Caroline Wong is an infosec community advocate whose career-long obsession with knowledge sharing dates back to her first textbook, Security Metrics: A Beginner’s Guide. Today that obsession is apparent in her hosting duties for the Humans of Infosec podcast, the dozens of security conferences where she speaks each year, her LinkedIn Learning coursework, and her latest published work: The PtaaS Book.
When she isn’t evangelizing Pentest as a Service for the masses or pushing for more women in tech, Caroline focuses on her role as Chief Strategy Officer at Cobalt, a fully remote cybersecurity startup with a mission to modernize traditional pentesting via a SaaS platform coupled with an exclusive community of vetted, highly skilled testers. At Cobalt, Caroline champions a cultural blend of innovation and grit while putting into practice her experience with communications, leadership, and delivering global security programs at scale.
After fleeing the toxic mimosas-in-the-morning grind of Silicon Valley in 2014 Caroline moved to a ranch in Portland, Oregon, where she now lives with her family. She has never looked back.
