Lucas Paus

Security Researcher

Education: Systems student at John F. Kennedy University in Argentina. I have two certifications issued by EC-Council as Certified Etical Hacker (CEH) and Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI). In addition, I did numerous courses and various investigations in the field of computer security and cryptography.

Highlights of your career: Prior to joining ESET Latin America, I developed as a Technical Specialist in an Internet incident response team for seven years.

Position and history at ESET: I work as a Security Researcher for Latin America since January 2015.

What malware do you hate the most? In the past, Win32/Conficker, but I think today would be some ransomware.

Favorite activities: In my spare time I really like to dive. I also like motorbikes and dancing, practicing extreme sports and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

Golden rule for cyberspace? Common sense. Don't let your session become their session.

When did you get your first computer and what kind was it? It was in 1992, an Intel AT 486 PC. I still have my 51/4 DOS and Windows 3.11 diskettes.

Favorite computer game / activity: I haven't played in a while but I had a lot of fun with friends playing Def Jam: Fight For NY or Age of Empires.
