Window Snyder

Window occupies an entirely unique
place in the security community. Sure, being a woman in the security
community is rare enough. But she also commands a lot of respect in
this ultra-competitive world, having helped develop Microsoft’s threat
modeling process, worked as a security architect at @stake and as the
top security exec at Mozilla. I’ve seen some of the smartest and most
well-respected researchers in the world ask her opinion on their talks
and papers at conferences.

well-respected researchers in the world ask her opinion on their talks
and papers at conferences. And even when she was at Microsoft or
Mozilla, she never was afraid to speak her mind and say what needed to
be said. I remember being in a conversation with Window years ago and
hearing a large gasp from the PR rep in the room when Window went off
the script and started talking about specific ways to improve Windows
security. The PR rep did not win that battle.
