Hi @tysonc -
While I understand the Privacy First mantra, and try to follow that myself, I don’t fully understand your concerns here.
Primarily that is because there is no requirement for identifiable information to be shared here. Nor do users have to give information on their name or email details.
I can understand your point, if for example I posted a question since my actual full name is my username. That Identifies me, an adversary could then look me up in other systems or social media. However I could set username to a completely different unidentifiable sequence of characters.
In addition, we may ask users to share screenshots of their accounts, however that does not need to include information that could identify them, if there is any identifiable information we need, we can take the thread to a ticket, or users can DM a New Relic staff member with that information.
A select group of New Relic staff (The technical support team) have access to see forum user’s email addresses, such that we can get tickets open under the right user email address, or we can look up account details to assist troubleshooting, file feature ideas against the users who log them…
If you have concerns that New Relic systems are insecure and that it may open an avenue of attack when our agents are installed on your apps, I would like to alleviate that concern. We take product, and account security very seriously, with a team dedicated to managing our’s and our customer’s security quite stringently. If there’s any additional concern on that front, let me know and I’ll be happy to chat about it.
