Hi connie so nice to see you again getting too so we were talking yesterday and hot topics about valerie. Bertinelli who is fighting back against these twitter troll to fry who shamed for gaining weight and she was so upset about it. You know you've played strong. Female characters urine shows like friday night. Lights and nashville. And you say that you've made it your goal to counteract what women are supposed to look like onscreen that is not easy to do and show business. The maintenance of a skinny body seems absolutely on top of the list. So how are you doing this. Well you know. I just i i feel like my migrate joy and the opportunity that i've had over the years is to Depict women in very authentic ways close to the way we really are as as i ran depending on what the role is and as i personally get older as we all do i you know i'm feeling the effects of that. I'm doing it in front of the camera. You know. I have all of the impact of hollywood and you know the social media thing that i try to stay away from as much as possible but you know i just feel like if i can continue to convey the idea that we are are authentic solves our most beautiful selves And whatever that looks like and the more we can do to explore what that is each of us individually as women. The more powerful and i think the happier will be and and a lot of that has to do with walking out all that Outside noise because the outside noise takes away from what are true voices so you know. I just keep trying to do that and yeah it's not easy. You know i keep. I keep having people's lately are always you know what i love about you. I love that you're not doing anything to your face like i. That's a compliment. i loved. I love that you just letting yourself age. That is just a messing could free. And i'm like yeah thank you. I think at world needs to stop acting like women. Aging is an act of bravery. It's just what happens. But i think it's so toxic that people talk that way to women. But that's just me i your new movie joe. Belva do by the way they do it our whole lives. It just takes different forms depending on what iru decade. You're in also your one most beautiful woman in the world so people were saying that crap. Do you imagine what the rest of us feel like. I mean anyway. I talked to you about this whole show but we have to promote movie which is amazing. Your new movie joe. Bell is based on the true story. Of an oregon. Dad played by mark. Wahlberg who walks across the country to raise awareness about bullying after fifteen year. Old son jayden who was gay. Commit suicide you say that. The film teaches us how to be better allies house. Oh and how did you approach playing jason's mom lola. Well what i love about this film is that it's it's really it's it's really about redemption and what the film shows is people who have genuine misunderstanding about their own son and the fact that he's gay and is due and the community doesn't accept him and his and he is bullied and even his own father doesn't understand and what so we get to go on that journey in the film and watch through. His father's is joe. Bell played like by mark wahlberg. We get to watch him. Start to understand and discover and educate himself and not be afraid of who his son was. Authentically and i think by audiences being able to see that and experience it on this beautiful journey and the storytelling in this film. My hope is that we will open a lot of people's eyes and create a lot more understanding for people who just don't know any better opening their eyes and hopefully their hearts as well Thank you for doing this film because this telling these stories is so important. Because they're kids like that across this country that are watching right now But you're also starring in a new. Hbo limited series called the white lotus a social satire about the darker side of a group of wealthy vacationers in staff at a tropical resort. Now shot this series in hawaii during the pandemic which is not the worst place in the world to be holed up. What was that light. Well it was. I mean it was. It was fantastic and we felt a little bit while a lot sort of spoiled slash guilty because it was really right in the midst of the pandemic and really everybody had been locked down. We had all been live down and and in fact in maui at the four seasons which is where we were. We were also locked down so if there was ever an opportunity for the four seasons in maui to be to be locked out on that was it but it was just so beautiful and Rebel really fortunate and The cast really bonded and The scripts are fantastic. Mike white wrote and directed it and he's just an incredible voice and a very astute observer of human behavior. And so i think i think audiences are really gonna love the show. It's funny it's biting. it's jarring. It's a little too recognizable Yeah it's fun but the show is actually great. I've watched it. And it's it's all those things i to ask you this. You know this past year was a difficult one for a lot of people not only because of the pandemic of course but because of the racial reckoning going on in our country you are a single mom adopting you adopted your son from ethiopia ten years ago. What has your experience been raising black sun during this time. And what kinds of conversations have you been having with him. Well it's been Complicated and As if it.

