  • Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Let's Talk Cybersecurity
    Scott Abel, Tonie Flores, M.K. Palmore, and Keyaan Williams Recorded: Mar 12 2019 62 mins
    All systems have weaknesses – places where a determined attacker has the potential to breach security and either disrupt your organization or steal your data. Defending your organization and its digital assets starts with understanding your vulnerabilities. Therefore, cybersecurity planning must begin with a solid understanding of the places where your systems, processes, and staff are vulnerable to attack.

    The single weakest part of any system is the people who use it. People are vulnerable to a wide range of exploits, including social engineering attacks such as phishing, which attempt to fool people into revealing passwords or other sensitive information, to insider threats, where employees take advantage of their position to breach security. Phishing remains the number one intrusion vector for threat actors.

    Cyberattacks can come from software, hardware, and people. Business professionals must defend against attacks from all of these sources. Although it may seem out of your control, you are not helpless against cyberattacks. There are things you can do to help protect your digital assets.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a discussion about cybersecurity with Toni Flores, editor of “The Language of Cybersecurity," M.K. Palmore, Senior Federal Law Enforcement Executive for the FBI, and cyberdefense specialist, Keyaan Williams of Cyber Leadership and Strategy Solutions, LLC. We’ll discuss the current state of cyber warfare and help you understand a variety of vulnerabilities, exploits, defenses and controls.

Rightfully so—according to CEB, a company of 10,000 employees spends an average of 200 manager hours and $35 million annually on this process, which yields little to no return.

Incorporating the practices of continuous feedback and employee development resources are vital staples in creating a performance management process that will help engage and retain employees.

    Dealing With the Ups and Downs of Life and Business
    Katie Wood Mar 27 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In this webinar, you will learn 6 stages of the marathon of life, the ups and downs and how they relate to life and building a business.

    Life is a roller coaster and we can't control the things that happen to us, but we are in control of the how we RESPOND. The word "responsibility" means our ability to respond to life.

    "Marathon of life" and keeping ONE foot in front of the other (repeat theme)
    What you BELIEVE SHAPES everything about your LIFE.
    With our business- I believe that it ISN’T OUR circumstances that make us UNHAPPY (we all go through hard things).
    It’s our ATTITUDE in our circumstances that really make us unhappy. Attitude is a LITTLE THING- that makes a BIG difference.

    "You are in charge of your own race"
    MILE 1- Expectations (they lead to disappointments- When CHANGING YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES isn’t possible - Change your PERCEPTION/BELIEF about your circumstances. )
    MILE 5- Embrace your blisters (Shift from MOTIVATION to DEDICATION- an attitude of whatever it takes)
    MILE 10- Let it go. (Get rid of ANYTHING that will HOLD YOU BACK. What you resist, persists.)
    MILE 16- Conquer your heartbreak hill (we all hit a wall- it's not here to stop you, but PUSH you further than you would naturally push yourself- this is where you build strength)
    MILE 20- No me without YOU (surrounding yourself with the right people - they will make you bitter or better, chose wisely)
    MILE 26 - (finish line) - never really a finish line- it's about finding the JOY in the journey

    WHEN YOU CONNECT the dots looking back at the marathon- everything was here to help you grow- same goes for life.

    Katie Wood is a thought leader, entrepreneur, and creator of The Jourse, a 5-week online program that helps women increase their self-awareness and kickstart their journey to a more authentic, meaningful life.

    Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:

    "How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"

    There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:

    1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)

    2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?

    3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?


    These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.

    Ask Outrageously! The Secret to Getting What You Really Want
    Linda Swilling, JD, CSP Apr 10 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Do you ask for what you want? Or, do you simply take what you’re offered?

    There is magic in asking. The strongest friendships, top sales teams, and most successful businesses have one thing in common – courageous people who feel the fear and still ask for what they want. People who achieve the best results are people who know how to ask outrageously. In this presentation, Linda Swindling shares tactics and strategies which help people show up powerfully and ask for what they really want. She’ll show how to spot the other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles in order to communicate effectively and create outrageously great outcomes. Team members and their leaders will know how to negotiate the best deals at work and in life with confidence and integrity.

    After attending, participants leave with strategies to:

    Turn negotiations into a conversation instead of a confrontation;
    Show up powerfully and communicate effectively so that others will listen;
    Reach winning results with integrity and confidence;
    Create significant connections with key people and attract support for their ideas;
    Spot other people’s negotiation (DEAL) styles; and
    Make confident decisions and embrace strategic risk taking.
