Brian Fritton has built products and led engineering, design, and IT teams at companies with credentials such as Fortune’s 500 Fastest Growing Companies, the Inc. 5000 List, and Entrepreneur’s 100 Most Brilliant Companies.

He’s been the “guy in the hot seat” — responsible for defending a small business from cyberattacks — as a FinTech CTO at Patch of Land and the VP of Engineering for a critical political campaign and enterprise data science software maker. Brian brings the founder’s perspective to cybersecurity in an increasingly complicated and risk-filled environment.

Brian is originally from the woods of northwest Michigan and got his bachelor’s degree in e-business from DePaul University, where he spent more time experimenting with different businesses than going to class. He moved back to Chicago to start Havoc Shield after building his previous LA-based startup into a crowdfunding machine, having originated over a billion dollars in real estate loans and a successful exit. He’s married, has too many pets, and lives in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago.
