Making a Security Career TransitionAaron Sherman Shares Insights on Moving From FBI to the Private Sector
Aaron Sherman recently made the transition from serving as an FBI agent investigating cybercrime and nation-state threats to working at Braintrace on ways to improve detection and response efforts.
He says his experience as an FBI agent is helpful in his new role because "I have a really good understanding of how criminals operate." He now uses technology to monitor how criminal and nation-state tactics are evolving to help organizations improve their security.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Chicago Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Sherman discusses:
- The roles of email and social engineering in cyberattacks;
- Evolving nation-state and cybercriminal threats;
- His experience in making a career transition.
Sherman, senior director of cyber threat intelligence at Braintrace, formerly was an FBI agent and also worked in U.S. Army intelligence.