We tried to poke around here. Here's a report. good luck. we'll see in year. That does you. No good of course trusted partner for kariba. That's the reason why is because we really thoughtfully go about these and we work with them very closely. So when they're doing red team exercise it's interesting. It's like a cat and mouse game. We can see a lot of things that are going on. And some of the senior management personnel kind of let those activities happen to see how the security staff reacts how people react until see you know. Really where are the problem areas and we target this to specific parts. You realize that you know we have so we have swift infrastructure continually hardin that truck all of the time. It's very important to us. And also we have multi cloud hybrid cloud type of capabilities. We have some that are private Colocation data center cloud we have some that are infrastructure as a service public type of cloud and so really we try to figure out. Are there any weaknesses or deficiencies in these in that hybrid cloud environment or to specifically like let's swift or other particular areas and so we it's very important to us. What man does is super important because we get that visibility. The manner red team testers are very skilled. They do a lot of these things that we see attackers. It's very similar that that they do. And they use these same techniques and it's super important because then we learned from it and we figure out what where we need to focus on. Yeah you know. I came to mandate from the acquisition of verden and over the last couple years. I've really got a chance to work closely with the red team folks in the purple team folks and what they do and the incident responders and how they leverage the sort of the mandy threat intelligence as well it. All kinda comes in comes into play and i think you know mandate response Is just such a core piece of that equation makes for very nice holistic story of intel and services and platform based solutions.

It's much better than using spreadsheets of course A lot of the biggest companies know about kariba kariba has been around for twenty years started in paris and then has really grown since probably two thousand ten two thousand twelve but really exponentially grown in about the last four years or so. So i've been with kariba for three years before that i was with. Hp for nineteen years with ibm for a few years and my most recent endeavors in both of those companies was with federal cloud and Getting federal cloud service capabilities through federal authorization. There's a program called fed ramp which is really great program and it uses the nist eight hundred fifty three rule set and applies that to cloud so that way it allows government to use cloud services. But what's even better about that. Is that same rule. Set can be applied to any basic cloud system There's very good governance. Parameter is controls. It goes through rigorous audit and then something called continuous monitoring which you have to ensure that you are completing these deliverables at a schedule at a cadence and then attesting to these so I'm basically applying those same principles to kariba and we've just got through our iso twenty seven zero zero one audit which is huge. It's first time for kariba In addition we have sought one two and we have swift audits to swift is the back end payments infrastructure that as crib as cloud company where that middle part where instead of companies going on premise to swift. They're coming through our cloud architecture and then were we have swift on the back end. So it's a super critical super important financial system. And that's that's my job is to ensure that it is secure. Yeah and i'm guessing there's spreadsheet or crazy whiteboard where you're mapping nist eight hundred fifty three in swift and maybe headed ninety two and everything else together to say check. Which ones do we hit. Right i mean. Because i know there's some overlap with those but there's also some standout points right there are and that's a really important point because on the internet there's a lot of these crosswalks to compliance controls in so it's interesting though customer. Summer apples to oranges comparisons. And if you're looking to meet all of those you have to look at that and it's like vin diagram of these circles that are overlapping with the same type of question. But you have to ensure you're you're answering for that complaints correctly and so there's also overlaps so there's a lot of these common ones like pci Nist eyeso- Prescriptive type of controls with an iso All of these and they have a lot of same basic ones like encryption accounts management all of those but then there's a lot of other things that they're very concerned about so you have to understand those and make sure that with an auditor and also even beyond auditing that. You're doing it properly and that you're really putting a lot of thought into it based on your what your business is. That's a really important phrase there that you had at the end because it's not just about placating the auditor checking that box. You actually you wanna do it in do it right. You just don't want to fill fill in the blank right for grade so i know there's always been that discussion. Compliance doesn't equal security. Security doesn't equal compliance. But if you actually put the effort to do your regulatory mandates securely in follow best practices he you are killing two birds with one stone But if your goal is just to make bill.

