“I joined Facebook as a Technical Security Analyst on our Security team, primarily focused on insider threat investigations. During my tenure, I've been able to leverage my digital forensics, investigation and data analysis skills to solve complex cases. Another big part of my role is improving detection systems and response capabilities to mitigate and defend against threats.
My career path into Information Security was somewhat unexpected, as I was recruited by Pricewaterh...ouseCoopers (PwC) as a Forensics Technology consultant right before graduating from Texas Lutheran University with my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. After discussing the role with the hiring manager, the allure of responding to breaches, helping clients around the world to identify and mitigate security risks, and using my knowledge in computer science to solve complex security challenges led me to join the team.
About three years ago I brought my unique skillset to Facebook. I've had the opportunity to lead several projects, ranging from implementing abuse detection on sensitive data systems to building specific threat models for critical parts of our infrastructure. In my daily work I also collaborate closely with our engineering teams in London and other parts of the world to improve and automate tools and tasks to increase our security operations and capabilities. I'm drawn to this field as I enjoy problem solving, and to me investigations are like puzzles; there's different nuggets and pieces that come together leading to a solution.
Facebook is really like no other place: I love the amazing culture and the people, and I love feeling empowered to work on projects I'm passionate about - that's what keeps me here! Something else I find unique and notable about the Security team and Facebook in general is how quickly various teams come together to work on important problems. It's quite impressive to work at such a fast-paced organization!” - Florentina, Abuse Investigator.
