Twitter Is Holding A Security Open House Next Week

Want to meet Twitter’s security team in person and hear about what they’re working on right now? Maybe scope out opportunities to join the Twitter flock? Well, you can’t because the event is full, but here’s what you’ll miss . . .

Next Thursday, March 29 from 5:30 – 9 p.m. (PT), Twitter’s security team will be presenting on a host of security-style topics at Twitter HQ. Here’s the lineup as posted on the Twitter Engineering blog:

  • Neil Daswani (@neildaswani): Online fraud and mobile application abuse
  • Jason Wiley (@capnwiley) & Dino Fekaris (@dino): Twitter phishing vectors and the fallout
  • Neil Matatall (@nilematotle): Brakeman: detecting security vulnerabilities in Ruby on Rails applications via static analysis

We’ll keep an eye out for upcoming events and try to let you know before they fill up next time! Doh. In the meantime, follow the #TwitterSec hashtag for more Twitter-specific security info.
