PVCSec Welcomes Requests

Dear Friends,

We here at PVC Security, the site and podcast, take requests.

Sure, you can ask us to cover a topic in which you’re interested. We are open to requests for us to come to your event to speak and/or podcast.

More exciting, you can ask Ed & Paul sing a particular song to open or close a podcast! How awesome is that?

Email us your requests at [email protected] or tweet them to @pvcsec with the hashtag #singpvcsec. The boys will do their best, and by their best we of course mean that they probably mean well when they sing.

Share & Enjoy!

PVCSec Episode 15: The Interview and You, Part Deux

Dear Friends,

The next episode of the PVC Security Podcast, number fifteen in a collector’s series, is upon you!

The boys wrap up their “Interview and You” in this two-part former mythical unicorn (as opposed to the non-mythical variety) series with the teased bit about how to conduct an interview.

Plus: quick hits and updates, such as:

  • Purging is good for Security health
  • The ethics of Google Hacking organizations other than your own
  • Retail “savings” cards and privacy

Remember, this isn’t your typical InfoSec podcast. This also isn’t your typical management and leadership podcast. This is the PVC Security Podcast.

Share & Enjoy!

Show Notes:

  • Suggestion for Interviewing Technical Hires from TaoSecurity
  • If I Hire You, What’s Your 100-Day Plan? from the New York Times
  • The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing (Amazon affiliate link). In the context of Paul’s comment, replace “joy” with “value”.
  • PVC Security Podcast is looking for you, yes YOU, to give us suggestions and recommendations for songs for the show. Email us at [email protected] or tweet @pvcsec your request and hashtag #singpvcsec.

PVCSec Episode 14: The Interview and You, Part 1

Dear Friends,

The next episode of the PVC Security Podcast, number fourteen in a collector’s series, is upon you!

Ed & Paul go on and on and on about interviews from both sides of the table – interviewer and interviewee. They went on so long that the part about “how to interview” is the new Part 2 of this podcast series. So Your Mileage Will Vary compared to the intro to this entry.

Regardless, they talk about being interviewed:

  • Self evaluation
  • Research
  • Study & Prepare
  • What to do the Day of the Interview
  • and the Interview

Plus: quick hits and updates, such as:

  • the Value of Ethical Hacking/Penetration Testing
  • Fog Computing teaser
  • Mobile Outlook may be hazardous to your enterprise

Remember, this isn’t your typical InfoSec podcast. This also isn’t your typical management and leadership podcast. This is the PVC Security Podcast.

Remember, this isn’t your typical InfoSec podcast. This also isn’t your typical management and leadership podcast. This is the PVC Security Podcast.
