Synopsis

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) actors conduct attacks against governments and organisations around the world every day. To be able to defend effectively organisations must know what they are up against. Threat intelligence provides information on how attackers are operating, the patterns they have and the mistakes they make.

In this session Jack will explain how his learning and passion opened doors in the Cyber Security world and what it’s like to work in threat intelligence. He will also demonstrate a reverse engineering activity from his every-day’s work.

This webinar series consists of career stories and workshops of Cyber Security Early Career Professionals around the world. We expect to run at least a webinar a month starting from November 2020.
