Sr. Ruby on Rails Web Developer
In today’s world, as individuals and business, we are all globally more connected than at any time in the past. Our sensitive personal and medical information, our finances, our best ideas and intellectual property, and much, much more are all “out there.”
This vital data is moved around the web every day, through its networks and in and out of databases and stores connected to one another around the globe. In fact, most of what defines us as individuals and businesses is online and vulnerable to theft, exploit and damage. HackSurfer helps you protect yourself and your business by providing detailed, up-to-the-minute data on what’s really affecting your cyber world, your cyber “you.”
HackSurfer is the web’s sentinel for critical cyber threats and attacks. Always listening and watching, we continuously monitor the internet’s social media and thousands of other sources for cyber security and cyber crime content and report what we learn in simple, usable ways. Advanced HackSurfer “big data” analytics crunch through the vast amount of the web’s constantly-changing information not only to make sense of what’s happening in the world right now, but to help you predict how cyber crime could affect the future of your business, your money and all the other things in life you care about most.
HackSurfer is a well-funded startup with offices in Maryland and Florida.
