I'm Amr Thabet. I'm a former malware researcher in Symantec
. And a speaker in some of the top security conferences all around the world including DEFCON
, Hack In Paris, VB Conference
and have been featured in Christian Science Monitor
for my work on Stuxnet
Prior to that, I struggled to get into the field as I was a mechanical engineer graduate. I didn't have the budget to afford expensive certificates to prove my skills. The lack of a degree in computer science or certificates in the field didn't stop me from proving my skills.
As malware analysis is one of most demanded jobs in cybersecurity and with my work on different projects as a proof of my skills, I was able to land my first job in malware analysis and build my career from there to the top.
I faced lots of demotivating voices telling me that I wouldn't be able to make it. And because of that, after my successes, I decided to be the inspiring voice to all enthusiasts starting in malware analysis.
I help students of the field build their knowledge, experience and career to land their next malware analysis or incident response job in one of the top multinational companies.
