7. Learning from the Top: Women in Tech Leadership
There are more than one million people employed in cybersecurity in the US, yet only a quarter of that workforce are women. The statistics are similar for women in leadership roles: They hold only 23 percent of executive roles, and in the tech industry, that drops to a shocking 19 percent. Technology expert Milena Gacheva and PKWARE President and CRO Tonya Cannady join Spencer Kupferman to talk about their journeys in tech and leadership and how others can use their experience to carve a path to the top.

Over the past few years we’ve also seen a rise in volume of data privacy regulations, which creates additional challenge for international organizations. Harveer Singh, Chief Data Architect and Global Head of Engineering at Western Union joins Spencer Kupferman to discuss the importance of understanding what's behind data privacy initiatives so your customers can be confident with how your business handles their private data.

Data expert Chris Pin joins Spencer Kupferman to talk about the differences in PCI DSS 4.0 and why you're going to want the full two-year prep time for updating your compliance.
2. Protection on the Move: Shifting Cybersecurity to Protect Remote Work
The last two years stretched workforces in many ways, especially with the addition of remote and hybrid workplaces. In all of this, protecting data still remains crucial to business operations. With these work models here to stay, it’s time for organizations to more closely review how they’re managing data as it moves from on-prem to cloud to outside environments. Chief Technology Officer Jason Dobbs joins Spencer Kupferman on this episode to discuss the importance of maintaining consistency and creating a safe environment—for your data, your colleagues, and your company.
3. War on the Cyber Front
