In the second episode of RedTeam Raw, Picnic’s Director of Global Intelligence, Manit Sahib, sits down with certified SANS instructor, author, researcher, consultant, and rock star RedTeamer Jean-François Maes, known on Twitter as @Jean_Maes_1994. Based in Belgium, Jean-François is the founder of redteamer.tips and is an avid contributor to the offensive security community. He is currently a security researcher at HelpSystems where he aids the Cobalt-Strike team in developing new features.
We discuss how he got into InfoSec and became a SANS instructor; the difference between pentesting, Red Teaming, and Purple Teaming; the most common ways of gaining a foothold as a RedTeamer; a RedTeam story with flowers from Jean-François; his tool Clippi-B; how he manages his time; motivations and resources for becoming a hacker; advice for getting into the industry and being able to stand out; Jean’s biggest challenge at the moment, and where he sees the industry going.
