Facebook: Cultural Change Needed for Better Security

As an industry, security folks tend to play things close to the vest, but increasingly they need to be sharing information in the fight against a common enemy, says Chris Bream, director of information security, policy and risk at Facebook. The social media giant has created Threat Exchange, a place where companies can share information in an automated, scalable way with people who they trust.

How to prevent Facebook page attack? I've seen many Facebook page invasions recently and this is very harmful for a business. A single post can cause a huge damage for its brand. I'm concerned about that because my business website (Trusera) has been attacked before with DDoS attacks and I'm sure my Facebook page is also a potential target.

Is there anything we can do to improve the security and avoid breaches? We have a strong password, so this should not be a problem.

Exchanage It's nice to see Facebook stepping up in this regard. I think when it comes to being a technology leader, Facebook doesn't get as much credit as is due.

Some of that has to do with the fact the company hasn't been looking for recognition. But some of it also has to do with the fact that many people aren't noticing just how detailed they have been about building a custom security stack that others could probably benefit from.
