Jeremy Batterman

Senior Principal Cybersecurity Chicago

Created with Lunacy

Cybersecurity attacks can cost companies in many ways – from the lost revenue of crippled operations to reputational damage. Jeremy helps clients preserve value by recovering quickly from or – better yet – withstanding costly attacks.  

He understands how to manage complex cybersecurity issues, persistent threats, and incident response for critical information systems--because he’s done that, time and time again. He has spent half of his career conducting incident response internally for Fortune 100 defense and telecommunications companies, but he also enjoys helping mid-sized and smaller companies realize a direct impact by maintaining operations while under attack. His experience has instilled unique perspectives for dealing with cyber attacks and advanced threats, and equipped him to guide clients with practical approaches for fixing and preventing future attacks.  

He has a deep passion for his industry and career. In addition to consulting, he has built successful threat hunting and intelligence offerings, and founded a security company.  

Prior to joining West Monroe, he was global director of threat intelligence fusion and hunting for Trustwave and an assistant director of incident response with Navigant. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Metropolitan State University of Denver and an MBA from the University of Maryland. He holds multiple cybersecurity-related certifications.  

What makes Jeremy different

Jeremy grew up in the Mountain West and has skied since he was four years old. Although he now lives in Chicago, he relishes any opportunity to get back to the slopes. He was also a sponsored freestyle/BMX trick bike rider as a teen.

Where Jeremy makes an impact

He particularly enjoys sharing his knowledge and has taught his trade all over the world. He co-developed several week-long courses on intelligence-driven response that prepare analysts and security professionals to deal with advanced targeted threats.  

He also started a non-profit that delivered breakfast burritos and peanut butter sandwiches by little red wagon to the homeless in Denver. His wife was the executive chef, he was the chief wagon puller, and his three children handed out food.
