In his most recent role at Penn Medicine, Dan led the IT Infrastructure and Information Security departments, managing a $60 million budget, while protecting and enabling one of the United States’ leading schools of medicine, six hospitals, over 40,000 employees, and millions of patient records. He implemented comprehensive security programs and technologies, including vulnerability management for over 150,000 devices, identity protection, application and data protection safeguards, incident response, cloud computing infrastructure design, EMR security, and security operations. Further, Dan completed development and staffing of a 24/7 security operations center (SOC) for Penn Medicine, including active security monitoring, forensic analysis, threat intelligence, and technical orchestration of day-to-day security operations. Dan holds the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), and Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) designations.
