I have the pleasure of leading the Avast Red Team, a specialized unit dedicated to protecting our business applications, products and network infrastructures. You could say my team is all business, literally. We keep our clients’ data safe by using offensive techniques for defensive purposes. Specifically, we continually perform penetration testing and security assessments of Avast systems and applications in which we store customer information to minimize the risk of unauthorized access and data breach. But strong, effective security needs more than just advanced technology. It also requires that personnel be trained in security measures and procedures.
