Brian Coulson

Principal Threat Research Engineer

My Role

As Principal Threat Research Engineer in LogRhythm Labs, I work to keep abreast of current cyberthreats and news, develop threat detection and response content, and demonstrate how we detect and respond to threats. In this role, I regularly engage with the LogRhythm Community and offer advice and solutions to remediate common security-related issues. I am also responsible for creating new content in the form of AI Engine rules, WebUI dashboards, and Kibana.

My Story

Prior to starting at LogRhythm, I worked as lead information security engineer for a LogRhythm customer. I also used a number of other SIEMS and logging solutions throughout my time at the company. In this position, my day-to-day responsibilities included incident response, forensics, compliance, policy authoring, internal training, security architecture, and more.

In December of 2016, I wanted to pursue an opportunity in which I could take all of my knowledge and experience, and share it with others. It was then that I joined LogRhythm.

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family, playing games, spending time outdoors, cooking, photography, and of course hacking (ethically).
