Episode 58 – Malware Analysis with Kyle Andrus
Kyle Andrus comes back to talk about what malware analysis is and some starting points for getting into it.
Often times in information security, we look upon penetration testing and red teaming with awe and view those professions as the "sexy" side of security. Truth be told, the defensive side has a lot of exciting opportunities as well! Kyle Andrus joins me this week to talk about malware analysis, which I think is definitely one of the sexier sides of defense. Some links of interest:
