“Breaking and Entering: The Extraordinary Story of a Hacker Called ‘Alien,'” Sherri Davidoff, an MIT hacker turned cybersecurity CEO of LMG (Lake Missoula Group)


“We break into companies and write reports about it.”

The book ranges from her time at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she participated in physical hacking exploits as well as computer work, to early days testing the physical security of bank branches, through to the founding of LMG Security, her Missoula-based company with clients around the world, which she runs while raising a family.

Davidoff offers an eye-catching description for the company, now 10 years old with 25 employees:

“We break into companies and write reports about it,” she said. If a company is hacked, LMG will “come in, get them cleaned up. We handle the investigation.” They also provide cybersecurity testing and training and digital forensics.

    Finally got a chance to read this book. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. Wonderful Montana story of a highly successful women in a male dominated industry. I highly recommend this to anyone with a computer, phone, or anything that plugs into a wall socket. The future is here and it knows everything about you.
