The Encrypted Economy podcast explores the business, laws, regulation, and security relating to our most valuable digital data, whether that’s a financial asset itself, proprietary data or personally identifiable information. To recognize value from this data, we have to encrypt it and thus, encryption is an enabling technology that permits efficiencies and business models to be built around it. Encryption is the underpinning to why we are able to transfer and process sensitive data, personal information and digital assets.

I’ve been writing blogs for almost a decade, initially relating to financial regulation and risk management, then shifting more to cyber security after founding Helical.
The Encrypted Economy allows me to engage firsthand with the people who are the doers or who have a unique expertise or perspective. I want to learn from them and to help my audience learn from them. There is something very exciting about engaging with the subject matter experts to talk firsthand about the topics that I would otherwise be writing a blog about. My mission is to peel back the layers of the encrypted economy and focus on its component parts, as well as how all these parts are influencing one another.

Mostly discussions with really interesting people who bring insight and perspective to the show’s focus. I will be switching it up occasionally by either doing a show either by myself or with a co-host. When that happens, I might be doing a deeper dive on a current development or a topic from an earlier show. With all that said, I am doing it for the audience, so PLEASE give me feedback. If you want to hear more on a particular area or want to shape what we are discussing, then let me know. Go for it!

The Encrypted Economy will be a weekly podcast. It is going to be available on any podcast streaming app and YouTube.
