Introducing Our Security Team

Billions of people around the world use Facebook to connect with their friends, families, and communities. Our Security team helps make sure our platforms offer safe environments for people to message loved ones, build businesses, raise funds for causes they believe in, and more. Supporting our global community is a tremendous responsibility that requires continuous improvement of and investment in our tools and talent. People who work on our Security team use the latest technology and collaborate with others across our world-class team to solve problems of unprecedented scale.

How We Work

At Facebook, we take what’s called a approach to security. This means we layer a number of protections to make sure we prevent and address vulnerabilities in our code from multiple angles. The Security team responds to security issues and proactively looks for opportunities and new ways to strengthen our defenses so we can counter emerging threats and stay ahead of our adversaries.
From building the coding frameworks to help engineers build secure code to developing automated detection tools to help spot bugs at scale to running one of the oldest programs in the industry to working alongside product teams to build security into each feature, our team is committed to finding, fixing, and preventing bugs across our platform.

Security Engineering

Our Security Engineering organization is centralized around four areas: prevention; detection and response; measurement and validation; and program and operations. Our prevention pillar proactively reduces a potential attacker’s ability to compromise our data or systems. Once an attacker compromises our environment, our detection and response pillar diminishes the harm by immediately detecting and responding to the threat. The measurement and validation pillar independently evaluates our prevention, detection, and response efforts to ensure they are in line with our risk, and avoid regression. Lastly, our program and operations pillar streamlines communication, drives engagement, and optimizes processes for both internal and external security initiatives.

Locations

From security engineers and data scientists to penetration testers and forensics engineers, our team comprises people with diverse backgrounds and skillsets. The Security team is dispersed across Facebook's offices around the world—London, Seattle, New York, Singapore, and Washington DC—to ensure we approach every challenge with a global view and can make an impact at scale and around the clock. But all our Security teams have one thing in common: we’re all working to create a safe and secure community.

Preparing For the Future

The Security organization at Facebook is focused on evolving and innovating our defenses to support Facebook’s mission of giving people the power to build community and bringing the world closer together. Our focus on finding, fixing, and preventing security issues has allowed us to continuously scale our defenses as Facebook has grown to support billions of people connecting with one another. And because we know that security work is never 100% finished, our Security team continues to innovate as the fg-s.community grows.

Meet a Few of Our Leaders

“Billions of people use Facebook and its family of products to connect with each other across multiple platforms every day. We have a responsibility to build secure services that keep their data safe. Doing this at a global scale across traditional and emerging platforms is challenging, and we embed ourselves across the company to ensure data protections are built into our code and products. Our central security teams focus on eliminating large classes of problems, in addition to solving individual ones, that make every engineer more effective at keeping security issues at bay. This work is incredibly creative—we look at a problem from every angle, whether it's building detection and prevention tools or implementing practices and protocols for fixing vulnerabilities when we find them.” —Pedro C., VP, Security and Privacy Engineering
“As a director in our Security organization, it’s my job to keep the bad actors out and preserve a safe space where people can feel empowered to build the same sort of community and connection that was instrumental in my life. My role as a security leader on the team is to help everyone lean in to their strengths, explore ideas, and take their thinking to the next level. I have seen first-hand how Facebook can change lives. It certainly changed mine, and I take pride in leading a team that is committed to protecting that space for everyone.” —Michele S., Director, Security at Facebook

My goal as a security engineering manager is to support security engineers in building high impact projects, to provide engineering mentorship, and to clear off any roadblocks so security engineers can scale their impact, leading to safer code development. I'm most excited about building out this team in our New York office.” —Ted R., Engineering Manager
