Brian Concannon
Co-Founder

Brian’s passions center around enabling people to do their best work, and he has successfully applied this philosophy to his various experiences in cyber security, software development, and law enforcement.

Brian spent the first six years of his career designing and developing complex, low level, embedded software systems, designed to provide secure and reliable satellite communications for the U.S. military.

In 2005, Brian joined the FBI as a Special Agent. During his eight-year tenure as an agent, Brian ran investigations focusing on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence and Cyber threats from around the world. He was selected to be a member of the FBI’s elite Cyber Action Team (CAT), charged with responding to the nation’s most complex and pressing cyber threats.

Following his time in the FBI, Brian joined CrowdStrike in its early stages, and helped form what has now become an elite Cyber Security Operations Center, called Falcon Overwatch. Brian formed and managed the enablement team for Overwatch. His team designed, built and maintained a cutting edge behavioral detection system and a big data analytics platform that processed hundreds of thousands of raw events per second, generating high fidelity leads for senior intrusion analysts. His team also built an orchestration and automation system that provided a mechanism for analysts to triage and respond to hunting alerts generated by the detection system.

Brian holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University.
