Jimmy Wylie is a Technical Lead Malware Analyst at Dragos, Inc. who spends his days (and nights) searching for and analyzing threats to critical infrastructure. He was the lead analyst on PIPEDREAM, the first ICS attack “utility belt”, TRISIS, the first malware to target a safety instrumented system, and analysis of historical artifacts of the CRASHOVERRIDE attack, the first attack featuring malware specifically tailored to disrupt breakers and switchgear in an electric transmission substation.
Starting as a hobbyist in 2009, Jimmy has over 12 years experience with reverse engineering and malware analysis. He has worked for various DoD contractors, leveraging a variety of skills against national level adversaries, including network analysis, dead disk and memory forensics, and software development for detection and analysis of malware. After leaving the DoD contracting world, he joined Focal Point Academy, where he developed and taught malware analysis courses to civilian and military professionals across the
country. In his off-time, Jimmy enjoys learning about operating systems internals, playing board games, and failing at crossword puzzles. He can be found on LinkedIn and Mastodon: @email@example.com