As is absolutely fascinating. It's clearly a distinction from some of the candidates in the race lake controller. Scott stringer and others who are running further to the left. He's not trying to win over the democratic socialists of america. Or even the working families party He's not trying to win over a lot of the sort of upper westside or brownstone brooklyn White progresses. i don't think although maybe some But he's really trying to appeal to the rest of the democratic electorate. Ahmed isn't sort of more in the left lane. And i think this pitch of public safety but making the police department run better More in a more just fashion not violating people's rights etc but but better public safety better management. The police department quality of life concerns not being an antagonist real estate working with real estate on development. you know being pro business. The this is eric adams pitched at he can manage the government in and take it with a you know a moderate but progressive i towards the future. It's an interesting pitch. I'm curious as to where you know. The sort of Base of support is and how he rallies people who you know. Kind of like that idea but aren't often so motivated to be the sort of fervent political activist. Based on that type of pitch. I think will be very interesting yet. I think we're the crux is where we're management ends and vision begins. And what do you think about dysfunction. That could be a question of you. Know our is dotted other forms filed on time or the overall failing of a system to serve. Its people and i think talking about schools are a perfect example.

What you just stated was that. Eric come with a lot because i have I have gone through a lot. really think about. It have been some dark moments. Like many new yorkers. And i had to as i said in my introductory video ahead to turn those dark moments from burials to plantains of a dog moment being arrested as a child and beat by police the symbols of authority of but instead of saying whoa is me i say why not me and i became a police officer a sergeant lieutenant captain of the dog moment of dealing with economic challenges as a child with mom trying to raise a six children but she showed us the leadership that we needed to oppress through as so i think the best way to define who i am on the person that has gone through a lot and i want to use my skills my abilities. Those evolutions to help people who are going through a lot neocons are going to a right now. And i'm a blue-collar mayor of said this over and over again I'm a person that understands a what every day new york is going through. I don't have to do a listening tour. I've been listening to new yorkers for thirty five plus years But i'm in a unique place because i know that i'll cities dysfunctional and we create the crisis many of the issues. We are facing of the crisis that we are facing are self inflicted of we are an efficient and the inefficiencies are lead into the inequities and they give way to the injustices that we see. And i know from what. I learned in the police department as a computer programmer. Caught of the first system that was put into use that to analyze how to properly police al city that was a pivotal moment in our city with every agency should have followed the real time governance model and we were still in the eighteenth century as we are moving into the twenty first century and lead that. That is what we need to do to run the city and inefficient way utilize our resources the correct way and utilize all the experiences. I have had to do so. And i think that's the uniqueness that i can bring to a running for man and let's be clear i'm not running for a position on the team so there people who point out of that. They're good at a position on the baseball team. Yes some folks are good first base. Second base outfielder. I'm running to assemble a team.

Its effect on campaigning. What that will be like. You know assuming that we go through most of the winter and perhaps much of the spring without a vaccine without being able to relax social distancing the fact we have ranked choice voting for the first time occurring in the primary makes it really really fascinating people able to designate their second third fourth and so on choices and those will affect who ultimately wins and the money side is is fascinating too. You know that used to be a barrier for some candidates in certainly a reason to drop out but the fact that you have this much more generous match a two one match by the campaign finance board. We'll probably keep a few people in the race longer than they. Otherwise might so. We have a very crowded field now and it might not window that much by the time we get to. You know major debates and really making their choices. Newspapers baking endorsements. That'll be really interesting to watch. Listen we you know. We had something fairly similar in two thousand thirteen. You had a big field you know even that field though was people who'd been in elected mostly people who'd been in elected office Were the officer had been elected office. You know this field is is fascinating because you only have a few elect currently elected officials or even people who've ever been elected officials and you know it's there's a pitch coming from a variety of candidates about being an outsider being non traditional candidate people with lots of interesting experience but not as an elected official not in government. That's for voters to make up their minds. Obviously but it just a fascinating field and to your point you know. We saw some of this in two thousand thirteen where you had some of the official debates with. I don't know seven eight nine candidates and that makes that makes it additionally tough to for people to really get a sense of the differences who people are. You know we've seen that with them. you know. The republican presidential primary field in two thousand sixteen the democratic field. This year where you know is it was challenging sometimes with so many candidates. And that's where people again you know. Hopefully are listening to interviews like this with eric adams and a lot of other things reading up on the candidates to get You know a good a good feel for who's in the race and you know this.

