My name is Sean O’Connor. I have been conducting Intelligence operations for the last 12 years across multiple threat landscapes. I started out serving in the United States Armed Forces as an Army Human Intelligence (HUMINT) operator. After 5 years of serving, including one 12-month tour in eastern Afghanistan, I received an honorable discharge. I decided that I wanted to have some more fun so I went back to Afghanistan this time as a counterintelligence private contractor for the Department of Defense. After 14 months of CI operations in western Afghanistan I got hired by another company to do incident response on a counterintelligence team in central Afghanistan. I operated as an armed technical incident responder for another 9 months before I finally decided I had enough of Afghanistan and came back to the United States. I have been working for a Dell Technologies company in Atlanta for a little more than 5 years as a Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst in the Counter Threat Unit with a focus in conducting Darkweb/Darknet intelligence gathering operations. These operations consist of gaining and maintaining access into high profile forums, marketplaces and other sources while also communicating with high-level threat actors to build credibility, and gain actionable intelligence for our clients and Law Enforcement partners. I am also passionate about volunteering my time to organizations such as the CTI-League, a globally recognized volunteer-based CERT, working side by side with law enforcement to protect healthcare organizations from cybercriminals looking to take advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
