In our very first episode, our two hosts James and Karl are joined by our very own Marc Maiffret to talk about Marc's experience being raided by the FBI as a teenager, the infamous Code Red worm he co-discovered, and how cybersecurity will be different in the future. A great episode to kick-off the series with!
Ep. 02 - Basic Adorable Destruction // Jayson E Street
Once described as a "paunchy hacker" by Rolling Stone Magazine, Jayson E Street, joins Marc and Karl in our second episode to talk about his unique take on pen testing, how his biggest success story is about him failing, and how everyone is born a hacker. This 62 minute episode flies by as Jayson takes listeners through a very entertaining and sometimes terrifying world of hacking.
Ep. 03 - Fighting the Vastaamo Ransomware Attack // Sami Laiho
One of the leading Windows OS professionals in the world, Sami Laiho, joins James and Karl in this episode to talk about how choosing your words wisely can convince people to take security seriously and how he dealt with the Vastaamo ransomware attack, the largest crime ever committed in Finland.
Ep. 04 - She Hacks Purple // Tanya Janca
Best-selling author of Alice and Bob Learn Application Security (yes, we swoon at the name too), Tanya Janca, joins Marc and Karl to talk about what it’s like being a woman in cybersecurity, the origin story of We Hack Purple, and how important it is to be integrated in the cybersecurity community. Tanya had a lot to share in this 60 minute episode and left us eager to book another installment with her!

In this 30-minute episode we are introducing After Hours with Alice & Bob, a special live episode recorded at BeyondTrust’s GoBeyond event in Miami Florida.
