We are all truly honored and flattered to be winners of the RSA ‘Social Security Awards Best Security Podcast’. It has truly been a wild ride for the past four years and we are so glad that everyone enjoys the show! We get together to record every Thursday evening, and since January of this year we have not missed a week. So, I want to make sure that I thank our families (especially my ever-so-patient wife) for supporting us in this effort. There are a lot of people that help make this show happen, including all of our staff, sponsors, and especially you listeners! We would also like to thank all of the other security podcasts out there, we listen to all of you, and you inspire us to keep improving, so keep up the great work! Great job to all, and thanks for listening! Don’t think that we will sit around and bask in our glory for too long, in fact, we’re done with that. We are working hard to keep improving and growing PaulDotCom to the next level. So stay tuned, we’ve got good things coming! This includes continuing to point out where security fails, and offering suggestions for improvement, like tiny nets.

“Its a net, and its tiny…”

PaulDotCom Episode 150

At various points in the life of our podcast we like to sit back and marvel at what we’ve accomplished. Okay, not really, we just use this as an excuse to drink more beer! In all seriousness, we do like to have an excuse to celebrate and put on a special show. Episode 150 of PaulDotCom Security Weekly is going to be one of those shows. We have decided to podcast for 12 hours! (What a way to celebrate 150 and our award eh?). We have an absolutely jam packed schedule, will be talking about the latest topics in information security, and joined by some of the top people in our field. Check out the show schedule below:

April 30, 2009 12:00PM-12:00AM EDT
