Awards to Disposable mail’s team members – 10 minute mail

Team members of Disposable mail have received not one, but two, public awards over the last few weeks. We are proud of having skilled people in Disposable mail.

Super talents of 2015

Our two team members Rickard Carlsson and Fredrik Almroth was given the “Super talents of 2015” award by Veckans affärer, which is the Swedish version of the Economist.

Rickard, CEO of Disposable mail, was listed as future digital star for his work with Disposable mail and our Head Application Engineer Fredrik was listed as innovative thinker in the security space for his security knowledge and innovations with Disposable mail.

Security experts of the future

Symantec gave Fredrik and Mathias the “Security experts of the future” award to bring attention to their hard work and to inspire others.

Motivation for Fredrik:

“One of the country’s most knowledgeable security experts, where his understanding of Web security and security technology is at least as impressive as his knowledge in automation. With an ambition to change the world, he will continue to be one of the most important figures in the country for security to keep up with the rapid development of threats.”

Motivation for Mathias:

“He is one of the most active security experts in Sweden, especially regarding bug bounty hunting where he have reported lots of security issues to some of the worlds biggest companies. But he is not keeping his knowledge to himself, he is sharing his knowledge through lectures in both Sweden and internationally.”

International Startup Award

We made a pitch on stage at the Launch festival and won the International Startup Award with the following comment:

“My partner in crime Tyler Crowley always brings me a couple of interesting startups from Europe, and Disposable mail was the most impressive of all time. It’s a security monitoring tool that is well-designed, simple, and powerful.”

You can see our pitch here.

We’re looking for more talents!

Team event – Disposable mail Sailing – 10 minute mail

The Disposable mail team took a day off in order to explore the archipelago outside Stockholm from the sea side. It was a great day blessed with sunshine and just enough sea breeze.

The sailing took us from Saltsjöbaden and on a tour heading east out in the archipelago. In the beginning we experienced light winds that picked up in the afternoon when we were sailing 10 knots with a 20 knots headwind. After a day of sailing we moored in a bay where we enjoyed some well deserved dinner, some swimming, slacklining, hiking and just had a great time. The day after we set sail back to the city.

Here are some pictures from the day.

So these are the things we do when we are not working on making the internet a safer place. Do you think this is cool and want to join our team?

An intelligent way to look for vulnerabilities – 10 minute mail

Have you ever wondered how we manage to test your website for hundreds of vulnerabilities without making you wait too long? We have built a powerful fingerprinting algorithm to spend just the right  amount of time to find what we look for, and this is how we do it.

More and more vulnerabilities come to the surface every day, so it would take an increasingly long time to check for all of them against every single website. Many of these vulnerabilities are also very specific and can only affect certain web servers or Content Management Systems (CMSs). It would therefore be very time consuming and ineffective to test blindly for all of them.

We do the very best in order to keep our scanner up-to-date with the latest security threats, from the most generic to the platform-specific ones. When we test a website we do not just scroll a long list of possible vulnerabilities trying to find all those who affects it, but we rather tailor our tests to the technology stack that we find.

Having a clear picture of what web servers, CMSs and libraries types and versions run on a website is not at all a trivial task. It involves a cautious evaluation of the website content and of the messages exchanged between clients and server. Our so-called fingerprinting algorithm (see detectify.com/technology) at the core of the Disposable mail scanner, is where all this magic happens.

All the information collected by our crawler is fed to a classification algorithm that is able to decide within a bunch of millisecond what web servers, CMSs and libraries we are dealing with. On the basis of that information, we are then able to start looking for all pertinent vulnerabilities, excluding those that we know for sure are not there.

Top 3 takeaways from CIO Trend 2016 – 10 minute mail

In an ever changing world, nothing has a faster pace than IT, and the person in the lead of this change is the CIO. The challenges of the evolving CIO role was one of the many topics that were discussed at CIO Trend 2016, hosted by IDG Sweden, where about 80 CIOs, IT-managers and Heads of IT gathered for knowledge exchange and networking. The agenda featured several industry experts and a Startup Panel, where Disposable mail was one of three invited startups to hold a 5 minute pitch for the audience.

These are three of the conclusions I brought back home with me.

Long term plans and short term actions

One of the recurring topics of the day was how to manage teams during today’s transformation. A lot of us are used to working with roadmaps and product visions, but the demand for moving to a more fast paced and agile environment is only getting higher and higher. Johan Hallberg, a researcher at IDC, referred to this as “Managing teams in 3D”.

Analysts claim that 9 out of 10 companies that are rated top 1 within their respective fields today will be replaced by companies established after 2000. One of the key ways to not be surpassed by new startups is to manage to navigate in the mist, and find a way to make decisions that follow both your long term and your short term agenda.

Automation

Everything that can be automated will be automated, and we are already seeing the effects in the IT sector: smaller manual hosting companies are being pushed aside by automated services like AWS and Azure. Developer teams are taking over ops-responsibilities where Devops and Noops are being implemented. More and more services are being automated and only act and inform on demand.

