Meditology, a professional services company specializing in privacy and security for healthcare organizations, has appointed a new IT risk management director.
Nadia Fahim-Koster was formerly chief information security officer (CISO) for Piedmont Healthcare and is a recognized industry thought leader in information security, privacy and regulatory compliance. This announcement follows the recent appointment of Brian Selfridge, another former healthcare CISO, to managing director.
“The healthcare industry looks very different today. The security, privacy and legal requirements are converging, and information security professionals are constantly scrambling to keep up. CISOs require a combination of IT skills coupled with business analysis skills, regulatory knowledge and the ability to communicate across various clinical departments,” said Fahim-Koster.
“I am excited to move into a role where I can have an impact at a national level. Meditology is a visionary company with top-notch talent, knowledge and clients and is well positioned to help healthcare organizations with their most complex compliance challenges.”
Fahim-Koster brings 16 years of healthcare experience to Meditology. In her role as executive director of information security and regulatory compliance for Piedmont Healthcare, she was responsible for the information privacy and security programs throughout the Piedmont System where she led the remediation of the first OIG HIPAA Security Audit findings. Fahim-Koster also served as the information privacy and security director for Gwinnett Medical Center.
“Nadia represents the kind of professionalism and experience that Meditology brings to our healthcare clients. Her expertise and knowledge will help continue the momentum for Meditology as the premier privacy and security firm in the healthcare industry,” said Brian Selfridge, practice leader for Meditology.
