#115 – Alyssa Miller: We Are Lacking Empathy
https://www.linkedin.com/in/alyssam-infosec/ (Alyssa Miller) leads the security strategy for https://www.spglobal.com/ratings/en/ (S&P Global Ratings) as Business Information Security Officer (BISO), connecting corporate security objectives to business initiatives. She blends a unique mix of technical expertise and executive presence to bridge the gap that can often form between security practitioners and business leaders. Her goal is to change how we look at the security of our interconnected way of life and focus attention on defending privacy and cultivating trust. A native of Milwaukee, Alyssa began her IT career as a programmer for a Wisconsin-based financial software provider. Her security passion quickly shaped her career as she moved into a leadership role within the ethical hacking team, conducting penetration testing and application assessments along with her team. As a hacker, Alyssa has a passion for security that she evangelizes to business leaders and industry audiences through her work as a cybersecurity professional and through her various public speaking engagements. When not engaged in security research and advocacy, she is also an accomplished soccer referee, guitarist, and photographer. In this episode, we discuss why she misses conferences, starting with computers at an early age, diversity, equity, and inclusion, the discrimination she has faced, the lack of understanding of privilege, discriminatory hiring practices, how to be an ally, and so much more!

We Are Here Finale: Rep. Yvette Clarke
Hacker Valley Studio presents: We Are Here - an audio journey and series exploring black excellence in technology and cybersecurity. In part three of this series, Ron and Chris interview Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, serving as the U.S. Representative for New York's 9th congressional district since 2013. Congresswoman Clarke’s parents immigrated to Brooklyn, New York in the 1950s from Jamaica. Being born from immigrant parents and witnessing the transformation of the country during the civil rights movement helped shape her worldview. Congresswoman Clarke mentions that the nurture from her family and community sparked her interest in public service at an early age. Congresswoman Clarke recalls being a child and looking up to her pediatrician, Dr. Thompson. Congresswoman Clarke could see herself being like Dr. Thompson and that led her to pursue her interests in STEM in grade school and college. When Congresswoman Clarke went away to college she made a commitment to come back to Brooklyn and use her education to help others As the episode progresses, Congresswoman Clarke mentions her parents were engaged in the community out of necessity. They wanted to be able to navigate the United States and create community for her and her brother. Congresswoman Clarke’s mother started her community outreach at Parent Teacher Association meetings and was encouraged to run for political office after some time. In fact, Congresswoman Clarke became the first and only child to succeed a parent in political office. Congresswoman Clarke describes community as essential and building communities is done through education. Digital transformation has enabled all generations to collaborate on common causes that they previously wouldn’t have had the opportunity to. An example that Congresswoman Clarke provides is narrowing the education gap for children of color. Through technology, parents have been working with government agencies and private organizations to provide more resources to schools in need.
