S02E07: A Day in the Life of a Threat Researcher

Season 2: How to Be a Cyber Criminal

Cybercriminals may be nefarious, but they are also people. And people have habits. If you want to stop one, it helps if you learn them. 

In our latest episode, we’re speaking with Wes Drone, Sr. Manager, Threat Intelligence, at Proofpoint and a former FBI Agent, about what a typical day looks like for the people stopping threat actors by thinking like them. 

We discuss:

  • Wes’ transition from the FBI to threat intelligence
  • The habits of threat actors 
  • How Wes tracks individual threat actors
