“Diversity and independence are important because the best collective decisions are the product of disagreement and contest, not consensus or compromise.”
On this week’s InSecurity, Matt Stephenson has a chat with Pulsedive co-founders Grace Chi and Dan Sherry about the joy and pain of security startup life. In the world of the Threat Intelligence research, the best people are often looking for the best tools. Why not build a community around some stellar tools so the Wisdom of the Crowd can push security in the directions it needs to go? Grace and Dan want to help heard the cats to solve the problems

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...
