Jeremy Grant

Jeremy Grant is Venable’s Managing Director of Technology Business Strategy and a member of the firm’s cybersecurity consulting practice. Combining federal government and private sector experience, he works with clients to develop growth strategies, identify and exploit market trends, and advise on policy impacts across the IT, cybersecurity, identity, and payments sectors.

In this role, Mr. Grant utilizes his diverse background and deep understanding of business, technical, policy, and finance issues around identity, privacy, and cybersecurity, having served in a range of leadership positions spanning government and industry. Most recently, Mr. Grant worked as a Managing Director at The Chertoff Group. Before that, he established and led the National Program Office for the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace (NSTIC), housed in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST); NSTIC was the first new cybersecurity program launched by the Obama administration. There he led the administration’s activities across private and public sectors to drive a marketplace of more secure, privacy-enhancing identity solutions for online services. He coordinated development of a common shared identity service for citizen-facing government digital applications and helped establish the private sector–led Identity Ecosystem Steering Group, which has crafted a framework of standards and rules to enable a trusted online environment that can validate the identities of individuals securely with minimal disclosure of personal information. He also led efforts to improve identity and authentication for individuals and devices in the NIST Roadmap for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity.

Before leading NSTIC, Mr. Grant was the Chief Development Officer for government services consulting firm ASI Government. He spent three years with Washington Research Group as a market analyst focused on identity, cybersecurity, and government technology. Earlier in his career, he served as Vice President for Enterprise Solutions at MAXIMUS, where he led the division’s Security and Identity Management practice, playing a major role in a number of major federal identity and security programs. Mr. Grant began his career as a legislative aide in the U.S. Senate, drafting legislation laying the groundwork for the Department of Defense and civilian agency smart card and PKI efforts.