Yeah typical journey. you know nothing complicated about Eric Adams just say a young man that grew up to go into law enforcement. I served twenty two years as a police officer of rose to the rank of captain. Went to school at night to obtain my associate's my bachelor's master's degree to classes at a time my son was born and I went down to one class a blue collar worker. That really of moved to life and had a blue-collar health crises because of of the read write white and blue diets of how as Americans. Now, our diet really impacts across the glow and so after leaving law enforcement became a state Senator and then a Brooklyn borough president that's equivalent to what many places would no as county executive.

This is true in the marriage girl. Over Claire Yes. Are we on your end? We're good great well. So as New Yorkers where the epicenter of what's going on right now which is really intense especially for people who are like and raised here and today I wanted to talk a bit about how pandemics often expose these underlying issues within societies and how certain people are cared for while others are ignored. You know specifically now. We're seeing that this really disproportionately affecting black and brown communities. So I wanted to talk a bit about how we can use this moment to sort of like I feel like there's a magnifying glass on these issues right now and it's a good time to address them and hopefully shift towards a better society. I you know we should. We should this. Situation is like an onion and we should pill back each layer to get a full understanding. If you don't you'll miss it The thing we should Examined my belief is that we had a place right now and any major crises. You are in the a search and recovery fakes Phases that you're saying that there are still bodies alive and we need to find them. The recovery is that you're going to go in and get those dead bodies and just make sure they have a dignified burial and I don't want to look at the corona virus crisis that we have shifted to the recovery phase. We're still in the phase. We can still say bodies. We have to stop doing the things that we did. Which is we ignored black and Brown people in this city in this city. We divided the city into two categories. And when we did it I said to my staff that's coded language that we use in right now. When we said essential employees go out nonessential employees stay home. We basically said the essential employees over seventy percent of the essential employees are black and brown people and overwhelming number of immigrants. So those who were nonessential they were able to stay home and run. The city do their laptops and listened to their children. Call around on the floor and they were able to be a safe zone. That in itself was wrong. But let's take you to more steps. The second step is that we told the essential employees that you are supposed to go your job without any protective equipment with the full understanding. That people should be sheltered in place. You're not shelter in place with the full understanding that you should have six foot difference. You're not doing six difference. We're going to send you out there to make sure our abruptly on shelves when we call each you showa when it's time to drive trains and buses. You're going to be there so we're going to have you folks run our city while we and I'll save the HABE. Now here's the real dangerous part of its. You heard all the time the reason we couldn't give to nurses who are predominately black and Hispanic and Caribbean we couldn't we couldn't get a PP's personal protective equipment to all of the other essential employees because we didn't have enough that is the biggest lie that we bought and we started keep talking about. There's a global supply out there and we gave the city and state countless number of distributors. That has had reached out to us. And say hey. These cats never called us back able to get thousands upon thousands of donated personal protection equipment. I'm donating equipment to my hospitals. I'm donated to ACS employee school crossing guards. Correction officials. A nurse's why am I able to get it? And they're unable to purchase it on the largest large scale. The urgency was never us? There was never planned. I want you to go back and look at the brief instrument. Everyone there was never a plan. You have to fight this virus on two fronts. You have to fight it as it intervention for those who have it you have to intercede and assist them and then you have to fight it. As pregnancy there was never a prevention plan we never which communities that had lodged a preexisting conditions. And say his plan so that you won't be Sade. We want testing it out communities we were telling our mothers and grandmothers. Okay you know what go back home. They went back home and many of them died. We would not providing the food to them. We would not using telemedicine so there was no plan for the seventy percent is so that close. We got corona virus. He went home to an overcrowded apartment with his children and families in his grandmother because remember folks are living in three or four generations and he let them. They went to the hospitals. Like in Queens. Will you have a high immigrant? Community Sunset Park High Immigrant community a Central Brooklyn high immigrant community all of these essential employees infected. Their family members were not diagnosed. So they can cortina themselves because we were not tested. Remember we put out an order. That said we only gonNA test you. You emit if you're admitted to the hospital and then we didn't admit you to the hospital we sent you home. It was. This was the greatest experiment on black and Brown people sister to ski experiment. Yeah this is so fucked up. It's really really insane. And you recently wrote an op Ed.
