Runa Sandvik got her first computer at age 15. Her interest in puzzles grew into breaking its functions and in making a computer do things it was not intended to do, which led her to hacker space. Eventually working for the nonprofit digital privacy group Tor Project led her into considering what computers could do for people. She weaponized her knowledge about information security and hacking to support, defend and empower journalists.

She is a feminine force in an all-male field.
