Hey, I'm Lizzie Dixon. I'm a computer security researcher living in San Francisco and writing about vulnerabilities and software projects.
Like what I write? Interested how I could help with your company or project? I do consulting work, typically for growing startups. Here's what that usually looks like:
- A one- or two-week-long engagement to get you off on the right foot security-wise. I'll explore your codebase for vulnerabilities and help your team understand the kinds of issues that threaten your company and product.
- A periodic engagement, often quarterly or monthly, where I review particular areas of code, read pull requests, and address outstanding concerns.
We'll also schedule longer, one-off engagements as bigger projects come up. Throughout this all I'll work to document my findings and recommendations and help you build a strong, security-aware team and culture.
I'd love to discuss any of this over coffee. You can reach me at email@example.com. ☕
