Workshop Key Takeaways/Learnings
- Fundamentals in what and how to Reverse Engineer
- Practical knowledge and skills to Reverse Engineer basic applications
- Simple Malware Analysis
- Foundation for a further learning path to continue the Reversing journey
We encourage everyone with an interest in the topic to attend! However reverse engineering is a highly technical field and we emphasize a disclaimer that in order to reverse you'll need to find comfort in a terminal. Individuals in technical fields or interests in or active in roles such as Vulnerability Research and Blue Team assignments (Analysts) are our primary targets however we aim to deliver our content such that everyone can follow.
