Clearwater Compliance, an OHA PPN company, announces new risk and security officers

Posted on: 5/9/18


Clearwater Compliance has named two veteran strategists, Jon Moore and Richard Staynings, to address and prioritize urgency around hospitals’ cybersecurity management. They bring decades of experience to enhance Clearwater’s best capabilities for hospital leaders.

Clearwater is a top-ranked, award-winning health care cyber risk management and regulatory compliance company. As the leading strategic partner to hospitals and health systems, its mission is to assist in successfully managing health care’s evolving cybersecurity risks, compliance requirements and, ultimately, to ensure patient safety.

“Heightened awareness around cybersecurity does not always translate into effective action, and hospital leaders need to approach today’s challenge with strategic urgency,” said Bob Chaput, CEO of Clearwater. “The industry’s approach to managing cyber risk continues to be reactive, tactical and siloed. We are very pleased to welcome Jon and Richard as new officers to assist in addressing this industry need for a more strategic, business-oriented and architectural approach. With their deep leadership experience assisting health system and hospital leaders improve their security posture and strategic approach, both Jon and Richard bring highly relevant skills and qualifications to create strategic focus around cybersecurity and risk management. We look forward to their contributions to our fast-growing company.”

Moore is an experienced professional with a background in privacy and security law, technology and health care. He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Haverford College, a law degree from Penn State University’s Dickinson Law, and a master’s in electronic commerce from Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science and Tepper School of Business. In his new position, Moore will serve and assist health care CEO and CIO clients on strategic matters related to understanding, identifying and proactively managing cyber risk.

Staynings is an accomplished business leader who has worked with many of the world’s most successful companies. With more than 25 years of experience in cybersecurity leadership, he has advised or assisted health care clients across the world. Staynings is a graduate from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. In his position, Staynings will help clients build a strategic vision toward improved security and provide input and advice in regard to major cyber challenges that CEOs and CIOs face in the health care environment.
