Jared is president of DLP Experts, a value-added reseller dedicated exclusively to data loss prevention (DLP) and other data protection technologies and services. For over twenty years Jared has held executive level positions with technology firms, with the last six years focused in the area of DLP and data protection.

His longtime vendor-agnostic approach to DLP technologies has netted him extensive tribal knowledge in the form of features and capabilities across many leading DLP vendors. He leverages this insider information for the benefit of his customers as they consider the best technologies to meet specific technical and budgetary requirements. Jared has long promoted the idea that DLP is not a product, but a process, with enforcement technologies being just one step of many. His company's unique approach, referred to as DLP.IQ, supports this step-by-step process from start to finish.

Jared is a recognized writer and speaker on the subject of network security and has participated in many industry events throughout the US, Latin America and Europe, including (ISC)2, BrightTALK, BankInfoSecurity.com, Infosecurity Europe, ISPCON, and Internet Business.

Jared earned a degree in English from BYU, which he now uses to write a blog.
