About the Book:
Part thriller, part tell-all, Breaking and Entering is the true story of a female hacker (alias “Alien”) who tests the security of banks, governments, the military, the media, hospitals, and more by day and drives her two kids around in the family station wagon at night.  Alien is an MIT graduate who went from breaking and entering buildings and computer networks to building her own 30-person cybersecurity firm, which she now runs as CEO. This book, written by her friend and journalist Jeremy Smith, tells the exciting story of being on the front lines of the scary and exciting world of hacking.
