If you haven’t had one of your social media accounts hacked, you certainly know someone who has. It’s pretty obvious that the social-ification of the web has made the Internet a much more dangerous place. Not only can malware spread more quickly and efficiently, but hackers have access to far more personal data–and that allows them to abuse the trust that you have in your online social connections. While this is kind of scary on an individual level, it’s much more frightening for large companies and organizations. Riskive is a Baltimore, MD based company that sees what’s happening. That’s why they’ve built an “enterprise grade security technology dedicated to identifying, monitoring and preventing risk across the socially connected enterprise.”
The big idea behind Riskive is that hackers no longer need to target weaknesses in systems. Socially connected users are far easier to compromise, so why not trick someone into doing something instead of hacking to find a way to do it on your own? Riskive doesn’t post the details of their security solutions on their website, which makes sense considering the field that they’re in. While you can’t read up on exactly what they do, you can check out their News page to get a sense for why they’re generating so much buzz lately (this includes being named the Maryland Incubator Company of the Year for 2013). The buzz also includes an article about how Riskive is going on a hiring spree. It turns out that Riskive’s Careers page is a little light on jobs–Software Developer is the only position suitable for a new or recent grad–but they have a ton of internships. At a company like Riskive, internships can often turn into permanent positions, so take a look at their positions in Entrepreneurship Immersion, Development, UX/UI Design, Research, Innovation, Human Capital, Marketing & Sales, Operations, and Community and Partnerships. They even allow you to create your own internship if you have a good idea. It’s unclear if the internships are paid.
