DirtySecurity Podcast: Security Tales from the Ultimate Road Warrior

Road Shows and Lunch & Learns and Meet & Greets OH MY! For the past 3 years, Richard Melick has traveled all over the world bringing Cylance’s prevention-based endpoint protection to the masses.

From the Unbelievable Tour to the UNDRWRLD Tour and beyond, Richard has created zero-day malware and ransomware in front of thousands of people, then challenged CylancePROTECT® to prevent those zero-days from executing - all live in front of a live audience. There was no safety net. There was no chance to make a second first impression.

These events were more than just marketing though. Richard was there to inform and educate his guests on the perils of Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS). Sometimes, there were even headline-grabbing events like WannaCry, Petya, and NotPetya.

In this week’s episode of DirtySecurity, Edward Preston chats with Cylance’s world traveler Richard Melick about the evolution of Cylance’s live road shows. Find out what we’ve learned from the past, what we’re doing in the present, and Cylance’s plans for the future.
