Director, Business Information Security Office
In his current role, John leverages the Cyber Risk Insights (CRI) methodology to help businesses identify information assets that are critical to their value chain. Once assets are identified, they are mapped to the systems where they are stored. He then works with the business to address any gaps that exist between the criticality of the data and the security where the data is stored.
John joined VUMC in 2006 providing technical support to the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Health Affairs (currently the Office of the CEO). Additionally, he has worked in central information technology as a Service Delivery Manager, Project Manager, Business Application Specialist and Associate Director of the Customer Relationship group. Prior to joining VUMC he worked in private healthcare, banking, and higher education.
John is a former member of the U.S. Army where he earned money to become the first in his family to attend college. He holds a master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Arizona Global Campus and holds multiple certifications including CISSP, CRISC, PMP, and Factor Analysis in Information Risk (FAIR).
