What does the F-Secure Consulting Internship Programme look like?
F-Secure Consulting's award-winning internship programme is designed to find and develop the next generation of Security Consultants. After receiving the Princess Royal Training Award in 2018 in recognition of the quality of the internship programme, F-Secure Consulting has continued to build on the programme's strengths to ensure our interns develop abilities that would enable them to break into the industry.
Interns at F-Secure complete practical training courses in application security, network security, reverse engineering, cryptography, and threat hunting to provide them with the core technical skills required by penetration testers around the globe.
Upon completion of the training, interns work side by side with F-Secure's world renowned researchers to investigate a chosen area. Past research topics have included cloud security, the Windows kernel, machine learning applications to security, malware characteristics and detection, and global cyber security strategies. Previously one of F-Secure's interns discovered a 0-day in a popular enterprise application and earned a CVE in the process.
Interns are encouraged to share their research through conferences and publications. Examples of F-Secure's world leading research can be found on F-Secure Labs.
