As a Principal Security Service Engineering Manager with Microsoft, Rashaan Green is not your typical Cyber Security professional. Rashaan is a ninth-grade high school dropout turned two-time college graduate.

His nine-year career expands across IT and Cyber Security, from starting as a Help Desk Tech to Information Systems Security Officer, Information Systems Security Manager, and now to his current role.

Rashaan is responsible for leading an exclusive team of professionals who defend Microsoft products against some of the world’s most challenging cybersecurity threats. The team consists of cyber security incident responders, investigators, and researchers who work within Microsoft’s Security Operations Center (SOC). They protect some of Microsoft’s largest and most critical product lines, including Azure, Microsoft O365, Exchange, Windows, Teams, Sharepoint, and GovCloud.

Rashaan’s passions are building and leading teams, developing talent, improving our nation’s cybersecurity defenses, helping at-risk youth and non-traditional students seek higher education, and helping guide them toward the fantastic career opportunities available in cybersecurity.
