Alright, close your eyes. Good. Now, I want you to picture the following person. This person has a real passion for detection. This person eats their Wheaties, with a side of freshly toasted attackers’ dreams of living off the land. As a defender, they think it’s cute that the attacker has the impression they can get by a layered defense by not dropping any binaries and just using Powershell, WMI, VBScript or the new hotness… and get away with it.
Please keep your eyes closed, we aren’t done visualizing. Next, imagine this person is fascinated by engineering principles. This person wishes unit tests for detections were as simple as importing pytest. They have a deep appreciation for what a great engineer can do with a hard problem. But they’re also someone who loves to solve hard engineering problems themselves, usually at the intersection of detection and response automation to make their lives, and their co-workers' lives, a little easier.
Finally, this person we’ve been picturing thrives in working with others. They might eat breakfast and destroy the dreams of attackers, but they genuinely love watching others be successful. They are someone who has trained and mentored others to investigate and respond to alerts generated by their research. They know that true scale comes from training others.
Now open your eyes. First off, I hope your eyes weren’t closed and you’re not someone who just blindly does what they’re told! Besides, how else could you have caught all the significant bits? Did you end up picturing yourself?
