Katie Paxton-Fear is a lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, she has a PhD in cyber security and machine learning from Cranfield University. But she’s more well known for her hobby, bug bounty hunting. Katie started out as a mentee at a live hacking event in June 2019 and she’s been hooked since. She’s found bugs in a range of organisations from the US Airforce to Verizon and Uber. She’s been all over the world pre-pandemic times at these live events. She realises how much mentoring meant to her on her journey so now sims to do the same for others, running a YouTube channel sharing all her tips and tricks, going deep in vulnerability explanations and educating others, to an audience of over 25,000 people.
