Lecturer Google’s “Security Princess” Parisa Tabriz
Parisa Tabriz is Google's "Security Princess" - that's her real job title! She has worked on information security at Google for almost a decade, starting as a "hired hacker" software engineer for Google's security team. As an engineer, she found and closed security holes in Google's web applications, and taught other engineers how to do the same. Today, Parisa manages Google's Chrome security engineering team, whose goal is to make Chrome the most secure browser and keep users safe as they surf the web. In 2012, she was selected by Forbes as one of the 30 under 30 pioneers in technology and has the rare distinction of being profiled by both ELLE and Wired in the same year. In 2014, she used her vacation to work with the White House U.S. Digital Service to enhance security of government technology. When she's not hacking, she likes to make things (art, food, miscellaneous DIY projects) or escape Silicon Valley to go hiking and rock climbing in the mountains.
