Hacking for Good: Jennifer Arcuri
Hacker House is a place for young people at a crossroads. The cybersecurity consultancy attracts young hackers who have started dabbling in breaching code, and trains them in the art of ethical hacking.
It’s the latest in a series of ventures for California entrepreneur Jennifer Arcuri, who founded the Infotech Summit to encourage entrepreneurs, policymakers and investors to discuss and shape tech policy. A former film student who started in digital distribution and film production, Jennifer has previously run a video streaming platform and produced a short film that was sold at the Cannes Film Festival.
