Riot Games Dublin InfoSec Meetup

On July 9th, the Riot InfoSec team will be hosting a security event in our new office, which will include:



  • talks from Rioters
  • the chance for you to see and play with some of our security tools
  • time to play some games with us!
Riot is dedicated to positively engaging with the industry and its community, and the Riot InfoSec team are psyched to further that mission in Dublin - we want to share and to learn. If you work in Riot or engage with Rioters, you may hear the term “default to trust” and this is a huge part of our culture. It’s not just “talk”, it’s something that I see on a daily basis and to me, this is very special. I've linked two posts that touch on this aspect below -




As a result, we (in Riot InfoSec) wanted to “walk the walk” also and share some of our failings and successes, and learnings while building some relationships in the community.


The event will have three security talks from David Rook, myself and Peter Tillotson. We hope that these talks will give you an insight into -


  • how we approach application security
  • what we’ve learnt from trying to hire into InfoSec
  • our security-focused big data analysis
We would also like to give you the chance to check out some of our security tools we use. We will have several demo booths setup so you can play with these tools and learn more about the unique challenges we face at Riot.


Finally, did I mention that you can hang around and play games :D
