The Social-Engineer Podcast

Today on the Social-Engineer Podcast: The Security Awareness Series, Chris is joined by Mary D'Angelo. Mary helps clients understand the threats that exist on the dark web and how to use that intelligence to bolster their cybersecurity programs. With a solid foundation from the University of Washington, where she earned her Bachelor's degree, Mary has rapidly ascended as a global leader at SearchLight Cyber. Her expertise, honed over six years, delves deep into understanding the nuances of dark web threat actors and their intelligence.

Mary's and her company’s insights and analyses have been instrumental in shedding light on the shadowy aspects of cyber threats emanating from the dark web. Her work not only aids in neutralizing these threats but also contributes significantly to the broader understanding of cyber security dynamics.

Additionally, Mary’s passion is volunteering her talents into nonprofit organizations. She was a mentor for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Recently, she has devoted her time to a nonprofit called, The Innocent Lives Foundation, which uses Dark Web Threat Intelligence to help law enforcement stop child traffickers. [Feb 19, 2024]
