ToorCon TwentyOne speaker: Megan DeBlois

I lead tech projects at Internews focused around improving civil society’s security literacy and resiliency. Currently working on enhancing threat info sharing capabilities of high risk communities around the globe, while advising on other infosec risks across Internews.

I am also a part time student at the University of Oxford studying for my MSc in Software and Systems Security. My current research and interests lie around better understanding malware operations targeting civil society, journalists, human rights groups, and other targeted communities globally. The more we know, the better we defend.
