Experience... is Experience

Throughout my career spanning over 24 years in Cybersecurity and Threat Intelligence, I have had the privilege of collaborating and learning from a plethora of talented individuals. This has resulted in an extensive industry experience, covering a wide range of roles such as building solid foundations, building revenue and sales teams, providing security consulting, managing projects, and leading teams. I have also played a crucial role in securing funding and being apart of several successful acquisitions.

Moreover, I have contributed to the professional growth of various individuals by delivering comprehensive security training across organizations, fostering a strong organizational culture.

Demonstrating my unwavering commitment to staying current with the latest trends and technologies, I consistently keep myself updated on the ever-evolving threat landscape. By constantly monitoring attacker tactics, techniques, and procedures, I am able to effectively and proactively enable my contacts to manage & mitigate their risks.

About Joel

Congratulations on making it this far, and thank you for your interest in getting to know me!
 
My name is Joel Chiprut, but many people know me as Chips. I was born and raised on Mercer Island, a small island nestled between Seattle and Bellevue, making me a native of the Pacific Northwest and the Seattle area. Both of my parents are Jewish, with my father hailing from Seattle's famous Mount Baker neighborhood and my mother from Vancouver, B.C. On my mother's side, my grandparents were Holocaust survivors, and my grandfather led the underground and helped my Safta escape from the camps. After being denied entry into the U.S. due to an embargo, they ended up in Vancouver.
 
In 1999, I moved to New York City to be with my soon-to-be wife, Rachel, and spent 3.5 years working in the city and living through the tragic events of 9/11. Eventually, I persuaded Rachel to move with me to Seattle, and we've been here for over 20 years now.

During my time in New York City, I worked with various recruiting and ad-tech companies. In 2004, I went to an interview in Tacoma, WA where I met two co-founders of a small, lesser-known company. They wanted me to help boost their client base, and although I didn't fully understand what they were doing, their talk of "anti-phishing" and "takedowns" sounded intriguing. Despite initial difficulties selling the data, we were able to focus on takedowns and achieve significant success. This was my introduction to cybersecurity, and I couldn't have asked for a better start by joining Internet Identity (now known as IID-nka Infoblox).

My time at IID/Infoblox was an incredible journey, with huge commercial and federal wins, funding success, and an acquisition by Infoblox in 2013. I spent a total of 13 years there, and I loved every minute of it. Through my experiences, I have become a true veteran of the cybersecurity and threat intelligence community.

People often ask me what motivates me to stay in this industry, and my answer is always the same. I cannot think of any other career option where every day feels fresh and unique, and it not even close!
