Meet Our Founder & CEO
Katie Moussouris founded Luta Security in 2016 fresh off the heels of launching Hack the Pentagon, the first ever bug bounty of the US government. She named her company after the local nickname of the CHamoru island of Rota, where her mother was born in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, a US Territory. Katie was born and raised in Boston, MA and was encouraged by her biochemist mother to study science. Her father was a Greek immigrant jeweler who taught her valuable lessons about running a bootstrapped profitable business. Katie fosters a company culture of equity and healthy boundaries, with all Luta Security FTEs paid for full time work with a 32-hour 4-day work week. She has grown Luta Security proving that businesses can be profitable by putting people first.
