This month, we will hear from Ian Atchison, one of our members. Ian earned his CISSP in 2014. Ian is the Information Security Officer for Cornerstone Health Care, a network of physicians headquartered in High Point, NC. Ian has held this position for the past 18 months. Prior to that he worked as a senior information security analyst, also at Cornerstone. He has served in other capacities around the Triad including as a system administrator at Inmar in Winston-Salem.


Ian will focus his talk on HIPAA challenges for the medical offices that serve patients on a daily basis. These offices have been financially incented by the federal government to automate their records and client care systems. As most of us have read though, these newly automated systems have become a favorite target of hackers in search of PII that can be sold or used in identity theft activities.


Please join the Triad Chapter at their March meeting as we hear Ian talk of some of the challenges and opportunities he has had in developing controls to protect customer data for the patients and staff of the Cornerstone network.



I’m sure you’ll find what Ian has to say both educational and entertaining.


This is a great opportunity for our members to meet, network, and learn from other members and professionals in the community.  Please be sure to register by clicking on the link below:
