Even if you're not a malware analyst, any blue teamer should be able to do some initial basic malware sample triage. The good news is that this is quite easy to do using freely available tools once you know what is available. Join John in this conversation with Ryan Chapman as they discuss how to reverse engineer malware and why you might want to do so.
