    Incident Report: TaskRouter JS SDK Security Incident - July 19, 2020 Incident Report_ TaskRouter July 2020.png

    Twilio believes the security of our customers’ accounts is of paramount importance and when an incident occurs that might threaten that security, we tell you about it.

    What happened?

    On Sunday July 19th, we became aware of a modification that had been made to a Javascript library that we host for our customers to include in their applications. A modified version of the TaskRouter JS SDK was uploaded to our site at 1:12 PM PDT (UTC-07:00). We received an alert about the modified file at approximately 9:20 PM PDT and replaced it on our site around 10:30 PM PDT.

    Ensuring Continuity in EU-U.S. Data Transfers for Twilio Customers Ensuring Continuity in EU-U.S. Data Transfers Header.png

    You may have heard or read that the European Court of Justice recently issued a ruling invalidating the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. Not surprisingly, this has caused concern on both sides of the Atlantic. Despite the decision, however, Twilio customers can continue to use all of our services in full compliance with European law.

    The Court’s decision means that one safeguard under which companies were allowed to transfer personal data from the EU to the United States — the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield — no longer exists. However, the Court left the other two available for companies to use.

    Twilio has prepared for this scenario well in advance of today’s ruling. Twilio’s Data Protection Addendum anticipated the possibility that Privacy Shield could be struck down and relies on overlapping data transfer safeguards. The Court’s ruling does not nullify Twilio’s primary data transfer mechanisms, Binding Corporate Rules and Standard Contractual Clauses. As a …

    Meet our Heroes: Twilio Champions Copy of Generic Blog Header 1-5.png

    It’s no secret that at Twilio we love developers.

    One way that our Women @ Twilio Employee Resource Group (inclusive of non-binary folks) chose to celebrate Women’s History Month was by highlighting the impact of some incredible Twilions who make our shared experience better with the work that they do. 

    Even as the current global crisis ramped up in recent weeks, dozens of nominations rolled in sharing stories of peers and leaders who we are extremely proud of and excited to celebrate. 

    Each work day this month we've featured the stories of one of these special individuals globally across various company-wide channels. Today, as Women’s History Month comes to a close, we’re excited to share some of these stories with you.

    Twilio Celebrates Black History Month BHM.jpg

    Black History Month is a celebration of the achievements and history of the members of the African Diaspora. There is a long history of innovation and courage in our history that often does not get the same time in the spotlight as other historical figures

    Black History Month in the US has its roots in the 1920s, when historian Carter Woodson created “Negro History Week”. He believed that preserving the stories of our history was key to survival and intellectual development, famously writing “if a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated.”

    Later on, members of the Black United Students group at Kent State University worked to expand Negro History Week into Black History Month, which was first celebrated in February of 1970. The celebration caught on quickly, and …
