Anna Lorimer will present Security Internships: Bringing up the next generation of hackers

Software engineering internships are increasingly popular and are becoming an integral part of career development for newcomers to the tech scene.They’re also valuable to any organization because they give senior engineers the opportunity to pass on knowledge and make it easier to find full time hires down the road. While there’s plenty of information about how to run a software engineering internship, the same can’t be said for security internships. In this talk I’ll discuss how security internships differ from regular software engineering internships, how to find interns, and how to structure internships to set up both your organization and the intern(s) for success.


Anna Lorimer is an undergraduate student studying math and computer science at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Canada. She’s done 5 internships over the course of her undergraduate career and is currently doing her sixth with New Relic’s Product Security Team in Portland. She is also the co-founder of StarCon, a technology conference focused on the joy of technology and building a community around sharing technical knowledge.
