Jason Rader joined Insight’s Cloud + Data Center Transformation team (formerly Datalink) in 2015 as the National Practice Director of Security. He is charged with managing the security portfolio including strategic consulting offerings and technology focused solutions. Jason has over 20 years experience and has a deep understanding of the skills, tools, and methodologies required to deliver true solutions related to today’s security challenges. He likes to be known as a “business consultant who happens to be a security expert” and not the other way around. This approach has afforded him success because it requires vision beyond security projects and focuses on business outcomes. Jason is known for his expertise in operationalizing security and being a thought leader and sought after speaker in the threat intelligence and security operations spaces.
Prior to joining Insight CDCT, Rader was the Chief Security Strategist and Director of Cyber Threat Intelligence for EMC’s Security Division, RSA, where he was focused on developing enterprise security management strategies in the areas of health care, government, and the financial sector. He also led the RSA Research group in the collection and publication of cyber threat intelligence related to the latest cyber-attacks and advanced threat groups.
