Jerod Brennen

Identity Strategy and Solutions Advisor

By day, Jerod Brennen (@slandail) is a storyteller, teacher, speaker, advisor, and security architect. He works as an Identity Strategy and Solutions Advisor for SailPoint.

By night, he’s a husband, father, writer, filmmaker, martial artist, musician, and gamer. It’s fair to say that he’s earned every gray hair in his beard, having spent his career fulfilling infosec roles in consulting, higher education, retail, and public utilities.

Jerod loves to share what he’s learned over the years every chance he gets: at local and regional professional meetings, at larger conferences, and online via blogs and podcasts. He has published multiple online information security courses with Pluralsight and LinkedIn Learning, and he also teaches courses in person, both domestically and internationally.

At the end of the day, Jerod just wants to help folks get one step closer to doing what they want to do securely. You can connect with Jerod on LinkedIn at