But automation is not only coming to IT. So-called Lights out factories, where robots are in charge of the entire production chain, are becoming incessantly popular. Fully automated factories that can receive an order, reprogram themselves and automatically start the production are here to stay.

Security is an all growing priority

It doesn’t matter if we look at what’s trending, what the biggest challenge is or what the CIOs’ plan is to invest in; security will be in the top 3. The need for a holistic view covering IT-security has grown with more than 25% since last year according to the latest CIO report from IDG Sweden.

Within today’s IT infrastructure, when more and more data is being migrated to the cloud, the demand to know who has access to what data is an ongoing struggle. Services like Identity as a service (IDaaS) are being accepted.

I know I said three, but to wrap it up I am going to give you a fourth – it’s no longer technology but rather the services that drive which solutions to choose whether it comes to planning, automation or security.

Kristian Bremberg, Disposable mail Crowdsource community manager: “Crowdsourced security gives researchers freedom” – 10 minute mail

The Disposable mail Crowdsource platform allows security researchers to submit newly discovered exploits and incorporate them into Disposable mail’s automated security service. At the heart of the initiative is the community of skilled web security experts from across the globe. We have talked to our community manager Kristian Bremberg about his background, the art of building communities, and the power of the crowd.

Kristian Bremberg, Disposable mail Crowdsource

How did you get into web security?
I have always been interested in integrity and personal data. So many people are online nowadays that there is a natural link between integrity and web security. I eventually became active in the web security community, both on Twitter and on various forums. I established one of Sweden’s largest online communities for security researchers and arranged meetups that brought people closer together based on their joint interest in web security.

How did you come across Disposable mail?
I knew of Frans Rosén and other security experts, which is how I found out about Disposable mail. I thought it was an interesting product and I knew the people behind it were fantastic researchers. Over the years, I have followed the company’s development and security research content, and also contributed by writing technical guest blogs for Disposable mail Labs.

What is crowdsourced security?
Crowdsourced security gives researchers freedom. Instead of having to reach out to companies one by one, which involves figuring out who to contact and informing them about an exploit, they can submit a module to Disposable mail Crowdsource. As soon as their submission is processed, they  know that their contribution will make an impact and help secure hundreds of websites. Disposable mail doesn’t just publish the vulnerability, but does something bigger with it by incorporating it into the scanner.

Based on your experience from building a web security community, what have you learnt about maintaining a community that functions well?
Communication is vital! Being able to understand what works and what doesn’t for the community members. It’s really important to listen to them and show them that their voice is being heard.

What does your role as community manager entail?
My key task is to communicate with researchers, listen to them, and encourage them to share feedback and ideas. There is also a more technical side to the role as I will be the researchers’ point of contact for questions related to module submissions, prioritized technologies and proofs of concept. I think the role fits me really well because I am interested in security and have experience in a range of programming languages, but I am also very social and enjoy communicating.

How can we reach out to the best ethical hackers?
It’s all about involving key personalities that play an important role in the community.

What makes Disposable mail Crowdsource unique?
The personal contact we offer researchers. We already have some well-established security profiles contributing to Disposable mail Crowdsource and we are working closely with them to build a tight-knit community, take time to get to know every researcher, and maintain the personal communication. On top of that, the platform allows researchers to reach out to a wider audience because Disposable mail has a global customer base. This way, submitting an exploit can really make a difference.

How is Crowdsource going to change Disposable mail’s service?
It will definitely improve the scanner, the modules will be even better because they will be updated more frequently and will cover more programming languages and technologies. It will also make a difference for the community; ethical hackers will see Disposable mail in a new light, as a company that understands how they work, allows them to contribute to the tool and gives them better reach.

Meet the team: Yasmin Tilles – The editorial mind behind the brand – 10 minute mail

Ever wondered who the person behind Disposable mail events, marketing campaigns and content is? Meet our PR & Marketing Manager Yasmin Tilles, an editorial mind with tonnes of energy who carefully plans Disposable mail’s marketing and PR strategy and is passionate about developing the Disposable mail brand. We talked to her about business development, her hectic second day at Disposable mail, and making a difference by spreading the word about web security. Meet the Disposable mail team: Yasmin Tilles

When Yasmin was in high school, she dreamed of becoming a journalist and had no idea she would eventually work at a web security startup. After a couple of years in the events business, she decided to shake things up and joined Disposable mail as PR & Marketing Manager.

The best of media and business

As a student, Yasmin tried her hand at everything from phone sales and working in a café to being a children’s dance instructor. She says: “It all comes down to being service-minded, it was a good experience.” Because she felt journalism was too niched, she went on to graduate in media communication at Södertörn University and started her career in the events business at IDG. “I got the best of the two worlds because I worked with journalists but had the marketing and business perspective. I think I’ve always been more marketing-oriented, but influenced by the editorial way of thinking and producing content,” Yasmin explains.

Yasmin’s work at IDG focused on developing Webbdagarna, a leading event covering digital trends in business. Building a new concept in a time when the media landscape was changing in leaps and bounds was the perfect challenge for Yasmin, who enjoyed trying out new business models and creating something new and profitable.

