SEATTLE, June 19, 2018 – Critical Insight announced today the creation of a healthcare board of advisors. The company is a leading provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) cybersecurity services for the healthcare industry.
The nine-member board is composed of current and former leaders of hospitals, clinics and insurers, as well as healthcare technology and healthcare investment firms. “The board members are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in a variety of healthcare sectors,” noted founder Michael Hamilton. “Their insights are incredibly valuable as we continue to improve our cybersecurity solutions to secure life-saving medical systems and protect patient data.”
“The company has a long history of providing cybersecurity services to the healthcare industry,” added Critical Insight CEO, Garrett Silver. “We offer a unique combination of people-powered by technology, and we seek to constantly improve. We sought industry advisors who represent both technical and business risk perspectives so that we get a detailed picture of their IT Security challenges and direct feedback on the services we offer.”
The board held its first meeting in mid-February and concluded its second in early June. Neil Kurtz, a serial healthcare entrepreneur and CEO of Golden Living, described the board as, “A tremendous opportunity for those of us in healthcare to participate in the development of healthcare-specific cybersecurity solutions.” Kurtz continued, “Our industry is full of both rich targets for cybercriminals and unique technological requirements. [Critical Insight’s] MDR is purpose-built for this environment and allows organizations to focus on patient care rather than identifying and responding to cyber threats.”
