Chase Jones

Cybersecurity Architect

With 11 years of experience in information technology, Chase is passionate about understanding how hackers operate and how to defend against them. Chase focuses on providing systems and network administration services for his clients and employers by applying a balance of security and business optimization in a cost-effective way. Coming from a strong background in system and network administration, he has a unique perspective on integrating security into a company at all levels while understating the needs of end users, senior management, IT operations and infrastructure. Chase has been effective in providing insight and delivering business continuity, disaster recovery, user security training, policies and procedures, security assessments, and following industry standards and best practices for security.

Chase started his career as a Support Engineer for Novell’s Zenworks, a cross platform endpoint management software that provides business services such as asset management, compliance, patch management, and managed device security. He was responsible for troubleshooting issues and consulting with clients to configure the toolset to ensure both best practices, compliance and a return on investment. Later working in the Managed Service Provider space, Chase assisted clients in outsourcing their information systems, developing customized solutions for every infrastructure, business model, industry standard, and budget, and ultimately delivering a valuable solution that was both enabling and cost effective. For the past four years, Chase has been instrumental in continuously evaluating and assessing emerging risks and threats to improve security for Richey May and their clients.

Chase is a Colorado native, and while he has spent a few years living outside of the state, he couldn’t stay away for long. He loves anything that can be done in the mountains and outdoors, such as snowboarding, mountain biking, fishing, backpacking, and hunting. However, no outdoor activity compares to spending time with his wife and three kids.
