A rising millennial in the world of cybersecurity, MacKenzie Brown founded The Ms. Grey Hat Organization, a non-profit aimed at empowering more women to enter the field starting with childhood education, with a focus on developing precision ‘black hat’ skills to become a ‘white hat’ professional that can thwart malicious attacks. She authored a three-part Unicorn Extinction blog series – an introspective on women in cybersecurity – for the 2017 RSA Conference. She puts her ‘grey hat’ skills into practice as a research principal at security services firm Optiv, where she helps enterprises around the world assess and optimize threat preparedness.
