Chris Hallenbeck is CISO for the Americas at Tanium. Chris provides security leadership and operational insight gained from over 20 years in both public and private sector. Chris came to Tanium after almost 7 years of government service at the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). At US-CERT he designed and built their incident response capabilities, and restructured the team’s focus toward strategic remediation with a goal of building more resilient organizations. Over countless IR engagements both with government and private sector victims a common theme emerged: a lack of emphasis on IT security hygiene. Prior to joining US-CERT, Chris worked for RSA Security/EMC as a security engineer and with AOL/Time Warner on their global incident response team. He started his career as a Unix sys-admin at Binghamton University. When not chasing electrons he prefers to be 20-30 meters under the sea.
