Bob Swanson

Compliance Engineer, Team Lead


My Role

I serve as the Compliance Engineer for the LogRhythm Labs team. In this role, I spend my time researching various compliance mandates and consulting with the product team to build out easy-to-use compliance packages for LogRhythm customers. I also work closely with customers and sales engineers to architect solutions within LogRhythm to meet compliance obligations in the customer’s environment.

My Story

My career began as an Advisory and Risk Service Consultant with Deloitte and Touche, LLP, in which I conducted both internal and external IT audits.

From there, I transitioned from an IT Risk and Compliance Analyst to an IT Compliance Manager role for Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc. During this time, I had the opportunity to build an IT Compliance program around SOX, HIPPA and PCI.

After the company went public in July 2014, the mountains started calling me. As the IT Compliance Manager at ADS, I was an end-user of the LogRhythm platform, which made for an easy transition.

In May 2015, I served as the Keynote Speaker at the 2015 IIA Conference for the Institute of Internal Auditors in Salt Lake City.

Outside of the office, I enjoy all things outdoors all year long.

My Philosophy

“The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” John Muir

As a professional in the compliance industry, it’s important to be able to take a look at the big picture and the fine details in the control objectives to bring it all together to demonstrate understanding of the compliance requirements.
