Combining cutting-edge technologies with a highly talented technical team, each organization offers up a truly holistic and unrivaled complement of services and support.

Beginning in Silicon Valley, Thomas quickly learned his tradecraft working for companies such as Palm, Knowledge Universe (parent company of LeapFrog Toys), Caesars Entertainment, State of Nevada, and Tahoe Forest Hospital in Northern California prior to the 2009 launch of ProTechnical.  With a 30-year tenure as an IT professional, he has assembled a formidable team of Subject Matter Experts who complement and contribute to his vision and is recognized for his “Go-Giver” nature of giving back to great causes through charitable events, sponsorships, and volunteer work.  ProTechnical delivers brilliant and innovative IT services to the healthcare industry and was independently ranked in the top 500 Managed Services Providers worldwide.

In this book, Thomas addresses rising cybersecurity threats in healthcare.  His candid interview with Nancy, the CEO of a 25-bed hospital, uncovers the immediate cybersecurity needs of her organization. It’s an epidemic that must be treated with a balance of technology and talent to secure electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) from falling into the wrong hands.  With the high value of ePHI for sale on the Dark Web, the healthcare threat landscape couldn’t be riper for the taking through vulnerabilities and exposures.

Thomas holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with a specialization in Information Assurance and Security.  He is regularly engaged as the HIPAA Security Officer for clinics and healthcare systems.  His many years of IT experience, awareness of current threat landscapes, and ability to manage security challenges, make his writing both informative and highly relevant to IT professionals and healthcare leaders alike.
