Why did you get into cybersecurity?
I was a kernel developer and a data enthusiast, and malicious activity was almost always considered too hard to deal with or out of scope. However, this changed when I got an opportunity to do system-level hacking as part of an internship. Since then I have enjoyed building data and learning based security solutions to combat malware, fraud and abuse.
