EFF Welcomes Back Technology Director Chris Palmer

EFF is pleased to welcome yet another new addition to our team: Technology Director Chris Palmer. Chris is hardly a newcomer, however -- he's a former EFF technologist who is returning to the EFF fold after several years in the technology industry focusing on application security.

Most recently, Chris worked as a Senior Software Engineer at Google on securing the Android operating system for mobile devices. Before that, he was a Principal Security Consultant at iSEC Partners, a security engineering consultancy, where he hacked a wide variety of applications and platforms. Chris also worked as a developer at web app shops in San Francisco and Minneapolis, in addition to his previous tenure as an EFF Staff Technologist.

Chris is a security engineering expert, who has presented at various conferences including Black Hat, DefCon, and Web 2.0 Expo. You'll be hearing a lot from him about security issues on our blog and elsewhere. Welcome Chris!
