Twitter Worked to Employ Security Engineers Before the Hack

Few months before the unfortunate Twitter hack, the company had made efforts to employ some professionals in cybersecurity.

Information available on the company’s jobs site shows that Twitter advertised vacancies for security professionals some months ago.

Adverts were placed on the job site two months ago for experts in company security. The exact positions are for a senior infrastructure security engineer, two senior application security engineers, senior security engineer, staff product manager for security and data protection and many others. There is a possibility that these positions are yet to be filled.

As for the one who would apply for the post of a security engineer, the company said:

“As a Security Engineer, you’ll join a team of engineers working to reduce security risk across the company. We work collaboratively with other teams to identify risks with security impact to the company, communicate that impact to teams and management, and engineer solutions.”

The company also spelt out the expectations they have for a cybersecurity personnel:

“When performing investigations into suspicious activity, your skills will help us to analyze events to figure out “what happened,” document our findings, and determine the best course of remediation.”

For now, Twitter is yet to say the weak point the hackers used to gain entry into their account.
