Becoming an Analyst Part 1: Insights From Former Government Analysts

June 12, 2017 • Amanda McKeon

In this episode of the Recorded Future podcast, we introduce you to two threat intelligence analysts, Lauren Zabierek and Alex Walker. They both have previous experience with threat analysis for the U.S. government — Lauren was formerly in the Air Force, and, inspired to serve after 9/11, took part in missions in Afghanistan. Alex came out of college and joined NSA, where he worked as an intelligence analyst. They share their insights on their day-to-day challenges as analysts at Recorded Future and how they help turn raw data into threat intelligence.

This is the first in an occasional series of behind-the-scenes looks at Recorded Future. Over the next few months we’ll drop in from time to time on some of the Recorded Future team members, to find out what it is they do, how they do it, what made them choose their careers, along with some advice for anyone considering the field. They’ll share their stories, in their own words.

This podcast was produced in partnership with the CyberWire and Pratt Street Media, LLC.
