Technology Professional Takes Over New IT Security Role at CHI

09/03/10 Press Release

Sheryl Rose, a veteran technology professional who has specialized in security, compliance and risk management over an 18-year career, has been named to the newly created position of Chief Information Security Officer at Catholic Health Initiatives in Denver, the nation’s third-largest faith-based health system.

Rose will join CHI on Oct. 4 in the new position, which was created as a result of concerns over increased cyber threats, regulatory compliance requirements and a reduced tolerance for service disruptions. Rose will report to Michael O’Rourke, CHI’s Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer.

The key responsibilities for the new position incorporate overall accountability for the development and implementation of the CHI enterprise information security plan, including all IT security policies and procedures in accordance with applicable regulations and laws, and consistent information security operations and oversight. CHI’s Identity Management and ITS Security Team, led by Rafael Benitez, will report to Rose.

Rose has served in several security and information technology capacities, most recently, since January 2001, as Vice President of Global Security Operations and Disaster Recovery for Atlanta-based First Data Corporation, where she led a team of about 80 security professionals in 12 locations across the globe. She also has served as a senior associate for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Denver.

Rose earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting at Metropolitan State College, Denver. She holds a Master of Science – Computer Information Services from Regis College in Denver. She also holds several certifications: Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) from the Information Security Audit Control Association.
