Description

@mzbat is a frequent speaker at hacker conferences, and likes to help folks prepare for job searches by performing mock interviews and resume reviews.


We'll talk to @mzbat about security vs. compliance from the hacker perspective. What's different? What's the same? We'll get her take on how to build bridges and close the gap between the hacker/security community and the compliance side of the world. What advice can she give us for breaking down barriers as well as equipping ourselves for careers in the field of cybersecurity?

@mzbat

Mz. Bat began her legally ambiguous path toward a career in security with a Mac, “borrowed” internet, and ALLEGEDLY phished AOL accounts. She got her first legit tech job with Apple when they recruited her fresh out of grad school. She spent years doing application “QA” and breaking anything and everything she could in the worst possible ways. Fast forward a decade or so and she still breaks shit (when she’s not actually fixing something) and she's definitely NOT a thought leader. She tweets about her dogs, bats, and goth things that make her happy. She loves the ocean and Sour Patch Kids and she is NOT interested in having security techsplained to her. kthxbye.
