InSecurity 2020: The Best of the Worst Year EVAR, Fourth Quarter
Play • 1 hr

This is not the end - it's just another song It's only one opinion, right or wrong Open up your heart - just one more time for me Before we turn to face reality Don't stop to think This perfect chance may never come again This is not the end

Let me use your ears - just for a little while I've got to find a way to make you smile

This is not my fault, I'm not responsible These tiny grooves can only take so much There's only one more thing I have to say to you So long for now, be sure to keep in touch This is not the end


 -- Agent Orange; This Is Not the End, 1986



We did it… We finished the Worst Year EVAR! 4th Quarter 2020 seemed a fitting end for the wildest year on record. All year we spoke with the experts around the spectrum of security. From stopping stupid behavior among humans to securely developing applications to the role of insurance in pre and post breach events, we found the right people with the inside dope. We also stepped out of security into the notion of leadership, who is doing what in the world of international relations and how that can impact the security of our economy, elections and government. 2021 has to be better… right?




About Matt Stephenson





Insecurity Podcast host Matt Stephenson (@packmatt73) leads the Broadcast Media team at BlackBerry, which puts me in front of crowds, cameras, and microphones all over the world. I am the regular host of the InSecurity podcast and video series at events around the globe.


I have spent the last 10 years in the world of Data Protection and Cybersecurity. Since 2016, I have been with Cylance (now BlackBerry) extolling the virtues of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and how, when applied to network security, can wrong-foot the bad guys. Prior to the COVID shutdown, I was on the road over 100 days a year doing live malware demonstrations for audiences from San Diego to DC to London to Abu Dhabi to Singapore to Sydney. One of the funniest things I've ever been a part of was blowing up a live instance of NotPetya 6 hours after the news broke... in Washington DC... directly across the street from FBI HQ... as soon as we activated it a parade of police cars with sirens blaring roared past the building we were in. I'm pretty they weren't there for us, but you never know...


Every week on the InSecurity Podcast, I get to interview interesting people doing interesting things all over the world of cybersecurity and the extended world of hacking. Sometimes, that means hacking elections or the coffee supply chain... other times that means social manipulation or the sovereign wealth fund of a national economy.


InSecurity is about talking with the people who build, manage or wreck the systems that we have put in place to make the world go round...
