The Trust and Safety team is a sub department of the Security Team at GitLab that forms part of the Security Operations subdepartment in Security at GitLab Inc and are tasked with the mitigation of Abuse on gitlab.com.
Our mission is to help build and maintain user trust, while keeping the GitLab platform safe and harm-free to help enable everyone to contribute.
We aim to achieve this by building a culture of care, protection, and a respect for privacy. We aim to stop the "bad" while also enabling the "good".
Our vision for GitLab Trust and Safety is to build a team and tooling capable of achieving both accuracy and scale in our work.
We want to make our corner of the internet a little safer, but also be the best internet citizens we can be by helping to detect and report abuse externally.
