I’ve not been maintaining a blog for quite some time know. So why do I feel that ti now makes sense to start over again. Well, first and foremost whenever I develop new fancy threat detection mechanisms and strategies or run incident response engagements in my day job, or when I’m teaching SANS classes around the world people tell me cool stuff that makes me better in what I am doing. Now it’s time to contribute more to the community, give back what the community gave and still gives to me.
I’m not sure yet how that’s gonna turn out, but in the end I want to be able to point my customers and my students to my blog when they ask my what the hack I’m doing all day long. I also want to incubate and conserve ideas here. Right now I do have ideas for maybe my first 3-4 blog entries. I want to keep those entries technical, make whatever I describe usable to others. The DFIR community is a great community and I’m proud to be in a position to contribute at least a little bit to it.
So my full name is Mathias Fuchs, I’d rather go by the name of Mat (yes just one t – like in my full name). My current day job is building Cyberdefence Center in it’s own league together with awesome colleagues. My office is in Switzerland but I still live in Austria and commute on a weekly basis.
Besides that I teach the Advanced Incident Response and Threat Hunting” class for SANS (www.sans.org). I love it to travel to conferences and meet the best of the best – learn from them and maybe also help them to become even better incident responders.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ping me on twitter, via mail or wherever you can find me. If you look to the right, you see where I’m currently at if I’m at conferences.
