Former CHX CISO Chris Brown Joins WEBIT Team


WEBIT Services Inc. Announces the Hiring of Chris Brown

A leader in the Chicago-area Managed IT Services industry, WEBIT Services Inc. strengthens its offerings by agreeing to terms with the former CHX IT and Cyber-security professional.

Naperville, IL. September 20, 2019Handling IT and cyber-security for a major Stock Exchange is definitely challenging work. After all, a breach can not only affect the related infrastructure, but can also affect financial markets worldwide. And it’s this type of experience that Chris Brown brings to WEBIT Services Inc., who announced his hiring on Monday, September 16th as a vCISO (Virtual Chief Information Security Officer).

Mr. Brown comes to WEBIT after 30+ years with the Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX), including stints as Vice President of Information Technology, Senior Vice President of Information Technology, and Chief Information Security Officer, where he was responsible for the entirety of CHX’s cyber-security efforts.

WEBIT feels their new hire will be an excellent addition to their professional staff, enhancing the company’s level of service to its Chicago-area clients.

“Bringing in a professional with Chris’ background was very attractive. When you think about how much attention a stock exchange must get from cyber-criminals across the globe, you realize the level of expertise that’s involved. Chris will help guide our strategic conversations with clients, helping them stay ahead of an ever-changing IT security landscape. He’ll also be lending his vast experience to our security team, enhancing our company promise of Secure, Reliable, and Efficient technology.” said Eric Rieger, President of WEBIT.

Mr. Brown is equally as happy to be joining the WEBIT Team. “I was attracted to WEBIT’s client and employee-centered approach to business. While a stock exchange may seem big and impersonal, it was the people involved that always made the job engaging, so I’m happy to expand on that aspect with WEBIT, and am looking forward to serving their clients with both the expertise and the personal touch they expect.” commented Brown.
