Jason Brown's passion is security and education. For the past eight years he has been working his way up in the industry, starting as a network technician at Ferris State University to eventually being named as one of only two enterprise security architects for the state of Michigan. Jason earned his bachelor's degree in information technology from Central Michigan University in 2007, and his master's in management information systems from Ferris State University in 2009.
Jason's goals have always aimed at becoming a leader in information security, and was thrilled to start his next chapter in October 2015 as Merit Network's Chief Information Security Officer. Jason has been married to his wife, Stacey, for eight years. They enjoy their downtime with their three dogs, and love to travel the world together.
