Marcus J. Carey is a cybersecurity researcher, hacker, and the founder and CEO of Threatcare. He describes himself as a hacker who helps people not suck at cybersecurity. He started his technology voyage in U.S. Navy Cryptology and later went on to refine his knowledge while working at the National Security Agency (NSA).
Marcus is also the author of a new book with Jennifer Jin entitled Tribe of Hackers: Cybersecurity Advice from the Best Hackers in the World. The book is a collection of interviews with 70 top hackers and is available now on Amazon. A free pdf of the book is available here.
Marcus sat down with me at the RSA Security Conference in San Francisco in March to discuss his path to a career in cybersecurity, the NSA, Edward Snowden, his book Tribe of Hackers, the future of the cybersecurity industry and much more.
