MedSec Expands with Healthcare Technology Cyber Risk Management Team-01

MedSec, a leading provider of medical device security, today announced it is establishing a new Healthcare Technology Cyber Risk Management (HTCRM) team to expand its biomedical and clinical expertise with a roster of seasoned experts in the field. Phil Englert, who is currently MedSec’s Chief Product Officer and a HTCRM expert himself, will move to the role of Advisor to the new team.

“MedSec serves stakeholders of all kinds within the medical device eco-system. The establishment of this team allows us to better serve our hospital clients, who are tackling medical device security on a day-to-day basis,” stated Justine Bone, CEO at MedSec.

MedSec takes a technology first approach at helping clients understand and prioritize what matters most as threats to this critical infrastructure continue to increase.

“Biomedical and Clinical Engineering teams already have too many things on their plate – and they need leverage. Becoming an extension of their team, augmented by our technology capabilities, we’re able to help our customers do things that they would otherwise not be capable of doing with their existing staff,” added Andrew Donarumo, Chief Technology Officer at MedSec. “Our clients love the combination of being able to ‘speak tech’ but also ‘understand clinical’ to help them further achieve their goals.”
