Want to spend the summer developing your hacking skills, researching cutting edge security topics and being part of the day-to-day activities at one of the world’s leading cyber security specialists and penetration testers?
Interns will spend approximately a third of their internship following a training course to develop skills in areas such as application security, network security, incident investigation, malware analysis, reverse engineering and vulnerability discovery.
A further third will be spent performing novel research into a topic of their choice, giving interns the chance to work side by side with F-Secure’s world renowned research team. Previous interns have produced research on everything from assessing NFC card security, to studying national cyber strategies around the world, to finding vulnerabilities in the Windows Kernel. Interns are encouraged to then present their research at conferences or in publications. Some previous work can be seen on our labs site (https://labs.f-secure.com/).
The final portion of the internship will be spent working alongside penetration testing consultants as they engage with clients to help solve their toughest security challenges.
Interns often come from a computing background, however we’ve had highly successful interns from a range of fields. Are you a psychologist who taught yourself a bit of Python to speed up stats analysis and is excited about security? We definitely want to hear from you. The main things F-Secure people have in common are a need to understand how things work and a passion for security.
Internships are paid, are typically between 10 and 12 weeks long, and will be based out of our New York City office (not remote).
