Apple Hires Security Researcher Jonathan Zdziarski

Forensic data analysis expert, iOS security researcher and former jailbreak developer Jonathan Zdziarski has officially joined Apple. Zdziarski announced today he accepted a position with Apple’s Security Engineering and Architecture team, but it’s unclear when he might be starting work at Apple. Zdziarski, who at times could be critical of Apple’s security efforts, says he’s joined the iPhone maker because he’s so passionate about protecting the security and privacy of others.

“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,” he wrote.
“I’m pleased to announce that I’ve accepted a position with Apple’s Security Engineering and Architecture team, and am very excited to be working with a group of like minded individuals so passionate about protecting the security and privacy of others.
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.”
It’s certainly a big hire for Apple, who has doubled down on security over recent years.

We fully expect him to stop tweeting and commenting on Apple’s security efforts now that he’s officially part of the company’s Security Engineering and Architecture team.
