Brian Ireland joined Black Hills Information Security (BHIS) in July 2022 as an Elastic Engineer. He is responsible for supporting the SOC around the SIEM operations. Brian previously spent 12 yrs as a security analyst in the regulated and non-regulated utility space. He chose BHIS because of the opportunity to explore new technology and work with a motivated team. He says the best part is the freedom to challenge himself to come up with creative and effective security measures. When he’s not working, Brian enjoys camping and hitting the trails in the Black Hills, and working on personal projects.
