In this episode we hear from Gabrielle Botbol, winner of the 8th Annual Women's Society of Cyberjutsu Award, about her route to becoming a pentester. From study abroad training and self-study programs, to being open to international relocation, Gabby shares her experience and recommendations for anyone interested in following in her footsteps.

We also discuss the #DoWeLookLikeHackers challenge, NorthSec, scary movies, krav maga, and much more!