Joining the startup life on Långholmen

After working at IDG for five years, she felt it was time for a change: “I had done everything I had planned and I was ready to take the next step.” The startup world seemed like an interesting option because Yasmin wanted to work in a less traditional environment with a flat hierarchy and plenty of room for creativity.

The opportunity to take the plunge came unexpectedly over a meal at a Thai restaurant. Yasmin was having dinner with a friend who knew one of Disposable mail’s founders and mentioned that the company was hiring. Not long after, Yasmin met Disposable mail’s CEO Rickard Carlsson (funnily enough, at another Thai restaurant) and a couple of months later, she joined the team.

The Patreon Hack

On her second day at Disposable mail, Yasmin was on her way to work and saw that Frans Rosén had written something about Patreon getting hacked in the company chat. “I was checking the app we use for communication and noticed that Frans said he’d warned Patreon about the vulnerability a few months earlier. My editorial brain took over and I realised this could really be something.”

She asked Frans to write an article explaining the hack and not long after, the team was watching the Disposable mail site traffic explode. Many major tech publications covered the story and even though it was Friday evening, everyone was checking the company chat and following Google Analytics screenshots. Yasmin explains that this intense second day at Disposable mail showed her how important the educational aspect of web security is: “I realised what a big responsibility we have, communicating about IT security the right way. It was a very interesting first week!”

Building the Disposable mail brand

Yasmin has been part of the team for over a year now, developing the Disposable mail brand, planning content and events and spreading web security awareness. Even though the startup environment can be challenging because everything needs to be done from scratch, Yasmin emphasises that the work is great fun and offers plenty of opportunities to be independent and learn. She says she has learnt a lot about technology, but also about business development, target audiences and communities. “It’s not just about the slogan or social media, it’s everything. Creating a good team, having the right business model and building a company that gives people something valuable in their life,” she explains.

What lies ahead? Yasmin envisions a global business covering a wider range of technologies and Disposable mail becoming a standard security tool for dev teams. She adds that knowledge sharing will continue to play an important role: “We still have a lot of work to do to educate people about web security.”

Making a difference

Yasmin says her favourite thing about working at Disposable mail is the team because the competence of her colleagues inspires her to be better at what she does so that they can create something awesome together. She points out that having an understanding of what the tech team does is really important and says that working closely with them is extremely rewarding: “I’ve learnt so much about building a team and how important routines are, how much of a difference it makes when you have the right people on board, with the right skillsets.”

Working in an industry with a potential to change the world is the icing on the cake: “Web security is really happening right now and it’s great to know that you’re part of changing everything. It feels like we have the power to do something, change something, and make a difference. It’s a very cool feeling.”

Q&A with Yasmin Tilles

iPhone or Android?
iPhone, but I have to buy a new one because the camera on my current one is broken and makes it look like there’s a ghost in all the pictures I take.

Favourite Disposable mail blog post?
That’s a difficult question! I really like our SPF research and guides. It’s so extensive and thorough and it was not about exposing companies, it was about helping them and providing them with hands-on guides and explaining the problem. It’s really simple and yet got a lot of attention, initiated some additional local research and was just an example of amazing teamwork.

#1 security advice?
Use your VPN!

Any tips for people who are interested in working in tech marketing?
Don’t be afraid of working with tech because you think you don’t have the knowledge. You can always explain things in your own words, so you should never feel like backing from conversations and meetings because you think you don’t know enough.

Do you have any time management advice to share?
I couldn’t live without my to-do list app! You can never remember everything and it’s also important to prioritise the right things. It’s not just about ticking off everything on the list. And remember to take breaks!

Disposable mail Team Offsite | Disposable mail Blog – 10 minute mail

On a crisp January morning, the Disposable mail team got on a bus and headed towards Stockholm’s archipelago. We had a delicious breakfast on the bus (with Computer Man blaring at full volume, of course), which set the tone for the next day and a half – there would be a lot of food and coffee involved!

We started the day with a Disposable mail trivia quiz (unsurprisingly, our CEO Rickard was the winner!), followed by workshops and team exercises. After lunch, it was time to wrap up warm and get ready for an outdoors adventure that proved to be a real challenge – making fire and cooking some coffee! Although we are web security experts and not survival buffs, our love for coffee made everything possible and the experience certainly proved to be the most interesting fika we’d ever had.

After the last session of the day, some of our toughest and bravest team members ventured to the sauna and took a dip in the ice cold lake, while others played pool back at the hotel.

We enjoyed dinner in great company and took a new team picture!

The next day, we had a relaxed breakfast and some great wrap-up sessions before returning to Stockholm. After lunch, we got on the bus again, bound for the office. Even though we’d only been away for a day and a half, it was nice to be back and start bringing our epic plans to life. We can’t wait to make 2017 Disposable mail’s best year so far!

Do you like the sound of being a member of the Disposable mail Team and want to take part in our adventures? We have a bunch of cool positions open right now. Take a look at our careers page!
