Paid to attack her employer, Parisa Tabriz is a white-hat hacker on the front line in the fight against the Internet ‘bad guys’.
“Miss Tabriz, 31, is something of an anomaly in Silicon Valley. Not only is she a woman – a gender hugely under-represented in the booming tech industry – but she is a boss heading up a mostly male team of 30 experts in the US and Europe.
As such she has the power to choose her own title – and ‘Security Princess’ is on her business card. She came up with it while attending a conference in Tokyo: ‘I knew I’d have to hand out my card and I thought Information Security Engineer sounded so boring. Guys in the industry all take it so seriously, so security princess felt suitably whimsical.'”
