Esther Lim

My name’s Esther Lim and I am currently working as a cybersecurity specialist at Hivint based in Melbourne, doing all things security related such as ethical hacking that ranges from mobile or web application ethical hacking to lockpicking for work.

What is ethical hacking? An ethical hacker is a computer and networking expert who systematically attempts to penetrate a computer system or network on behalf of its owners for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could potentially exploit.

I am heavily involved with security groups such as OWASP Melbourne, Ruxmon and Sectalks.

I hope to be able to talk about my experiences of being one of few women in my field and hope to inspire girls to be able to see just how exciting it is to be a woman in the field of cybersecurity.
