If we take the company’s construction site as a reference, Twitter had openly searched for security positions in the months leading up to the hack this week.
Based on the company’s job search, Twitter Publicity Two months ago, there were several important job descriptions related to corporate security. The company hired (and still appears to be) a senior security engineer for infrastructure, a senior security engineer, two senior security engineers for applications, and a product human resources manager for security and privacy, among others.
A job description for one of these positions focuses on reducing security risks throughout the company:
“As a security engineer, you will join a team of engineers who work to reduce security risk across the organization. We work with other teams to identify risks that impact company security, communicate those impacts to the teams, management and design solutions. “.
Another job stressed the right answer to cyber security threats:
“By conducting investigations into suspicious activity, your skills help us analyze events, find out what happened, document our results, and determine the best remedies.”
In the meantime, Twitter has not yet released to the public what hackers have exploited. Cointelegraph has asked Twitter for a comment, but has not received a response in time for publication.
