When I first reached out to interview Lesley, I knew nothing about network security. I'd seen Mr. Robot, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and a slew of cheesy 90's hacker films. I figured that had to be some truth to what hackers do being played on on screen.
After a network has been identified as hacked into by the people who monitor it, or by a government agency, Lesley leads a team of people to figure out how the network was broken into, what was stolen, what other devices might be compromised. And then she reports everything the hackers did while they touched those systems.
We also talked about a blog post she had written called "The Top 9 ways I Found Your 'Secret' Dating Profile", how to handle twitter trolls, and how to find free, open source tools for getting into network security.
