Carder will set the vision for and direct the company’s global information security program, LogRhythm said. As VP of LogRhythm Labs, he will lead the mission to advance its vision for providing unrivaled machine data intelligence, pre-packaged solutions for holistic threat analytics and compliance automation, and delivery of incident response automation and services, the company said.

Carder joins the company with more than 17 years of experience in corporate security and consulting for Fortune 500 and government entities, managing large teams and customer relationships and building service lines.

“James brings to LogRhythm extensive experience and understanding of the financial services and health care verticals – two industries being heavily targeted by today’s threat actors,” said Chris Petersen, LogRhythm’s co-founder and CTO.

“He has a deep and proven track record in proactive security, threat intelligence, computer forensics and incident detection-and-response in some of the most complex enterprises in the world.”

Prior to joining LogRhythm, Carder was director of security informatics at the Mayo Clinic. He also ran Mandiant’s northeast field office and New York City office.

“With targeted advanced attacks and the complexity of networks increasing, LogRhythm continues to help customers protect information systems and data integral to business operations,” Carder said.

“I look forward to building upon the success of LogRhythm’s unique security intelligence framework to ensure customers are continuously staying ahead of threats and reducing their risk of cyber-based attacks.”
