What is the Practical Junior Malware Researcher (PJMR) Certification?

The Practical Junior Malware Researcher (PJMR) is a one-of-a-kind certification focused on malware analysis, research, and triage. 

This unique exam experience will put the student in the shoes of an enterprise-level malware researcher who must:

    • Apply a wide array of malware analysis methodologies to document the technical details of malware samples.
    • Create a professional malware analysis report that documents each sample’s key technical facts.
    • Create detection rules based on malware characteristics.

Students will have five (5) full days to complete the assessment and an additional two (2) days to write a professional report.
