In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, promoting an upcoming virtual roundtable on the topic of the evolving threat landscape, Astle, a senior threat researcher, discusses:

  • The COVID-19 threat landscape;
  • Where organizations are now most vulnerable;
  • Trends to watch in the “new normal.”

Astle is a Sr. Threat Researcher on the Carbon Black Threat Analysis Unit, with over 10 years of in-depth exposure to Incident Response, Threat Intelligence, and Cyber security testing/simulations for the IC and DOD. At Carbon Black he primarily focuses on product efficacy initiatives, working with customers and partners on incident handling, and 3rd party testing labs.

Prior to Carbon Black Jimmy was a Systems Engineer in the Cyber Systems Assessments Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory where he lead engineering efforts in a number of “live-fire” Cyber Command exercises as well as assisting critical National Security intelligence gathering missions.
