Your journey into media is intriguing. What motivated you to enter the media industry, and how has your experience in this field influenced your perspective on women’s representation in media?

V. Venesulia: My entry into media came in part as a result of my duty to help get critical messages to the public regarding cybersecurity, information security, and fraud mitigation. The opportunity presented itself at the right time, and I considered it part of my service to the nation to do so. It has been a joy and a privilege to share knowledge on a national and international level.

The transition into journalism was a natural one. As a consultant, I research information and provide credible sources to my client base while maintaining an objective and unbiased standpoint. The same principles apply to journalism, and I bring the same integrity to it. I have used my production company, Vicar Group Omnimedia, and my television show Down to Business with V. as a source of good in the world. My Newsmax Insider column, InfoSector with V. Venesulia, is a perfect and welcomed opportunity to amplify messages that matter and to inform and protect the public. It has indeed been a labor of love.

Reflecting on your role as a media personality, how do you strive to amplify the voices of women and minorities in your show, creating a platform for diverse perspectives and stories to be heard?

V. Venesulia: Being mission-focused is very important to me, and I keep that mission at the center of my focus. As I go about my activities, I keep why my media pursuits exist at the center. Why am I doing this? Why does this tv show and production company exist? What is the purpose of this column? What is the mission?

The mission is to sound the alarm and issue critical warnings surrounding technology to the public about how malicious actors are attempting to malign and defraud them using it. The mission is to share actionable information to protect ourselves and give people hope and empowerment in the process. The mission is to highlight how we can leverage technology to our benefit while bringing a word of warning as we enjoy the benefits.

The mission is also to partner with insight into the possibilities and perils of technological advances we face and how malicious actors use them to attack and exploit individuals, families, businesses, and our government. The mission is to get a message out about the threat to humankind and how the existential crisis we face in this digital age will impact us all. I keep that mission at the center of my focus.

Down to Business with V” has gained attention. What do you enjoy most about hosting this impactful show the past three seasons?

V. Venesulia: I’m enjoying seeing the vehicle of Down to Business with V. bring a message of warning as well as hope to viewers. It has been a great joy to see it gain traction and make an impact using the power of media. Informing the public of the attacks that fraudsters are using to exploit them with the hope that they can avoid falling prey is huge. I also enjoyed the opportunity to encourage entrepreneurs on their journeys this season.

We are on track and on target with what we set out to do, and I’m excited to see what the future holds.

Can you share any memorable moments or impactful interviews from “Down to Business with V” that have resonated with you and your audience, reinforcing the show’s commitment to meaningful discussions?

V. Venesulia: I’ve enjoyed the insight each of our guests brought to our audience and had huge take-aways from each. The conversation with Dr. Kevin Alejandro Roundy regarding the concept of Stalkerware is a monumental, memorable moment. In the episode, “Stalkerware: Protecting Your Privacy,” Dr. Roundy shares how Stalkerware was used in domestic situations to stalk and intimidate, as well as resources for victims and their families. It validated victims who might be in that situation and provided them with tools for their escape.

In an episode on social engineering, Mr. Anthony Pinto of UWF’s Center for Cybersecurity explained how malicious actors use social media to discredit victims. We often think about the concept of social engineering to defraud for financial gain, however, Mr. Pinto stated that the motives could extend beyond that.

A highlight from this season was when Daniel Gorlovetsky, CEO of TLVTech, gave the 9-Minute Masterclass on Funding. During his appearances, he encouraged founders, entrepreneurs, and solopreneurs in their journey and taught them how to handle “The Hard Part of Being an Entrepreneur.” His appearance encouraged our viewers, and we received excellent feedback from the audience.

What can we be on the lookout for in season 4?

V. Venesulia: Season 4 will be be infused with more insights on cutting edge trends on the tech, cyber, and fraud landscape. By popular demand, we’ll also be weaving in more of the business advice that our audience loved so much in this season. We’re excited about the lineup and looking forward to filming.

As a columnist for NewsMax, what topics have you found most compelling to write about, and how do you approach discussing important issues, particularly those related to technology, cybersecurity, and business?

V. Venesulia: Artificial intelligence and the dangers of deepfakes have been a big focus in my articles in my Newsmax Insider column, Infosector with V. Venesulia. In June of 2023, The FBI released a public service announcement warning that deep fake technology is being used to create explicit content which is being spread on the internet. Once the content is released, recalling or taking it down is more complicated. In my article “Lawmakers Must Rush to Protect Us from Deepfakes,” I outlined that this explicit content was not only being made of celebrities and politicians, but of everyday citizens.

In recent weeks, we have seen this demeaning activity affect Taylor Swift and several school-age girls. In all instances, there was very little legal protection for the victims. This is one of the places where legislation will be essential to protect us all from this type of malicious activity.
