Those who think that all hackers are teenage kids with no social life are wrong! In fact, today’s typical malware development team probably looks more like an Internet startup than a group of crooks. In this spirited conversation, Intrinium’s Stephen Heath will profile a contemporary Rogues Gallery of known hackers — what their goals are, some of their favorite tools and attack patterns — and most importantly: How they make money!
Stephen, currently the director of security services at Intrinium, has over a decade of experience in IT Security across all sectors, with a specialization in penetration testing, compliance auditing, data forensics, system management, and security remediation. He is currently active in raising security awareness in cultures where it has been previously undervalued, and has provided security training to staff of all levels of technical expertise. Stephen is a graduate of Eastern Washington University with both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Computer Science. His graduate studies emphasized Information Security, with special research in network protocol analysis and Man-in-the-Middle attacks. His culminating thesis exposed previously unobserved vulnerabilities in the BitTorrent protocol.
