Janet has literally grown up with the field of cybersecurity over the past four decades. After starting her career as a middle school math teacher, she pivoted and went back to school for computer science. This move launched her career in cybersecurity and led her to the National Security Agency. In her more than 30 years with the agency, Janet progressed from an intern to a senior executive in the technical field of cybersecurity, overseeing many projects to protect private government information. She brings to Hartman vast experience in systems security engineering, security design and architecture, system development lifecycle, incident response and remediation, policy and governance, and risk assessment.
“Effective use of technology is absolutely essential in today’s economy and incorporating security controls can be a true business enabler.” — Janet Oren
At Hartman, Janet helps organizations protect their data in a way that makes sense for their business. She dedicates herself to each client she serves, and takes them on an organized and thorough journey to becoming cyber secure and industry compliant. Janet draws on her experience with the federal government and with Legg Mason, where she served as Chief Information Security Officer. In her role, she developed and implemented a security program and architecture for the global firm of 1,500 employees and 1,000 contractors. She also led 24/7 monitoring, incident response and investigation capabilities, and was responsible for security awareness campaigns and continual education of the workforce.
Outside of work, Janet enjoys spending time with her three grandchildren and taking on home renovation projects. She is also involved in the CISO Executive Roundtable and serves on the board of trustees at her church. When her schedule permits, she is an adjunct professor of information security at Towson University and Anne Arundel Community College.
