Jacob West

Chief Architect, Security Products
San Mateo, CA
Jacob West is Chief Architect for Security Products at NetSuite. In his role, West leads research and development for technology to identify and mitigate security threats, particularly in cloud deployments and at the software layer. West has over a decade of experience developing, delivering, and monetizing innovative security solutions beginning with static analysis research at the University of California, Berkeley and as an early researcher at Fortify Software.

Prior to this role, West served as chief technology officer for Enterprise Security Products (ESP) at HP where he founded and led HP Security Research, which drives innovation through research publications, threat briefings, and actionable security intelligence. Earlier at HP, West served as chief technology officer for Fortify products and leader of Fortify Software Security Research.

A world-recognized expert on software security, West co-authored the book, “Secure Programming with Static Analysis” with colleague and Fortify founder, Brian Chess, in 2007. Today, the book remains the only comprehensive guide to how developers can use static analysis to avoid the most prevalent and dangerous vulnerabilities in code.

West is a member of the California Cybersecurity Task Force, co-authors the Building Security in Maturity Model (BSIMM), serves as a founding member of both the IEEE Center for Secure Design (CSD) and the (ISC)2 Application Security Advisory Council (ASAC), and is a frequent keynote speaker.
