Profiled: Mwende Window Snyder a.k.a Window Snyder

From time to time, I will profile an individual making great strides in the information security world.

I have followed Ms Snyder’s career since reading her book in 2006 titled “Threat Modeling”.

Mwende Window Snyder goes by Window Snyder. She is the Chief Security something-or-other (that’s what she has on her business card - the official title is Chief Security Officer) at Mozilla Foundation, the non-profit organization behind the popular Firefox browser.The daughter of a retired software engineer mom, Window co-founded a company that was sold to Symantec for US$49 million. She joined Mozilla last year. She is a rising star in geeky internet security circles. Here’s her full story on USA TODAY.
