E042: Kavya Pearlman

#10QPresents:

Kavya was such a delight to converse with the day we recorded. We talked about how going through Ramadan during a quarantine has been. She also told a story about having her first hamburger. The open and honest conversation touched my soul. We also talked about her work with virtual reality, as well as discuss if businesses are finally seeing the benefits of not maintaining offices.

#115 Kavya Pearlman — Founder & CEO, XR Safety Initiative

UberKnowledge

Have our Privacy Gains Gone? Kayva Pearlman, XR Safety Initiative’s Founder and CEO, joins our host, Ashwin Krishnan, on this podcast to share her concern that we may be losing our hard-won data privacy protection. We are currently seeing privacy regulations relaxed. While we mustn’t let data privacy impede the fight against COVID-19, we must be cognizant of the ramifications. Kavya explains, “after this passes, the data destruction clause has to be there.” For small to medium businesses or small teams working in response to COVID-19 who lack privacy protection resources, XRSI are offering free privacy reviews. Reach out to them via their website. 03:20 — This crisis has shown us two types of leadership. Those leading with FUD and those leading with compassion. 08:09 — Right now we are seeing a relaxation of privacy regulations. 09:47 — This is not just about data privacy protection, so much more is at stake. 10:46 — Some of the largest companies are partnering with WHO hoping software can solve the COVID-19 problem. 12:53 — Cybersecurity is more important than ever. The recent layoffs are due to budget not lack of need. 16:16 — If you are working in response to COVID-19, please pay attention to privacy. The website reporting hiring freezes mentioned by Kavya in the podcast can be found at https://candor.co/hiring-freezes. The CyberSN blog by Deidre Diamond can be found at www.cybersn.com/blog/.

Who is Going to Protect the Brave New Virtual Worlds and HOW? - Kavya Pearlman - PSW #633

Paul's Security Weekly TV

Emerging technologies such as Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality are inevitably gaining momentum and helping businesses gain competitive advantage. These technological advancements are giving rise to digital transformation as well as digital risks. The bigger question is who will protect these technologies. While the world is catching up on the business aspects and the real use cases, Silicon Valley startups are already gearing up to combat the risks born alongside emerging tech's benefits. The Valley companies are utilizing the same technologies to combat the associated risks. My Quest to protect these Brave New Virtual Worlds has taken me around the world and connected me to the geniuses at Wallarm. In this segment, I will talk about WHY I believe Wallarm, XRSI and companies alike are the ones moving fast to protect the Immersive Technologies.
