PVCSec Episode 11: No Phishing!

Dear Friends,

The next episode of the PVC Security podcast, number 11 in a collector’s series, is upon you!

This episode encapsulates Ed’s opinions on phishing. This topic was posed by Tim, our Senior Baseball Correspondent. Paul chimes in with his scholarly thoughts.

We tease you about our unicorn episode about interviewing and being interviewed.

We also talk more Security Theater!

Plus: quick hits, updates, and some of the feedback we’ve received.

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:

(Maybe) Coming Soon!

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.

Comments and questions are welcome as always. You can #askpvcsec on Twitter or email us at comments@pvcsec.com.

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:

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 …

PVCSec Episode 2: And So It Begins

The next episode of the PCVSec podcast, the second in a collector’s series, is upon you!

This episode, recorded first yet posted second, speaks in rambling terms about what Ed and Paul expect from the podcast and rant on a variety of topics such as:

  • Unsophisticated social engineering attacks rearing their ugly heads again
  • Some things that Ed hates
  • Thoughts on HealthCare.gov and overblowing news stories
  • Ideas to help make your meetings suck less
  • The value of asking “stupid” questions

Since this was the first go at recording and it was done weeks before the second episode, the more polished 4 Pillars of Leadership was released first. This one is the proof of concept. Ed and Paul considered not releasing it but Tim swayed the decision.

Remember, this isn’t your typical InfoSec podcast. This isn’t your typical management or business podcast either. It is the PVCSec podcast.
