    Gyle has a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary background. She is passionate about contributing to the cyber security industry and wants to empower everyone in understanding how their actions can create a safer cyber world. Her day job as a Senior Security Consultant – Incident Response in the IBM X-Force IR team involves doing proactive and reactive work with different clients. She lives in Melbourne, Australia where the best coffee is available from the different cafes. She was part of the first cohort of the Project Friedman – a joint initiative of Australian Women in Security Network (AWSN) and Women Speak Cyber to encourage more women to speak in cyber security conferences. In her spare time, she mentors other people who are new to the field, presents in different cyber security events and volunteers with different organisations.


Based on the X-Force Threat Intelligence Index 2021, last year saw an increase in new Linux malware families; hence 2020 was dubbed as the Year of the Linux threat. Threat actors that previously targeted Windows systems are now including Linux malware in their arsenal. If your system becomes the target and you have a full-blown incident, what do you do? If you’re unsure, join Gyle as she talks about how an Incident Response (IR) process unfolds and why your incident responder keeps asking you for certain artefacts.
