NM Cybersecurity | APT1: A Malware Attack Perspective
On February 13th, Mandiant, a leading security incident response company released its “APT1″ report, directly linking thousands of breaches against American companies over several years to a few isolated Chinese hacking groups. This first-ever public report and implication of government-sponsored attacks by the Chinese government has far-reaching implications not only for the American intelligence community but for our allies and enemies worldwide. The report is changing the game for security professionals everywhere. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear from one of Mandiant’s own reverse engineers, Carrie Jung about the report.
About Carrie Jung:
Carrie Jung is a malware reverse engineer and security researcher at Mandiant based in Washington, DC. She was patient zero for the beginning of Mandiant’s Albuquerque office when she started working remotely in 2011. Since then the office has grown to eight people. Carrie helps teach various levels of malware reverse engineering training at information security conferences, such as Blackhat, and other venues. Prior to Mandiant, she spent nearly a decade in computer security research at Sandia National Laboratories working on everything from application security to network security to low-level systems based security and reverse engineering. Carrie received her BS in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics from Purdue University, and a MS in Information Security Technology and Management from Carnegie Mellon where her thesis focused on automated binary transformations. When she is not researching the latest malware samples and techniques she is breaking a sweat doing cross-fit and wrangling the animals at her mini-farm
