No one is born knowing how to do this
In this episode, we go back (according to him, wayyyy back) with Peter Silberman, CTO of Expel, whose background includes cold calling computer repair companies for a job when he was 16 … whoa. Pete chats about how traits like curiosity (asking questions), a willingness to take chances and be uncomfortable, and understanding how to break something can become superpowers. Solving problems can be isolating, so Peter talks about why he thinks this is exactly when you need broader perspectives, mentors, and peer input. Plus, he shares the view he has for keeping pace with the changes in security.
