Zuzana Hromcová is a malware researcher with ESET’s Montréal research team. Her professional journey has been shaped by both her studies – she holds a master’s degree in computer science – as well as her interest in solving logical puzzles and challenges. Three-times a Slovak sudoku champion, with numerous appearances at World Sudoku and World Puzzle Championships, she spent a decade sharpening her analytical skills for a job that was yet to come.
In 2016, she joined @ESETResearch and moved on from solving logical puzzles to dissecting malicious binaries and dismantling espionage campaigns. Zuzana focuses on targeted threats and is a frequent speaker at security conferences, having shared her research with the audience at RSAC, BlueHat IL, Virus Bulletin and other events.
