my background

Jesus "Laz" Montano


As a senior Information Security Leader at more than five FORTUNE® 500 firms and  CISO at three of them, I have accumulated invaluable experience in the areas of Information Security & Risk Management.

This international experience, especially with Fortune 100 Financial Services organizations,  uniquely positions me to lead, transform and oversee, global information security organizations.

My Approach...


I am passionate, pragmatic and direct.

This allows me to focus and understand your business issues and identify where there may be existing gaps or opportunities and propose a tailored solution that focuses on how to best address your business risks.

The Difference...


My experience has taught me that the best solutions are forged and built on the strength of many rather than the knowledge or expertise of any one individual.

The difference I bring to addressing your information security needs is my unique blend of experience, my pragmatic approach to solving problems and the extensive relationships I have with many industry experts, colleagues and peers.
