Critical Insight, which defends critical systems for essential organizations and midmarket companies by using Critical Insight Managed Detection and Response (MDR), today announced the appointment of John Delano as Critical Insight Healthcare Security Strategist.
John Delano currently serves as a member on the Healthcare Board of Advisors at Critical Insight, which he joined in April 2019. As AdventHealth Regional CIO and member of the AIT Senior Leadership team, John is the regional executive accountable for all IT-related clinical and technology activities in the Southwest Region and has responsibility to provide adequate resources to ensure on-time and on-budget IT Service Delivery.
“John brings a wealth of experience in leadership, healthcare information technology, and health information exchange with decades of industry knowledge and CIO/CISO expertise and insights,” said Garrett Silver, CEO of Critical Insight. “He’s uniquely qualified to help Critical Insight scale and evolve its healthcare program growth strategy. I’m excited to welcome John to the team and look forward to working with him as we continue our mission of protecting healthcare organizations.”
Healthcare organizations are increasingly facing cybersecurity challenges that can too easily disrupt an organization's mission of delivering patient care. The work of managing and securing mission-critical systems requires a continuous journey to mature systems, policies, and practices against ever increasing cybersecurity threats. Critical Insight Security was founded with a vision of protecting and defending life safety and life-sustaining networks. Critical Insight specializes in helping healthcare organizations and critical infrastructure to become more resilient so they can ensure uninterrupted patient care.
“I’m honored to be joining the Critical Insight Security team at such an important time for healthcare cybersecurity,” said John Delano. “Cyberattacks create a huge distraction, while threat actors are getting more sophisticated with Nation-States focused on breaching healthcare entities. The threat forces organizations to better understand their vulnerabilities and get better insight into their overall security posture. Combined with its complete suite of cybersecurity services, Critical Insight’s MDR platform is a driving force for reducing cybercriminals who are trying to do harm, while in many cases, patients are experiencing the most vulnerable times in their lives.”
Prior to his current role, John was Senior Healthcare Strategist for VMware, where he utilized his industry knowledge and experience to work with customers' executive teams, internal product management, and partner organizations to ensure solutions addressed industry problems alongside improving healthcare outcomes to enable customers to focus on their mission of providing care to patients.
In addition, John held the role of CISO at Cook Children's Health Care System, where he was responsible for establishing the enterprise Information Security strategy and program to ensure the healthcare system's critical information resources are protected. Before joining VMware, he was the Vice President and CIO at INTEGRIS Health, where he was responsible for the IT strategy and operations of a $1.8B healthcare integrated delivery network with hospitals, hundreds of physician clinics, and tens of thousands employees statewide.
