The Ada Lovelace Society - Interview with Chris Kubecka
After hacking the U.S. Department of Justice at the age of ten, Chris Kubecka was not allowed near any computer or own any electronic devices until the age of eighteen. After that, she quickly became a renowned cyber security expert and one of the most powerful hackers in the world, a power she uses for the good as an ethical hacker.
How did a ten year old, pig-tailed girl manage to hack the U.S. government and what does a day at the office look like when you're a hacker? What are the vulnerabilities in today's digital society and what can be done to protect our systems?
In the Ada Lovelace Society, a new Felix series, which is named after the first coder in history, mathematician Ada Lovelace (1815-1856), we feature the outstanding work of female scientists from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
