About Giang 🧐
Giang Ma is an international student from Vietnam and went to Seneca Polytechnic for a security program. He joined BMO as a Security Testing Analyst during Co-op, then worked full-time as a consultant under Bell Canada for 6 months before rejoined BMO as a member of the Financial Crime Unit, a.k.a. Penetration Tester. An active member of multiple security communities and a hobbyist chef who is on a journey to figure out dishes on his own cuisines.

Breaking into the industry
This session is more like a story telling than a talk. Giang will share his experience as an international student, from a student with no skills in almost everything to a full-time penetration testing. Along the way, he will answer the question, “What advice would I give myself 6 years ago when I just started?”
