Here at ITSPmagazine, we are always looking for inspiration, muses and revelations. It is what drives us and what usually makes for a good story to tell. For me and Selena, on a sunny Southern California morning, inspiration came in the form of four young students that together make the CyberAegis Aether, an all-girls middle school cybersecurity team from San Diego that is competing in the Cyber Patriot National Finals.
Today’s episode is a special one: We have a fun chat with Mari Galloway, CEO of the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu, to kick off and introduce ITSPmagazine’s strategic partnership with WSC! In this short conversation, we get to know a bit about Mari (she’s a Sr. Security Architect for a large casino in Las Vegas), the organization (a nonprofit dedicated to women in cybersecurity), and why we decided to partner with each other.

A conversation with Dr. Ryan K. Louie, M.D., Ph.D. Psychiatrist
“Psybersecurity” when technology, security and safety cross the boundaries and become an integral part of our perception of human security.
I invite you to listen to this podcast, and to do so I am going to use Ryan’s own words: “As the world of devices and technology becomes increasingly connected with human users, the security of each becomes one and the same.”
In today’s chat, Marco Ciappelli and Sean Martin speak with John Chambers, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, JC2 Ventures, Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Cisco, Mike Fong, Founder and CEO at Privoro, and Vijay Balasubramaniyan, CEO at Pindrop. Together, the group discusses their role during RSA Conference, how corporations can balance security innovation with security operations, and the opportunity and impact new ventures can have on society.
Well, let’s start with something we should all know by now: Cybersecurity is a global issue. How could it be otherwise considering that technology has connected all of us? Literally connected. It is not just a matter of communication between people far away or making distances much shorter; we are talking about connecting all of us in a way that we would not have thought possible a few decades ago.
The decisions we are making today about technology interacting with humans are going to affect our society in 2025 and way beyond that time.
In this podcast we spoke with two experts deeply entrenched in the world of industrial control systems and critical infrastructure. Galina Antova and Emily Miller join Sean Martin and Marco Ciappelli to give us a view of the state of security for this slice of society while connecting the dots to their RSA Conference panel, Why Industrial IoT Security Is Really about Saving Lives.

A conversation with Dr. Luigi Martino | Head of The Center for Cyber Security and International Relations Studies at the Department of Political Science Cesare Alfieri of the University of Florence
Is it still possible to keep addressing cybersecurity only from a technological approach? We both agreed that the answer is clearly NO. It is not only inconvenient and inefficient, but also dangerous.
Welcome to a new episode of ITSPmagazine’s 2019 “Chats on the Road to RSA Conference,” a series of podcasts leading up to the annual conference in San Francisco. Today’s guest is Alicia Jessip, Regional Inclusion & Diversity Manager at TEKsystems and Founder of Denver WIT, who gives us a sneak peek into her Solving Our Cybersecurity Talent Shortage panel, including her unique perspective from working at an IT staffing company, the idea of seeing DE&I as a business investment, and why a cultural change is needed before we can truly become inclusive and diverse.
In this podcast we get to know two fantastic women in the cybersecurity community: a friendly hacker and a lawyer, who also happen to be sisters whose individual careers have inspired one another. We hope that they will inspire many young people to pursue their passion and hopefully a career in InfoSec, as a hacker, as a lawyer, as a psychologist, as a researcher, or whatever their dream may be.
Welcome to a new episode of ITSPmagazine’s 2019 “Chats on the Road to RSA Conference,” a series of podcasts leading up to the annual conference in San Francisco. Today’s guest is Jim Gordon, GM of Security Ecosystem Strategy & Development at Intel, who gives us a sneak peek into his Solving Our Cybersecurity Talent Shortage panels, including his 3 “Be This” rules to D&I success, why this issue is important to him, a white male, and who should attend.

A conversation with Kristin Judge | CEO/President of the Cybercrime Support Network
It seems to me that we have a long way to go before the general population and small businesses become aware of the very likely risk of becoming victims of cybercrime. While there are many things that can be done to reduce the risk — the “100% safe” scenario is a myth — we certainly cannot expect (at this time) that someone or something is going to take those steps for us.
Welcome to a new episode of ITSPmagazine’s 2019 “Chats on the Road to RSA Conference,” a series of podcasts leading up to the annual conference in San Francisco in which we connect with conference organizers, speakers, presenters and panelists. Today’s guest Elaine Marino, CEO of Equili, founder of LadyCoders and co-founder of this seminar, who will give us a sneak peek into what she’ll be bringing to the table in this discussion, how she and Karen Worstell came to create this session for RSA Conference, and who should attend these panels.

A conversation with Sarah Squire Senior Technical Architect at Ping Identity
Times have changed quite a bit since cybersecurity wasn’t even a word. Now it is most definitely a thing, a problem, a cost, and also a value.
The fact that cybersecurity sounds boring and the fact that it is mostly perceived as a cost doesn’t help your chance for success.
But is that true?
On this conversation Selena Templeton will help me dig into a subject that is very dear to Kathleen: the importance of volunteering in the cybersecurity community as an opportunity for learning new technical and non-technical skills that benefit personal growth and support career advancement.
Volunteering is good for the people who do it and for the company that supports it.

Data Privacy Day 2019 Reminds Businesses and Consumers About the Value of Personal Data and the Need to Protect It
In this new era of privacy, the National Cyber Security Alliance will underscore the value of personal information by informing businesses about the critical need to respect consumer privacy and safeguard data.
On today's podcast, we want to share with you what motivated them to present this talk to such a large audience. They/we believe that people are ready to make changes and, as leaders in the space, CISOs need to take the matter into their own hands — starting by helping each other. It’s time to peel back the cover, have these conversations, and collaborate with their peers while being a good role model to their team.
We discuss the consequences of a cyberattack on individuals and families as it goes way beyond the material financial damage, and we wonder if the option of enrolling in cyber insurance protection is going to help increase cyber awareness or make it worse and further numb us all?
In today’s chat, Marco Ciappelli and Sean Martin connect with Patrick Heim, Operating Partner and Chief Information Security Officer for ClearSky ventures and Richard Seiersen, author, startup advisor, and former LendingClub CISO, to learn more about this year’s Innovation Sandbox during RSA Conference 2019.
What is this conversation about?
It is about the World Economic Forum and it is about cybersecurity, which is now officially recognized as one of the top 5 global threats. 140 participants representing about 90 organizations and 25 nations spent two days together discussing how the cybersecurity challenge could be addressed and resolved as a cross-border issue, with no nationality.
Selena Templeton and co-host Marco Ciappelli chat with Whitney Merrill, a privacy and data attorney who also founded the crypto village at DEFCON, about cyberbullying, anonymity and privacy rights. In this inspiring story, Whitney recounts how being cyberbullied in high school, and the frustration of being told by teachers and police that they couldn’t trace the user, led directly to her career in information security, privacy and the law
