Guidance on developing a career in Malware Forensics - aimed at students, teachers and career changers.


Andrew Moore


6:00pm - Start of presentation, followed by Q&As
7:00pm - Estimated finish


With over 1.2 billion malware samples being spotted in the wild (AV-ATLAS) with around 500,000 new samples detected daily (Statista), Malware Forensics is an ever-growing field. This field has different specialisations such as Dynamic/Static analysis, Design and Reverse Engineering.

In Malware Forensics, it is our job to determine if Malware is present on a computer system, stop the infection to get the business back up and running and identify who is responsible. Andrew will be giving an introduction to Malware Forensics which highlights common soft and technical skills needed, along with widely available resources to help you succeed in this career path. A hands-on tutorial will be shown by Andrew.
