ATLANTA (September 19, 2018) – Brian Lozada, Chief Information Security Officer of Zocdoc, has been appointed to serve on the National Technology Security Coalition’s (NTSC) Board of Directors. Representing the healthcare and technology industries, Lozada will help influence the strategic direction of the NTSC and join CISOs who represent a broad cross-section of enterprise companies. These CISOs have a vested interest in protecting the security of their customers and employees through policies that improve national cybersecurity standards and awareness.
“Across my leadership roles in industries such as healthcare, financial services, technology, and media, I see how the tangled complexity of national cybersecurity laws and regulations often fall short of helping companies become more secure,” said Lozada. “More importantly, the way we create national cybersecurity policy affects how we protect critical infrastructure and share intelligence between the public and private sectors. An organization like the NTSC is uniquely positioned to articulate non-partisan policy positions that address these urgent problems. I am honored to join the NTSC Board of Directors with so many of my CISO peers.”
Lozada has more than 15 years of experience developing and maintaining information security programs for some of the world’s top brands. Before Zocdoc, Lozada was the Chief Information Security Officer for Abacus Group, the largest cloud provider within the financial services sector. Prior to joining Abacus, he was CISO at Condé Nast where he oversaw security and risk management for all digital and technology operations. He has also held several senior information security management positions at Sony Music Entertainment and Vonage.
“Through his published work, Brian has delved into many topics important to the NTSC such as national frameworks to improve the protection of critical infrastructure and exploring ways to facilitate cyber threat intelligence sharing between the DHS and private sector,” said Patrick Gaul, Executive Director of the NTSC. “His diverse industry experience also gives him unique insights as the NTSC looks at national cybersecurity policy and legislation from an industry-agnostic viewpoint. Brian is someone who can both take the 10,000-foot view and the ‘in the trenches’ view about cybersecurity policy, and we welcome this expertise to our growing board.”
The NTSC provides a platform for CISOs to advocate for beneficial legislative and regulatory policies. We encourage dialogue about cybersecurity issues, laws, and regulations through advocacy engagement with congressional members, regional CISO policy roundtables, and our National CISO Policy Conference.
Lozada joins a prestigious board of CISOs from leading companies including Aaron’s, Aflac, AIG, Archer Daniels, AutoNation, Baker Hughes, Citi, Cox Automotive, Discover Financial Services, Dollar Tree, Ellie Mae, Globe Life, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, Huntington Bank, Johnson & Johnson, MassMutual, Mastercard, McKesson, Motorola Mobility, NCR, Ohio State University, Pulte Group, Synovus, TaxSlayer, Technology Association of Georgia, TransUnion, Turner, United Airlines, US Bank, Voya Financial, and Western Digital.
