Alex Maestretti leads the Security Intelligence and Response Team at Netflix, with previous gigs at Apple and the US Government. Our SIRT reflects Netflix’s culture and technology stack. We have a small team of experienced professionals rather than a multitiered SOC, so we don’t do large volume alert monitoring and instead focus on high ROI activities. Our technology stack allows us to be agile in responding to security incidents, and recover quickly, which in turn allows smart risk taking. Overall our goal is to understand threats to Netflix equities through proactive intelligence, and buy down risk across a broad range of threats through incident response.
