The Cisco Talos Intelligence Group has lost one of its better researchers, with Paul Rascagnères moving over to join Kaspersky's Global Threat Research unit this year.

Rascagnères, who has been involved in some of the better research posts put out by Talos in the last few years, has been in the cyber security field for more than a decade.

He has joined Kaspersky as a senior security researcher specialising in targeted attack investigations.

Rascagnères started his career as a pentester, but then moved over to the defensive side, exploring incident response and malware analysis for European bodies in Luxembourg and Belgium.

He was also involved in the creation of the first private sector CERT in Luxembourg in 2012.

Rascagnères has also worked for GData, a German anti-virus company. He was the author of the first public report on Turla, the group suspected to have Russian links.

He spent four years at Cisco. Rascagnères won the Péter Ször award given by the VirusBulletin conference in 2019 for his work on DNS hijacking attacks.
