Jim Simpson
CEO at Blumira

Jim Simpson, CEO of Blumira, strives to eliminate gatekeeping in the infosec industry, removing the barriers that prevent smaller teams from achieving successful security programs. Jim guides the company’s strategic product roadmap to deliver the fastest time to security, with a focus on easy-to-use detection and response technology. Under his leadership, Blumira released the industry’s only free, self-service cloud security information and event management (SIEM) delivering on the mission to make security accessible to organizations of all sizes.

Prior to Blumira, Simpson led product management at Duo Security, an access security provider that was acquired by Cisco in 2018 for $2.35 billion. He also led engineering and user experience teams through growth and acquisition at Arbor Networks, a network and management security provider, which was acquired by NETSCOUT in 2015.
