Interview: Jen Ellis and Harley Geiger, Rapid7 - 6:00-7:00PM

  • Jen Ellis, VP Community & Public Affairs

Work with security researchers & policy makers to improve public safety. Our increasing connectivity & reliance on code increases the risk exposure for consumers & organizations. It’s critical we can explain this & help people protect themselves. I help researchers collaborate with legislators & industry leaders to reduce consumer & organizational risk. I also work to positively influence cybersecurity legislation. I also volunteer for I Am The Cavalry, a security research group focused on promoting cyber safety.

I translate the passion of technologists & entrepreneurs into something meaningful & tangible to others. Effective communication is key to collaboration & understanding; we need both if we’re going to change the world. I’m highly results-oriented and passionate about building meaningful customer & community partnerships. I develop communications strategies that build credibility as well as awareness. I have a proven track record of delivering real business benefits from media and analyst relations, social media and events involvement. I’m highly collaborative, with an emphasis on building strategic integration with marketing, products, sales, and business development to support the business’ overall goals.

  • Harley Geiger, Director of Public Policy

Attorney and public affairs professional with experience in non-profit, government, and corporate settings. Specialist in developing policy solutions, legal analysis, and strategic communications for technology issues such as cybersecurity, privacy, intellectual property, unmanned systems, and free expression.
