Building a Learning Culture

Imagine yourself in the following situation. You know your team, their strengths and their weaknesses. You know which members need to improve and in which areas.

ShuttleCloud’s Felix Lopez joins the Google Security Hall of Fame!

Felix Lopez, a developer at ShuttleCloud, found a critical security vulnerability in Google’s Groups/Mailing List software. The vulnerability was specifically in the Groups Settings API and, if not fixed, private Google group archives could have been made public and browsable by employees, for example, and even by the public in some cases. Google immediately fixed this security issue and awarded Felix with a Google Security Reward.

Felix has joined the Hall of Fame many years before it’s time to hang his jersey from ShuttleCloud’s rafters.

ShuttleCloud is proud to have a team member listed in this prestigious group. For the complete list, check out Google’s Security Hall of Fame page.
