CSA-CO Sept 2019 Meeting

Speaker: Jeremy Rose Principal Security Analyst – Elastic

Topic: Information security, remote work, and the cloud – how the landscape is shifting and what we can do about it.

Jeremy works at the intersection of security, privacy, and the law. He is presently a principal security analyst at Elastic, where his main areas of focus are liaising between the legal and security teams and helping bring order to the chaos that is managing a data inventory for a distributed, cloud-based organization. Jeremy also drafted and implemented Elastic’s privacy program, taking it from an ad-hoc collection of processes and documents to a defined program. Prior to Elastic, Jeremy worked as a technology and data privacy attorney for a firm in Denver, helping clients draft numerous boring legal documents and providing guidance on compliance with privacy and information security standards and best practices. Before joining the law firm, Jeremy spent many months in a sandy locale courtesy of the United States Army where he served as the sole judge advocate and ethics officer to a joint special operations task force. It was here that he discovered that performing risk assessments in 130-degree heat is definitely worse than performing them in 90-degree heat. Prior to this, Jeremy spent six years running a legal consulting practice focused on governance, risk, and compliance advising.

Jeremy received his Bachelor of Science degree from Doane University and his Juris Doctorate degree from Creighton University School of Law. He has been married for 15 years and has two children and one very large dog. In his free time, Jeremy enjoys reading, playing piano, exercising, and writing mediocre bios.
