Jason Blanchard has been happily adopted into the hacker community even though he, “works in marketing.” He’s had every dream job imaginable: teaching filmmaking, owning the world’s most famous comic book store, and fostering the infosec community efforts for SANS. Jason humbly brought his particular set of skills to Black Hills Information Security in 2019. While some call him the “Director of Excitement” here at BHIS, he is formally known as the Content and Community Director. The Content and Community Team is constantly creating content to build and foster the BHIS community. Jason loves that he gets to share as much of his knowledge as possible and gets to give lots of stuff away. In his day-to-day work of “sucking at capitalism,” Jason enjoys helping others and loves the people who do it alongside him. In his free time, Jason enjoys hosting a job-hunting live stream twice a week on Twitch, spending time with his wife and daughter, writing short stories, and doing stand-up comedy.
