Security Engineer, Snap Inc.
Savanah Frisk is a Security Engineer on the Application Security team at Snap Inc. She leverages her background in Cognitive Science and Security Awareness to approach enterprise platform security from a human perspective, eliminating complexity to make secure development the default decision. The lens she brings to the “security as a service” discussion is formed by topics in human cognition and decision making. Decision Fatigue and the difficulty in building habits are both common issues discussed in Cognitive Science and are now making waves in the world of security. Offering secure by default choices, erasing entire chains of decision making for engineers, and building good security habits through supportive tooling are crucial tools to the success of a security engineering team. She is an engaging presenter, has presented at medium scale security conferences and runs “the most actually fun security training” at Snap.
