Hamza is a Threat Hunter for Countercept since its inception in 2015. He joined right after completing his degree in Computer Security. Since then, he has investigated thousands of incidents, achieved both OSCP and CRIA status, as well as having presented to both industry clients and security audiences alike.
“Countercept by MWR provides a complete managed service for the detection and response to cyber-attacks. It specializes in targeted attacks from sophisticated criminal groups and nation- state threat actors (APT groups) and offers 24/7 proactive threat hunting. The service is driven by a team with real-world experience in attack simulation and incident response, leveraging an advanced endpoint solution.
Countercept is a ‘managed detection and response’ service (MDR) that puts emphasis on skilled threat hunters, rather than relying purely on technology. MDR services are an evolution of attack- detection methods and technologies where traditional MSSPs (managed security service providers) fall short. Proactive threat hunting, by a team trained in offensive techniques, is the most effective way to defend against targeted attacks.”
