Back when CNET published photos of Google's fun-loving security team, pirate flags were waving. Darth Vader stood sentinel inside the Googleplex by the security cubicles.
Today Douglas Merrill Google VP Engineering published an impassioned defense of Google's security policy.
No Star Wars plans for Google security hacks.
No pirate flags, mateys. Aye, Merrill didn't even use "Talk Like A Pirate Day" language.
The most important part of our approach to security is our people. Google employs some of the best and brightest security engineers in the world. Many of our engineers came from very high-profile security environments, such as banks, credit card companies, and high-volume retail organizations, and a large number of them hold PhDs and patents in security and software engineering.
With Google under increased scrutiny as The Spy Who Loved Me, information security has never been more important to Google's future.
