About this talk

The Synack Red Team (SRT) gives the most talented security researchers across the globe a platform to do what they love and get paid for it. A private network of highly-curated and vetted security researchers, the SRT is challenged every day to deliver exploitation discovery and management for some of the biggest brands in the world. On the Synack platform, researchers have access to the industry’s first ever hacker toolkit built at enterprise scale, to make them more efficient and effective at uncovering critical vulnerabilities that matter. These ethical hackers are increasingly being recognised as an important way for businesses to unearth security weaknesses before they can be exploited by online criminals. In this Webinar, Synack Red Team member, Callum Carney joins Synack’s Justin Shaw Gray for an open conversation on what a day in the life of an ethical hacker is all about. He’ll discuss: - How he started his ethical hacker journey - Why he chose Synack - How it’s changed in the 2 years he’s been working with us - What information is critical to successful testing - Why you should be using ethical hackers - Processes used when a new target comes online. - And much much more Callum started his ethical hacking journey by supporting organisations such as Google, Spotify and Local UK Businesses to secure their systems. In January 2017, after noticing all of the great comments regarding the Synack platform (fast payouts, fast response times, etc), he applied for the Synack Red Team and was accepted. During his time with Synack he has worked to secure a multitude of systems including government and Fortune 500 enterprise systems. In addition to his work with Synack Callum is studying for an Undergraduate Masters Degree in Computer Science and working as a Software Tester/Developer for the UKs largest supplier of Functional Skills and GCSE assessments.
