His PVCSec life began in Ferndale MI in August of 2014 when he asked @edgarr0jas about starting a podcast & @timothydeblock offered to produce said podcast. He's done the show from Detroit, Tokyo, Mexico City, Chattanooga, Amsterdam, Ed's place, Brussels, Nashville, and maybe somewhere else.

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.

Share & Enjoy!

Ep 11 Dilemma

The incomparable Jimmy Vo joined us for an episode we recorded the week of 05 Jan 2015.

It wasn’t very good, and that is entirely my fault. I enjoyed a few too many adult beverages before we recorded. As a result it was arguably the least valuable episode from a content and a recording quality perspective.

Jimmy was game and a great guest. Ed performed yeoman’s service keeping the episode on track. Tim took a scalpel to the recorded audio to make it suck less.

Here’s the dilemma – do we release the episode anyway, warts & all, or /dev/null it and start again?

Thoughts?

PVC Security Episode 10 – New Year’s Eve

Dear Friends,

Welcome to episode 10 of the PVC Security podcast, yet another in a collector’s series. Ed & Paul talk about some highlights regarding what we learned in 2014. This is an impromptu mini episode, or mini-sode, recording to get one more in before the New Year.

Share & Enjoy!

Thank You 2014!

Dear Friends,

PVC Security’s 2014 review must begin thusly:

We began. Paul had an idea he tweeted to Ed. Ed agreed. Tim volunteered to help.
 
And thus a podcast, without question the greatest podcast human kind has ever produced or experienced about leadership and security and poorly sang TV theme songs made by a guy in Tennessee, a guy in Carolina (South), and a guy in Detroit, was born.
 
It is safe to say that we’re still figuring things out. We’ve had gaps in our schedule. Ed has a potty mouth. We’ve had guests. We talked about leadership and security and a lot of things. We sang. We apologized for our singing. Tim failed to answer the most basic of baseball questions. We kept going.
 
Most importantly, we had fun.
 
We want people to listen, enjoy, and maybe learn from the podcast. But that is not why we do it. We do the podcast for ourselves. If we enjoy recording it, if we enjoy listening to it, and if we’re proud of it – then we’re going to keep doing it.
 
That is both a threat and a promise. Your mileage may vary.
 
We want to thank Bob Rudis and Alex Pinto for joining us on two and one episodes, respectively. Thanks to our prospective guests who’s schedules delayed their participation.
 
And thanks to you, the listener!
 
Happy 2015, Dear Friends!

Dear Friends, Merry Christmas!

Dear Friends,

Happy (post-) Hanukah and Merry (current-) Christmas and all the other holidays that you embrace & bring you joy (they tend to collide and coalesce around this calendar data point, don’t they?) from all of us at PVC Security to all of you & yours.

Stay tuned for the next thrilling episode, a repeat performance from Bob Rudis (@hrbrmstr). We’re making some tweaks to the format, some contextual changes, improved content, and will soon pop up on new pod catching venues. We’ll (probably) have another episode before the New Year descends.

Stay frosty. Stay thirsty. Stay hungry. Stay awesome.

Cheers, Dear Friends!

PVCSec Episode 8: ICANN Ramble Sony Rant

Dear Friends,

Behold the long-awaited eighth PVC Security podcast episode, another in the Collector’s Series.

Ed & Paul & Tim eschewed the normal format for a bit of a ramble and a bit of a rant with some differing opinions thrown in to the mix. Also new is that the topics are, shall we say, topical.

We talk about the Sony incident. We talk about the ICANN incident. We disagree at various points and agree at other various points. We … I don’t know … draw on the remaining various points?

Theme song update: we have no update as we have no song. If you’re up to ep. #8, then you know what that means. For those just joining us, it’ll be fine. Time heals all wounds, as does medication and therapy.

Show Notes:

This was not the podcast we intended to record. Ed was geared up thanks to the Twitterverse (I hate myself for using that term) before Tim rang him. Once Paul joined the conversation took on a life of its own. Tim recorded the whole thing, which is to his credit since he fell down HARD on the baseball question.

Ed & Paul were mostly working off of the top of their heads, so we don’t really have show notes per se. More detailed information may appear after Paul deals, through medication and therapy, with the singing .

Oh, the singing … It haunts …
