Like the brakes on a car, the Security team’s mission is to enable Chainalysis to accelerate with confidence. Our Vision is to build an environment where Information Security risks are identified, understood, and managed to an acceptable level across Chainalysis. We have the tools, resources, and expertise to make optimal decisions for business success.

Curiosity and an instinct to search for ways to reduce the likelihood and impact of a breach of confidentiality, integrity or availability are key.  We measure their success by the ability to detect, investigate, respond and recover from threats and positive impact on our security posture and culture.
