead of it being in the hands of the tech giants, according to Belgian professor of computer science Ruben Verborgh, who is working with World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee on Solid, a set of standards for personal “digital data safes” to be set up.
  6. Video call fatigue is setting in, Robert Half finds – While an overload of meetings is a known workplace problem, the pandemic has exacerbated the issue with organizations conducting most meetings virtually, according to Robert Half’s findings.

    While many are still working remotely, organizations may not need every meeting in a virtual format. Instead, different, shorter meetings could offer a replacement, according to Robert Half.
