    Chris LaFleur
    Manager-Threat IR & Forensic, Trend Micro

    Chris LaFleur has spent the last three years working to prevent and eradicate threat actors such as Ryuk, Conti, and Lockbit. Chris began his career at Trend Micro in Threat Support, and is now running the Incident Response team. He was a key part of the making a method on how to predict customer attacks with the Smart Protection Early warning Service from Trend Micro. Chris has built a team of dedicated personal that can go into any environment and hunt out threats without needing to rely on just vendor only EDR/XDR tooling to kill the threat actors ability to cause damage.

    Chris has an AS degree in IT solutions from Keiser University, along with AWS and VMWare certifications, coupled with his hands-on experience over the last decade. Chris has always led with the belief that the customer comes first no matter who or what may have caused it. Keeping an attitude that IR work is much like working in a trauma center as a doctor. We don't get to choose what comes next or how long it will take, but we do not stop until the job is complete.
