Slack Security with Ryan Huber

Security for the popular chat application Slack is a major focus for the company. A corporate Slack account is as valuable to a hacker as a corporate email account. In today’s episode, Ryan Huber and I talk through Slack’s approach to security–from philosophical discussions of how to company approaches security to the technical practices of logging and monitoring, and why Slack has a separate Amazon Web Services account just for the security team.
Ryan works on security at Slack and has written a Medium post called Distributed Security Alerting, that I recommend checking out. If you haven’t heard it, you might also like the previous episode we did about Slack’s Architecture, with Keith Adams from Slack.
