Chris Hallenbeck is Tanium’s Chief Information Security Officer. Chris provides security leadership and operational insight gained from over 25 years in both the public and private sector. Chris came to Tanium after 7 years of government service at the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). The majority of his career has strongly touched upon incident response which is why Chris believes that breaking the incident response “Groundhog Day” cycle requires an emphasis on IT hygiene. Prior to joining US-CERT, Chris worked for RSA Security 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.
