by Ryan Ozawa
We are pleased to announce that Kurt Hagerman will be a keynote speaker at our upcoming virtual conference, Paubox SECURE @ Home, taking place on October 21-22.
Hailing from Texas, Kurt Hagerman‘s first jobs were in the real estate and oil and gas industries. But nearly 30 years ago, his technical talents quickly set him on a path to where he stands today, a recognized expert in business governance, risk management, and compliance.
Who is Kurt Hagerman?
Since 2013, Hagerman has served as the chief information security officer at Armor Defense, Inc. (formerly FireHost, Inc.), which provides over 1,000 customers across 42 countries 24/7 threat detection and response, including secure hosting and log and data management.
He created the company’s first comprehensive, strategic cybersecurity programs from scratch, including securing multiple industry-standard security and compliance certifications. Hagerman also formed an information security steering committee, established an enterprise risk management program, and developed a wide range of information security policies.
Where have I seen him before?
In addition to his work at Armor, Haberman has also spoken and presented at security industry events and trade shows, both in the U.S. and internationally. He has been featured at RSA, HITRUST, HIMSS, and at a number of privacy and security conferences in London. And he’s represented Armor at events like Black Hat and VMWorld.
Among his more recent presentations was one titled “Healthcare’s Losing Battle Against the Hyper-Connected Machines.”
Hagerman also writes about security for publications like IT News, Ecommerce Times, SC Magazine, Technology Banker, The Green Sheet and Healthcare IT News.
What are his specialties?
Hagerman has significant experience leading information security teams and serving as a lead risk officer, running governance, risk, and compliance programs for both corporate and customer-facing facets of an enterprise. He is particularly familiar with compliance standards like HIPAA, PCI, and ISO 27001, and has conducted hundreds of security audits across several industries, including healthcare, higher education, and financial services.
In addition, he has background in cybersecurity and IT security, systems engineering and network engineering. Hagerman also focuses on corporate leadership, policy and planning, change management and project management.
He will bring all of these talents and experiences to share with attendees at Paubox SECURE @ Home, where he will give a presentation titled “Shiny Object Syndrome: Ensuring Your Security Puzzle is Complete.”
