    Angela Marafino- @MegatronAL and "Hacker Book Club" (updated)

    Angela Marafino is an Evolve Security Academy alumna, a Microsoft project manager, and the co-host of the "Hacker Book Club". 

    With no prior background in IT or computer science, Angela did not take the traditional route to obtain a career in cybersecurity. However, the desire for a more challenging career led her to enroll in a cybersecurity bootcamp, which gave her the skills and mindset necessary to become a cybersecurity professional. She is CompTIA Security+ and Network+ certified and holds two bachelor’s degrees, one in fine arts and another in pre-law. Angela is also the organizer of her local Women of Security (WoSec) chapter.

You’re the best Ray

I’ve started listening to Ray’s podcast as I didn’t know about it before. And am glad i found it. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys InfoSec stories (I mean real stories rather InfoSec Drama and B*****) keep up the good work Ray 🥂

True to the purpose!

Ray does a great job hosting the ToH Podcast and just like the books, the guests and content are true to giving back to the community, redefining the perception of “hacker”, and bringing professionals together to give sound advice. Love this podcast!
