You may not know who Jonathan Zdziarski is, but he has been one of the leading voices in discussions of iOS security for the last few years. He is sharp and smart, and now he’s working for Apple’s Security Engineering and Architecture team.
This decision marks the conclusion of what I feel has been a matter of conscience for me over time. Privacy is sacred; our digital lives can reveal so much about us - our interests, our deepest thoughts, and even who we love. I am thrilled to be working with such an exceptional group of people who share a passion to protect that.
So even if you don’t know who Zdziarski is, know this: Apple hiring him makes all of Apple’s stuff that much more secure. And that’s good for all of us.
