PVCSec.com Features

Hi, All!

A few or more new features have been added to the site.

First, we have a mirror for all of the podcasts over at leiturgia.com. Just follow the mirror link  in the posts if for some reason you can’t download the podcast direct from PVCSec.com.

Next, we have some probationary podcast art on its way. We hope to release it as a beta for your comments.

Several WordPress JetPack features have been turned on. For example, you can share PVCSec posts to most of the big social networks.

You can now log in with your WordPress.com account. And you can comment with your WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts.

The mobile viewing experience should improve with some under-the-hood changes.

Some features are coming, such as leveraging CouldFlare’s SSL/TLS for more secure connections to the site and properly working podcast syndication and iTunes subscription options.

We’re also looking at more appealing themes for the site. We want them to be inviting, intuitive, and provide the most information possible.

Topic: Upgrade Process as Security Response

Paul and Ed are getting ready to record the next PVCSec podcast. They reckon to talk about the upgrade process as a security response in light of the copious commentary about the Point of Sale (PoS) retail attacks and shellshock.

We at PVCSec are keen to know your thoughts. Tweet comments and questions with the hashtag #pvcsec or email them to comments at pvcsec dot com. You can comment here as well.

So, we had this “Idea” …

… that a podcast would be a fun thing to do. Edgar Rojas and me, Paul Jorgensen, wanted to give it a label, some framework, and an audience. So we decided an Info Sec podcast would be good.

However, we are painfully aware that the world-at-large does not need Yet Another Information Security Podcast (hereafter YAISP). We already have some differentiation:

  • We’re not a corporate podcast
  • We’re not sponsored
  • We’re not advertising

The other big difference is that we want to include leadership in the mix. Both Ed and I are leaders, have presented talks on the subject, and security leadership is sorely lacking in the industry.

Ed and I batted this about over Twitter for a short while when our good friend Tim DeBlock pipped in and offered to record us.

And so it goes. We’re all excited to bring this to you every week (or so). We’re looking to add in music and guests and graphics and your comments in the coming weeks.

Share & Enjoy!

Paul
