-- Worse; Too Much Joy, 1988



And the hits just keep oooonnnnn comin’! 3rd quarter only got weirder. We tried to return to a degree of normalcy with restaurants, theme parks and even sports re-opening in various forms. One thing that never stopped was the need to secure our data, companies and families. We also needed to figure out how to get people healthy. We talked about how risk and trust relate to controlling the chaos that can be part of security as well as the language and culture of security. We even had time to learn how to connect patients with the healthcare they need.

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...
