Riot Security Engineers and Analysts hold an in-depth knowledge of specific areas of expertise. We don't just focus on breaking things; we support teams across Riot to develop security capabilities which help protect player experiences. We relish the opportunity to work with new tech stacks and product teams, each with their own unique security risk profile. At the most fundamental level, their goal is to help provide value to players and make life harder for troublemakers.

Our Security Operations (SecOps) team monitors and analyzes Riot’s security efforts across the organization and for our players. Their mission is to quickly detect and respond to threat actors across the globe. Their ability to not only think critically when it comes to security threats, but technically by developing tools (e.g. automate security processes) is necessary to their success. From working closely with local and federal law enforcement agencies around security incidents to defending against the next DDoS, they are here to protect Riot and our players.
