Bejtlich Joining MANDIANT as CSO and Security Services Architect

In June 2007 I posted that I was joining General Electric as Director of Incident Response. Since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n I helped build and lead GE-CIRT from an "army of one" into a team of 40 analysts. It was an honor and a privilege to work with my team, but today I am announcing that I've accepted a new challenge.

Effective 1 April I will be Chief Security Officer and Security Services Architect for MANDIANT, where I will build teams, tools, and capabilities to provide managed detection and response services. You can read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 press release at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 MANDIANT Web site or Businesswire if you're so inclined, as well as a MANDIANT blog post.

I am really looking forward to this new opportunity. I worked for Kevin Mandia in 2002-2004 with Foundstone and for Travis Reese in 2004-2005 at ManTech International Corp.'s CFIA division. When I left ManTech to concentrate 100% on TaoSecurity, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first consulting I did was for Red Cliff, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 precursor to MANDIANT. I also know many current members of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 MANDIANT team from those three roles and subsequent relationships.

I believe in MANDIANT's mission and vision, which is important to me. While I enjoyed defending one enterprise with my old team, at MANDIANT I will be able to assist multiple organizations. As a member of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 MANDIANT executive team I will also help set cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 direction for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 company and will be able to work with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 product, consulting, training, and managed services groups.

While many of you are familiar with MANDIANT's famous incident response consulting force, you may not be aware that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 company continues to build a managed services team to provide dedicated, long-term detection and response options. By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second quarter I expect my colleagues and I in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 security services group to be announcing new job opportunities for those who enjoy hunting digital intruders. MANDIANT is already hiring aggressively for security talent, so keep your eyes on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 job site for more information.

As you might expect, I plan to continue writing TaoSecurity Blog and sending TaoSecurity Tweets. I will still provide training such as TCP/IP Weapons School, but I expect to keep cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same low number of classes as was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 case with my previous employer. Currently I will be teaching at GTEC in DC on 31 May - 1 June, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n at Black Hat USA 30-31 July and again on 1-2 August. Two classes for USENIX this summer are still in coordination.

I enjoyed interacting with all of you over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last four years wearing my old hat, and I look forward to staying in touch via social media and at conferences in my new role! Thank you.

Congradulations! I might have selected April 4 instead of April 1 as a start date though. ;)
