Jeremiah Talamantes

CISO, Speaker, Author & Consultant-for-Hire

Intro

A little background

I have been in Information Security since 1997 and have had the pleasure provided consulting services for Facebook, Kohler, UnitedHealth Group, Wells Fargo, Best Buy, Pershing Square, and many others. I started and built RedTeam Security, a cybersecurity consulting firm, from its foundation to a million-dollar firm. RedTeam is a global provider of red teaming services and eventually became the subject of a viral mini-documentary, Hacking the Grid, based on my physical red team expertise.

Along my 22-year career, I authored two security books, The Social Engineer's Playbook and Physical Red Team Operations. I have been fortunate to have started and sold two other companies, served as CISO for a Healthcare firm and authored two patents. I have been interviewed by Adam Housley on FOX News, Yahoo! Finance, CNN, CIO Magazine, PenTest Magazine, and many others.
