New LAI Exclusive Speaker From Facebook: Alex Stamos


Leading Authorities is very excited to announce our exclusive representation of Alex Stamos, former Chief Security Officer of Facebook, for lectures. At Facebook, Stamos led a threat intelligence team tasked with monitoring and mitigating security risks to the Facebook network of 2.5 billion people. The New York Times called Stamos “a celebrated figure in privacy and security circles,” and Tech Crunch said he is “widely regarded as one of the smartest people working in the security space.” Stamos is currently an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University, where his research focuses on international security and cooperation.

A cyber security expert, business leader, and entrepreneur who has spent his career improving the security and safety of the internet, he also formerly served as Chief Information Security Officer at Yahoo. Stamos helps groups think through questions around safeguarding information and infrastructure, building a trustworthy company, and what ‘information warfare’ means in 2019.

During Stamos’ time at Facebook, he led the company’s investigation into manipulation of the 2016 US election and helped pioneer several successful protections against these new classes of abuse. According to The New York Times, through that work he became known for his role as a “strong advocate inside [Facebook] for investigating and disclosing Russian activity on Facebook.”  

In speeches, he touches on that time and lessons learned. For more information, read his Washington Post op-ed about the Facebook experience.

Stamos was recently interviewed at a major technology conference at Stanford. Watch the video below to see him in action:
