For today’s OpenSec 2017 preview, we heard from Jen Andre, founder and CEO of Komand.


At Komand, Jen empowers security teams to focus on efficient incident response and decision making by offering the automation of manual tasks, and a space to share this automation and knowhow with the wider security community. Prior to founding Komand, Jen co-founded Threat Stack, and worked at Mandiant and Symantec. She is very involved in the cybersecurity space, authoring multiple articles and speaking at conferences around the country.

To hear more about the current state of open source cyber security from Jen and other leaders in the open source community, sign up for OpenSec 2017 on May 15th.
