Play • 1 hr 16 min

Hard times spreading just like the flu

Watch out homeboy, don't let it catch you

P-p-p-prices go up, don't let your pocket go down

When you got short money you're stuck on the ground

Turn around, get ready, keep your eye on the clock

And be on point for the future shock

 -- Run DMC; Hard Times, 1983



Back for more! The 2nd quarter of 2020 saw the world go into full lockdown. We all had to learn to live in a world where busines and personal happened at the same time in the same place… quite often the kitchen. How did we adapt? How did me move home and secure it for serious business? Meanwhile, life went on. We had to secure elections, keep kids safe online and even advance careers. Oh… PS… diseases like cancer didn’t go away… we had to keep fighting them too. Take a listen to the warriors…






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...
