PVCSec at Converge/Bsides Detroit

Dear Friends,

Two great tastes that taste great together – that is one way to describe the upcoming appearance of 66% to 100% of PVCSec at Converge/Bsides Detroit 16 – 17 July. This year, Wayne State University in the heart of Detroit Michigan US of A (a.k.a. “The Arsenal of Democracy”) hosts the event.

Ed & Paul will together present 4 Pillars – Passion, Vision, Communication, Execution. They will cover security and leadership for practitioners at all levels.

If that excites you, and we KNOW that it does, then for this next part please make sure you seat yourself before proceeding.

There will be a LIVE PVC Security Podcast as well! Honored and excited by the invitation doesn’t begin to describe our emotions. Paul & Ed (and we hope Tim) will sing and talk and joke and rant and laugh and whatever else. Audience participation is not only welcome but strongly encouraged.

You, yes YOU, could end up on the podcast!

As soon as we have more details we shall be sure to share with you, the Listener. Get your tickets NOW!

Stay Tuned!

Slacking, Part Deux

Dear Friends,

Due to an unfortunate scheduling snafu last week there is no new PVC Security podcast episode at the moment. The team continues to work towards getting you, the Listener, some fresh content.

Stay tuned, and Thank You for Your Support!

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
