Ryan Fitzpatrick has been working in IT for 14 years. He spent the first four years bouncing between help desk, systems administration and network administration for small businesses where he played around with every piece of technology he could get his hands on before landing on supporting SIEM. He was intrigued by data analytics and the automation potential SIEM brought to organizations.

Armed with natural curiosity, a wide scope of technological understanding and a childhood full of scripting, he found himself in a rewarding career where he could continue to learn, develop and automate. So far he’s helped ingest and analyze data from over 500,000 endpoints worldwide and trained two teams of analysts and engineers to perform security operations.

In his free time, Ryan enjoys video games, practicing jiu-jitsu and teaching himself new skills in IT. His latest interest has been in developing automation servers with Django, and he is successfully managing the health and status of a 60-node SIEM cluster designed to handle data from 60,000 data sources.
