Show NotesComing soon!
Hello and welcome to data driven.
The podcast where we explore the emerging fields of data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
In this episode, Frank and Andy speak to Dana Mantilia about cybersecurity and why companies are not investing their time and attention where they should be.
This episode was originally recorded on a live stream and this was the first time we had a guest join us on the life stream for a show.
Season 4 just keeps the innovations coming.
Without further ado, here are your hosts Frank Lavigna and Andy Leonard.
Alright, thanks for tuning into data driven. If you're watching this live, thank you for taking time out of your day. I realize this being the lead up to the Holidays. Things are kind of hectic. I know in Chateau Lavigna things are very hectic today.
Andy and I are happy to announce a new guest that we have with us. I first saw her on LinkedIn when she would do these really cool training videos.
On basically security topics.
An with with Black Friday, literally a week from now Cyber Monday and the just the The Creativity alarmingly creative and flexibility of scammers that we've had in light of the kovid, pandemic etc etc.
I figured it would be worth having kind of a good discussion about just the basics of cyber security and why it's important my wife happens to be in the cyber security field, so I'd like to think that I'm better prepared, but I know if you think you're better prepared, that's probably a vulnerability.
So welcome to the show, Dana.
Well, thank you for having me nice to be here.
So this is you are actually the 1st guest. We're going to have on the show that we interviewed live on a live stream first on video.
Very honored, very.
Honored so awesome. We're trying to push the boundaries for season four, so tell us a little bit about you and your company for those that haven't seen your videos on LinkedIn.
OK sure yeah. My name is Dana Mantilia an I am the founder of identity Protection Planning an we tried to help educate people in very layman's terms on how they can protect themselves from identity thieves and cybercriminals. And so we have a variety of different kinds of training. Either you know, training data, webinars, some videos or we have an on line.
Platform that's short little videos that everyone is required to watch.
And just to kind of start spreading the word, I mean cybersecurity is not going away and unfortunately the the frontline workers are the people that really are maybe not educated on it and they also are the ones that are clicking on things they shouldn't be clicking on so.
No, so that's a good point. So one of your most recent videos, and this is the one that made me think we should have her on the show.
Was the one the gift card scam and how?
Somebody in your organization got snared up in this.
Yeah, I mean it's.
It's crazy, I mean that the way that I did that little video is how exactly how it happened. She came to my office door with her codon and I said, well, why do you have your code on and she said, oh I'm going to get that stuff you need and I said well, what stuff are you talking about? And she said this stuff, we were just messaging back and forth about. I said I was. I've
