Last Thursday’s Pizza My Mind was hosted by the cyber security company FireEye. Technical Recruiter Alex Lawrence and Software Engineer Matt Rutherford discussed the way in which FireEye works to protect their clients from cyber attacks and how they formulate solutions to fight them in the future.
When working with a client FireEye will write a report on any detected problem and then either leave it to the client or tackle the issue themselves. Potential risk areas are discovered using a virtual machine based execution system that can look at several problem areas at once and analyze each individual factor within. Once a problem area is discovered they work to provide “end to end solutions,” to the issue that their competitors cannot provide.
A video featuring FireEye’s CEO Kevin Mandia was shown as he spoke in support of the company’s internships and encouraged CNU students to apply. The company guarantees “impactful,” work for its interns as well as access to community outreach and executive engagements. It was recommended by Rutherford that prospective interns or employees should learn to read API and source code as it would be a major part of their future job.
